Dtoid's No Apparent Reason Parties for the month of July

3:00 PM on 07.13.2010 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

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.

It's Summer time! If you are like me, you enjoy taking some time in the summer to relax and enjoy some videogames.What better way to enjoy said games and gaming culture than with your fellow Dtoid community members? The Destructoid city group leaders from around the world have worked tirelessly to plan some events near you where everyone can meet up and have a great time!

Follow on after the break to see what NARPs are happening in Australia, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Toronto, London, Belgium, Texas, and the Northwest! 

Who: Dtoid Australia - FooLiz
What: Burlesque show, Trivia Night at Mana Bar, Medieval Tournament and Movie Night
When: July 13, 24, 27th

WOAH! Those are a lot of dates up there! DtoidAustralia has many events planned this month, all the way from the gaming related trivia nights at the Mana Bar, to the NVGR but equally awesome Miss Burlesque International Brisbane Heats. On top of that, there are plans to be uber nerdy and attend the 2010 Abbey Medieval Tournament as well have a movie night late in the month.

Unpopular opinion time: I not only consider Kanye West to be one of my favorite rappers of all-time — yes, I'm being serious — but he's one of the very few people in the world whom I'd consider to be a role model. I truly wish he would notice me one d
