RTX IS ALMOST UPON US!
Looking for some community events to attend during RTX weekend? I highly encourage you to check out the events hosted by Sidequest! If you are unfamiliar with Sidequest, that's okay! Here's a brief snapshot about them!
"Originally born from the Rooster Teeth fan community, we are perhaps best known for our SideQuest Community Weekend (formerly called RTX SideQuest), a series of meetups and parties held before, during, and after RTX in Austin, TX. Since the first RTX in 2011, SideQuest has organized safe, inclusive, unforgettable events for community members to connect with one another outside the hustle and bustle of the RTX convention."
Now on to the even better stuff! What events can expect from Sidequest this year?
- SideQuest Charity Gala (Thursday, August 2nd)
Time to play dress-up, hang out with your pinkies out, and bid on one-of-a-kind artwork, beautifully designed props, and other great items donated from throughout the RT community. All auction proceeds benefit SideQuest’s partner charities, including Child’s Play, AbleGamers, and Operation Supply Drop. This year we’re hosting the event at The Line Hotel in downtown Austin, just a short walk from the Austin Convention Center and other downtown hotels.
**Special note about the charity gala. If you're the creative and artistic type, Sidequest is still accepting unique items to be auctioned off at the gala. If you would like to send in something, fill out this form! For ideas on what was submitted in the past, feel free to check out this album.
- SideQuest Barlympics (Saturday, August 4th)
Come party with us to Buffalo Billiards on Austin’s iconic Sixth Street. Have a round or three in the company of your SideQuest family, because we’ve reserved the entire upstairs space of Buffalo Billiards for this event. And when you’re done being cordial, throw down against other community members in a variety of games. Rack up points for your team and compete for glory. Will your squad have the honor of hoisting the SideQuest Cup at the end of the night? (NOTE: This event is only for guests 18 and up.)
- SideQuest Lounge and RTX Wrap-Up Party (Sunday, August 5th)
Come on back to Buffalo Billiards and cap off your RTX weekend with one last night of fun. You can even bring along your RTX friends who don’t have SideQuest tickets, because we’ve locked down the entire venue for an RTX-attendees only party! An RTX badge is all you need to get in on the bottom level, but a SideQuest ticket is still required to access the SideQuest Lounge upstairs. (NOTE: This event is only for guests 18 and up.)
You can buy your tickets here! AND Sidequest is offering y'all a 10% off discount code! When you purchase your tickets, don't forget to use RTSideQuest10 when checking out!
I hope to see you at one or all of these events! I have to figure out what I'm going to wear for the gala now.
