Austin’s Classic Gaming Convention: Game Over Videogames – Classic & Used Games from Atari to Xbox

TGIF Hi-Tech Chic fans!

I’m excited to inform you all that I will be at the Classic Gaming Convention in Austin this weekend covering it for Cutegeek and Hi-Tech Chic.

This years event is said to be one of the largest conventions in Texas. will have a 45,000 square-foot vendor and event hall to showcase and celebrate classic and retro video games. The two day fest includes free play on hundreds of retro game systems and arcades, retro game tournaments, costume contests, live video game musicians, a retro game museum and a large marketplace to sell, fix or buy your own retro games and consoles.*

Though most want to see my Waldo costume I’m changing it up a bit with my LED shoelaces, Flashton Statement LED shirt and retro hi tops. Also, since it’s National Dance Day on Saturday I will be doing the “running man”  in front of as many booths as I can and will post the videos on YouTube. If you see me come take a picture of me and do the running man next to me or Kid n’ Play. I will also be at the Tekforce show on Sunday at noon.

AND GET THIS….

The Classic Game Fest will also be hosting a Pokemon Go meetup area complete with ongoing lures during the festivities! There are TONS of PokeStops near the event, and there’s even a Gym across the event lawn. Pokemon go
