YPG is turning 18, and we are once again celebrating with a good, old-fashioned, arcade birthday party! Join us at the Barcade in Chelsea (148 W 24th St) for happy hour specials and vintage video games, including Ms. Pac-man, Mortal Kombat, and Crazy Taxi (just to name a few!). We will also be giving out the best party favor ever—books! (If you’re not as excited about that as we are, you might be in the wrong profession.) And since a birthday party without baked goods is simply unheard of, we’re also asking anyone interested to bring some sort of baked good to share with the group (homemade and store-bought both welcome). Grab your YPG-eligible coworkers, a roll of quarters, and a batch of cupcakes, and meet us on Thursday, March 29 from 6:00–8:00 pm for a throwback birthday party you won’t want to miss.
