[Worldwide/Oakland, CA :: 6/11
] It’s been hard keeping this under wraps but I’ve been working behind the scenes with Attaboy, Annie, and Team Fairyland on the first-ever Game of Shrooms Post-Hunt Meet-up and Picnic
! Forage during the day
, and then play at Children’s Fairyland (my day job) in Oakland, California, at night! It’s an all-ages, booze-free event which means you can come in without a kid
, or bring one that played the game with you. I’ll be there with SJ, my 17-year-old hyper-competitive shroom-hunter.
Early bird tickets are $15/pp and limited in quantity
. When they sell out, the price jumps to $20/pp. Attaboy writes, “Surprises may happen!” and I have no doubt they will. Full details and tickets here
