Campus Cards and Games is changing the definition of what “drinking games” means.
Earlier this month, the popular card and board game store opened a bar, appropriately named “Sidequest.”
The bar carries all of the traditional favorites for a bar, as well as a few brews inspired by pop culture, such as the Game of Thrones inspired Three Eyed Raven Ale.
Owner and UCF graduate Eric Robinnet says they are trying to cater more to the college crowd located around the area.
“We get board gamers, people playing cards, magic, miniature games, and they are all enjoying a beer while they play,” said Robinnet.
The bar also carries a full array of drinks for those who aren’t looking to drink alcohol or who aren’t old enough, including a fridge of soda, water and the magical Harry Potter favorite, Butterbeer.
The bar also hosts specials throughout the week in accordance with what is going on. For example, one dollar off all “Hobgoblin Ales” during your Dungeons and Dragons Adventure, or “Drafts and Drafts,” A Magic the Gathering format where you draft cards, while drinking drafts. And for when your games get especially intense, you can order your drinks online and have them delivered right to your table.
