The 2upGamers Community second anniversary event is a thing on 29 November, but is slightly shrouded in secrecy. The venue was a “secret location” up until yesterday (it has now been revealed as the The Cullinan Hotel in Cape Town’s Foreshore), while the attractions are “top secret”, although the “Master Chief” has been confirmed as a guest. The event page plays things close to its chest, but it does give cover charge costs. R50 for a single and R80 for a couple. The time is 7pm for 7:30pm.
