If you’re bored and have nothing to do mid-week, local DJs Hobo and Sweetcheeks host Beats and Boards every Tuesday evening at Raw Sugar Café.
Pawel Skorupski, also known as DJ Hobo, conceived the night of games and great music when he bumped into his friend Robert Parungao playing board games in a Chinatown alley last summer.
“I saw Robert’s love of board games and asked if he wanted to try it out with some DJs,” Skorupski says. “He said yes.”
“We all love playing board games, listening to music, eating some snacks and sipping a brew,” Skorupski says. “This is just a way to get out of your living room and make it a more social event.”
Cover is $2 and attendees are encouraged to bring their favourite board games. It’s a laid-back event; attendees can join a game that is already in progress or a game in need of an extra player. Beats and Boards features a rotating roster of guest DJs. Tonight’s beat masters will be Hobo and Sweetcheeks themselves.
