Café Mox, Seattle
Remember when you were hanging out with your college friends, drinking Carlo Rossi wine out of a jug while playing Magic:The Gathering? Café Mox is just that, except instead of a college dorm, it’s located at an actual bar in Ballard, Seattle.
Café Mox knows exactly who its audience is — namely, geeks. All gamers are welcome, though perhaps wisely, the rooms are cordoned off depending on what game you’re playing (just because they’re both role-playing games doesn’t mean D&D and Magic: The Gathering should be played in the same room). The food is a slightly higher-end version of mom’s cooking with the grilled cheese a popular favorite, the music is reliably 80’s and 90’s (think David Bowie and the Gorillaz), and the drinks are both cheap and plentiful.
What to order:
A pitcher of IPA for you and your fellow role-players.
