Last night, CoLab hosted Game Night up in The Lab. Various board games coupled with beer, pizza, and plenty of snacks made for an awesome evening enjoyed by some of our members. Leonardo of Counterparts Media taught everyone how to play dominoes. Entertainment was provided by CoLab members, See Magic Live.

This is a free event, open to members of the community and CoLab. If interested in attending this event, please RSVP on our Meetup page. We look forward to seeing you there!
