Welcome to the Destructoid San Francisco group. This blog is meant for all Dtoiders that are in or near the San Francisco area. The purpose here is to set up community events such as NARPs and any type of get together like conventions, cons, industry events, etc. This is done for and by the community because sometimes, just talking to each other on the Internets isn't enough.
If you want to be added to the friend's list or want to set up some kind of party/event, then please just PM me.
Sign up for our Google Group! Please include your Dtoid name in the request :D
Jealous that you don't live in the San Francisco area? Check out our friends and see if there's a group near you!
E3 is coming up (seriously, look at our countdown!), and if you are most gamers, you are completely jealous that you can't attend. However, thanks to Bob Allbritton at Starbase One in San Raphael, there is an event happening this weekend to help ease the pain of not being in LA!
This Sunday, June 13th, there will be a Super Street Fighter 4 tournament held at Pinky's Pizza in San Raphael for cash and prizes! After an entry fee, you will have a chance to win a portion of the money collected for the tournament along with Mad Catz Tournament Edition Fightsticks!
If San Rafael is too far, but you want to check out the action, you can always check out a live stream of the event at www.iplaywinner.com!
So, which of you DtoidSF members are going to represent for the Dtoid army, and win all the prizes? All the details can be found below!
