Direct From SF: Do Your Bars Throw 'Rock Band' Parties?

Back in college, several local bars would host "Guitar Hero" competitions.

I haven't noticed anyone in San Francisco doing anything similar. Maybe I've just missed it. But while walking my dog this week, I noticed something…else.

A "Rock Band" competition!

Not only does the bar Vertigo give away prizes to successful "Rock Band" bands, they even hold special rehearsal times for them.

That's dedication. Maybe I'll have to expand the scope of my own virtual "Rock Band" and see if we can't garner some real-life fans. Then again, maybe not. I'd rather just watch.

Do any establishments around you host video game-themed events?
