Mom sold the Nintendo 64 for $25 back in 2005 and that was the end of that. If your classic video game console met a similar fate at a stoop sale or a Goodwill donation, here a couple of chances to re-up on nostalgia.
Entertainment group Sexy Nerds is having its latest Retro Video Game Night next Saturday at Nevada Smiths at 100 3rd Avenue. Fellow East Village nerds from Video Games New York on East 6th Street provide the discontinued video game consoles and games, and you provide the carpal tunnel syndrome.
This week’s featured games are Mario Kart 64 and the original Super Smash Brothers, both for the Nintendo 64. There also will be a Street Fighter 4 tournament if you’re one of those weirdos who plays new games.
Nostalgia isn’t free, and there is a $5 entry fee for the occasion, which starts at 9 p.m. But hey, it’s cheaper than buying a new console at the new location of 8 Bit and Up.
If you’d rather eat toadstools in Williamsburg, campy gay bar This n’ That hosts Game Ova!, featuring N64 and Wii tournaments across three screens, every Monday from 9 p.m. to midnight. Past prizes have included $50 cash for first place and a $25 bar tab for second.
