On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first person to orbit the Earth. Yuri’s Night is the World Space Party. Every April 12th the world comes together to dream about where we’re going, explore where we are, and celebrate where we’ve been. To celebrate the anniversary of this milestone in space exploration, the Phoenix aerospace community is having a Yuri’s Night (YN) event on Tuesday, April 12. See this link for more information on the global Yuri’s Night celebrations.
The local celebration will be at The Grid in Mesa! We’ll have prizes for the best space themed costumes and Legos to build spaceships. Perchdragon will be spinning all night. The Grid is Mesa’s latest neon-filled bar/arcade and blends the best craft beers with gaming culture. Admission is free!
You can RSVP for the party on Facebook (or just show up):
The Grid: Games and Growlers 525 S Gilbert Rd, Mesa, Arizona 85204
Hope to see many of you there!
