Get your game on: Bar tosses TVs for board games

A new business in Ohio is throwing the traditional idea of a bar out of the window. 

Gone will be the televisions.

Board games will be on tap for patrons.

It's called D20: A Bar with Charactersand will offer board games and table-top gaming to accompany drinks. It is planned to open in Kettering, Ohio this fall.

“This will be very different from any other bar in Dayton,” said Andrew Sparks, co-founder of D20 along with Christine Cooper.

The bar will not have any televisions, but will have more than 200 board games and table-top games available, ranging from Candyland to Risk to Axis & Allies, Sparks said. The intent is to create “almost a coffee-shop vibe,” he said. The D20 name refers to a 20-sided die — or dice — used in some role-playing games.

The 2,500-square-foot space, which previously housed a women’s fitness center and a cellphone store, will have occupancy for 60 to 65.

D20 will feature 20 beer taps as well as craft cocktails and wines.

Metallica's Kirk Hammett hosts inaugural 'Fear FestEvil' in SF

Award-winning Metallica guitarist and horror aficionado Kirk Hammett is showing off his collection of horror-film memorabilia at Fear FestEvil, the inaugural edition of Hammett's new horror and metal convention at the Regency Ballroom this weekend.

The full name of the event is Kirk Von Hammett’s FEAR FestEvil

The inaugural event will feature highlights of Hammett’s world famous Crypt Collection (including some of the most valuable horror collectibles in the world) inside the Regency Ballroom's spectacular former Masonic temple, an extensive array of panels, live music, vendors and special guests. Attendees will also have the opportunity to wander through out the venue and experience various "haunting areas" for one-of-a-kind scares. There will even be a taxidermy class held on-site at the feastival. 

Krik told KTVU his love for the horror genre came from watching 'Creature Features' with Bob Wilkins on Channel Two in the 60's and 70's. "I've come full-circle," said Kirk. "I used to watch Creature Features every Saturday night…Bob Wilkins was one of my big inspirations."

Fear FestEvil will also feature live music with performances by an array of metal bands including headlining sets by local thrash legends Exodus (Hammett's first band before joining Metallica) and Carcass on Friday and Death Angel, Orchid and Death Division on Saturday. Hammett is scheduled to join both Exodus and Death Angel onstage at the festival, and with additional metal luminaries like Anthrax founder Scott Ian, legendary guitarist Slash and Slayer's Kerry King also on hand for Saturday's events, the possibility of a historic thrash-metal jam to close the festival is a distinct possibility.
