All events are open to all ages unless otherwise specified. Events/times are subject to change or be added at any time, please check back with the calendar for updates.

One of our founding members, Isaac Taylor, will be leaving Texas after this month and he is also celebrating his birthday this month, on the same week as two of our other participants. There is a larger birthday party planned for the weekend, so this is primarily a good chance to give Isaac a send off before he leaves for Portland! People are welcome to bring games to play, food, presents, or donations to The Real School.
