*UPDATE: This event is family friendly , so bring the kids along too! The event is still family friendly but they are now opening up early and setting the hours of 5:00 – 8:00 P.M. as kid friendly hours. After 8:00 P.M. the event will be 18+, so bring the kids for a couple hours. Unless you just need a geeky night out away from them.

The price will go up the day of the event and you will have to pay full price ($45) so make sure you grab your tickets today. I will be there covering the event wearing my black The Mommy Gamers t-shirt, so please come hang out with me and make sure to at least say hi if you see me!

But the fun doesn’t stop when the event ends. All GAAM attendees (21 and up) are invited to the “After After Party” in Downtown Jax at Dive Bar.  Oh, and did I mention this party is absolutely FREE?

If you’re planning to come to town and party all night, please be responsible. Either have a designated driver planned out or just crash downtown. Omni Hotels have been kind enough to put together a special rate of only $79 a night for GAAM Attendees! The hotel is within walking distance of the After After Party, and only a few minutes from the GAAM event. Remember, a cab or a hotel room is always cheaper than a DUI.  Just use this link  , and you’ll instantly receive the discount!

 

If you still need to be convinced to go this fun event, check out this video from last year:
