Hey everyone!



Its almost Halloween! In between searching for that perfect costume, make sure to come out to one of DtoidSF's meetups this month!

What: Super Nerd Night
Where: Edinburgh Castle Pub
When: Thursday, Jul 7th, 7:00 PM

Super Nerd Night is the monthly gathering of gamers in SF to play games in a pub, from board games, to fighting games, to other things in between. They have recently changed venues and regular times. Now SNN will be held the first Thursday of the month. Check out the blurb straight from the facebook event:

"After many nights of standing room only events we've finally found a proper venue. We're also going to be offering cash prizes for our fighting tournament and adding more board games to the SNN collection.

Like always this is an open event and perfect for anyone who is new to the city as jumping into games with strangers is highly encouraged.

Bring your boardgames and we'll supply the rest!"

What: Geeks VS Geeks Trivia Challenge
Where: Fly Bar Sutter
When: Monday, Oct 10th, 7:30 PM

Geeks vs Geeks is returning to SF! Anyone want to make a Destructoid team and show how awesome our nerd knowledge is?

"You're a geek and you know it! You have an inordinate amount of random, mostly useless information floating in your head. Regular trivia games don't honor that knowledge. Come join us for a game of Geeks VS Geeks, where we ask questions about the things YOU love."

What: Halloween plans
Where: Dont' know yet
When: Epic time

I most definitely want to organize SOMETHING for Halloween, but I havent had time. So pay attention to the c-blog/facebook/twitter to find out more as the month progresses!

Anyway, that's whats planned this month for DtoidSF! As per usual, join our emailer, and follow us on facebook and twitter! Hope to see you at an event!

Hey guys!

If you are in DtoidSF, pay attention! Introducing to you now, the DtoidSF Toidlet! As mentioned by Hamza in the Destructoid mega-guide that was posted today, Toidlets are little versions of Destructoid that only have stories related to topics of interest to the group. With that in mind, I've started up the DtoidSF toidlet to act as our own mini oasis of all things related to our awesome community here in San Francisco!

How does it work? Well, whenever you write a blog, if you are added to the toidlet, you will be able to send your blog to be posted in this group along with being the main c-blog area. Being featured in this toidlet means that if anyone wants to get a quick glimpse of the goings on of our little community, they can just check it out in one location.

On the official account, I will be sending all the NARP posts to the toidlet, but where you come in is post other blogs here as well! It would be great to showcase the blogging chops of our community in one place, in particular recaps of all the events we go to! I'd love it if the next time you guys go to an event, take some photos, videos, and just blog about your great time...then send it to the DtoidSF toidlet. This way, we will have a one stop place for showing off the awesomeness that is the DtoidSF community group!

If you are a member of DtoidSF, but arent on the Toidlet yet, send a PM to the DtoidSanFrancisco account and I'll add you to the list! And if you have any ideas for how else we can utilize this group, just mention them in the comments, or in the emailer! Happy Blogging!
