GUN AND MALLOW
The legendary battle of DUMBO may not have made it into history books. It may not have even involved firearms or led to any casualties. In fact, all we really know is that it did involve marshmallows. On Saturday, the wacky game enthusiasts over at Newmindspace present a reenactment of the Marshmallow Civil War to commemorate this dubious showdown of a bygone era. Warriors will be divided into two armies and should bring some sort of marshmallow slingshot or shooter (or use one of the "ghetto" extra ones provided). Oh, and don't forget a bag of Jet-Puffed. Location to be announced on newmindspace.com.
