Rogue’s Tavern Returns!

Date: Saturday, Feb. 10, 2024

Location: Preston VASA Hall
10530 324th Pl SE Issaquah, WA 98027

Cost: $25.00. SCA members will receive a $5 member discount off the cost listed. Wear SCA garb to this event.

Come and join us – the setting is a tavern at a crossroads. Who knows what interesting persons you may meet there.

There will be games and music, bards and rogues. A meal is included for the money you give to enter and shelter from the cold.
Games-masters will be on hand to teach and encourage playing games for fun and profit. A small purse of tokens will come with your entry, and there will be prizes for those who have the best luck at the tables.
A fire master will ensure that the outdoor fire is well stocked, and ingredients for a special treat will be available to roast on sticks.
The Fromage Fete party band has been invited to play music for all to hear. Perhaps in the corner a harpist will make you shed a tear.
Mischief and mayhem, song, game, and drink will be in vogue. All at the Tavern of the Raging Rogue.
