We're often asked when we'll open a physical store in a mall near you. The answer is: we never liked malls as much as our computers. 'Cause we're geeks. And that's what we do.
But if, for instance, WIRED asked us to put a few items in their NYC popup store for the holidays, we'd say O YES THAT SOUNDS FUN.
And so we shipped off a Tauntaun Sleeping Bag and Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt to 415 West 13th Street so they could see the big city. If you're in the Meatpacking District between now and December 27th, you should stop by to say hello to our toys--but you can't buy them there. It's a store but not really. (Watch the NY1 story where the anchor [kind of] rocks out the guitar shirt.)
A small contingent of ThinkGeek monkeys are going to stop by for a visit on Saturday, December 12th during the GeekDad event from 1:00 to 2:30pm and you should come! We're scheduled to talk a little about ThinkGeek's august history, show off some goodies, and referee a t-shirt brainstorming event with the kids. It'd be lots more fun if our NYC pals turned out for the event, so you're all very cordially invited.
If you're more into hanging out over beers and old school arcade cabinets, we're also hosting a tweetup/geekout on Friday, December 11th at Barcade Brooklyn at 9:00pm. Donkey Kong or two player Tetris, anyone? The details:
Friday, December 11th
9:00 pm @ Barcade Brooklyn
388 Union Ave., Brooklyn, NY, b/t Ainslie St & Powers St
Saturday, December 12th
1-2:30PM @ Geek Dad Event, The WIRED Store
415 West 13th St, NYC, b/t 9th Avenue & Washington St
Hope we'll see you in New York!
