Gamers and guests are invited to join Patrick Hickey Jr. and Annika Connor on September 6th at 7pm for Video Games: Inside the Minds of the Creators


Who wrote "Romeo & Juliet? Who first sang "Thriller"? Who played Captain America in the last Avengers flick? All of these questions are basic pop culture knowledge that everyone, regardless of their geekdom, knows. But who are the minds behind some of the most influential video games of all-time? Don't know, right? Don't useGoogle, either!

But here's the bigger question: Why aren't their names enshrined in our memories, too? Why aren't these men and women's names just as synonymous in pop culture lore as those in music, film and literature?

"The Minds Behind the Games: Interviews with Cult and Classic Game Developers" is the first video game book of its kind to get access to some of the most iconic and unique video game developers from the past 40 years, from the Atari 2600 to the PlayStation 4 and even failed consoles the likes of the Ouya and NEMO. 

The nights discussion will follow with a Q & A with Patrick Hickey Jr moderated by Artist/Actress Annika Connor. The conversation will include dialogue with the audience and participation and questions from the attendees will be highly encouraged.  

*Please note: Parlor & Omar’s are private members clubs and all members and guests will be required to wear either formal attire, or upscale / business casual attire. Guests seeking entrance who are underdressed may be denied access.
