Dtoid community meetups for the month of July

11:40 AM on 07.01.2011 // Jesse Cortez

No Apparent Reason Parties -- NARPs for short -- are a long standing tradition here at Destructoid. NARPs are parties hosted by Dtoiders for Dtoiders and everyone is welcome to attend a party. It's about playing games and interacting with other people all in the name of having a good time.

Have you never been to a NARP? Well now that its the summer you have no excuse! Destructoid community members throw and organize the best events. For example, look at all the fun that Dtoid Midwest had. They even organized a gaming tournament called "Destructathon" which I hope becomes a mainstay in NARP groups around the world.

Anyway, read on below to see what NARPs are happening this month in San Francisco, Phoenix, Europe, and elsewhere!

Who: Dtoid New York - Powerglove 
What: Dave and Busters
When: July 3rd

Dtoid New York is taking a trip to the Dave and Busters at the Palisades Mall. So come out and play some games with your fellow Dtoiders! Also, shuffleboard.
