If you’re like us, you still have some vestigial Nintendo thumb skills that aren’t being put to use at the moment because either you don’t have an old Nintendo sitting around, or you have one but you don’t have a TV. Well, it’s time to put those skills you developed as an unathletic 8-year-old to use, because competitive Nintendo league Our Princess Is In Another Castle is setting up every Tuesday night at the Gowanus Whole Foods now.
Yeah, we know, Whole Foods. On the other hand, free Nintendo and the companionship of people who also enjoy trying to knock out that dastardly Soda Popinski. The video game action goes down every Tuesday from 7pm to 10pm at the rooftop bar at the Gowanus Whole Foods (214 3rd Street), with different games or theme nights cycling through every week.
Tonight’s action is focused more on the one-player experience, as nerds with dextrous thumbs compete to see who can dominate Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, but future editions promise a Street Fighter 2 night and even an Excitebike night. Everyone loves Excitebike.
