Now that Meltdown Comics and Junk Food Clothing, the folks behind you favorite classic t-shirt designs, have started to go steady, it’s time to celebrate with a good old fashioned Super Fun Game Night!

That’s why we’re pleased to announce that Thursday night from 7-9pm our friends at Hasbro and Junk Food Clothing are launching the Toy Box Game Night at Meltdown Comics. Food, drinks and the largest Nerf Battle in history! You’ll also find a My Little Pony hair coloring contest, an Operation cut-out game (bzzt!), and an edible (!) Candy Land station from Frosted Cupcakery. It’s open to the public, so come out and play at Meltdown Comics, 7522 Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles Thursday night, September 20th, 7-9 pm.
