Twenty Sided Store

A retail store and event space in Williamsburg Brooklyn that focuses on high quality Board Games, Role Playing Games, and Magic: The Gathering.

Tune In Tuesday This weekend I had the pleasure of talking business with both my cousin Larry, Erie Street Cafe, and my parents, Ivéta Cafe while they were passing through New York. It is great to have generations of experience to bounce ideas off of, and reassuring to know that the challenges Luis and I face everyday are pretty common place when you own your own business. When the Bilanko’s and Lenzi’s get together you can better believe it’s all shop talk. My cousin had not seen my dad in over 20 years, yet it felt like old times.

After weeks of preparation, we finally got the floors sanded, primed, and stained. The first of 3 coats of polyurethane go on tonight and by next week, after a 6 day set time, we should be able to start assembling the permanent work space and game play space.

Check out the pictures!

Turbo - Charged for Glory (1982)

From the land of obscure New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) comes Turbo's 7", Charged for Glory. It's pretty typical late 70s, early 80s metal that came out of the UK. Relatively light distortion and slow tempo by today's metal standards, it was pretty groundbreaking stuff 30+ years ago.

As a teenager, I read liner notes and interviews with headlining 80s thrash bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Exodus and always saw references to NWOBHM and how they wouldn't exist without those bands. Finding the major bands' albums, a la the Monsters of Rock, was never a problem. Finding tapes of NWOBHM bands WAS tough, especially if you were a 14 years old and in New Mexico like me.

Monsters of Rock 1988

In a time before YouTube, Google, MP3s (and to an extent, CDs) - besides Iron Maiden, NWOBHM was a total mystery to me until the advent of college and The Internet. Fortunately, it's 2015 and music is much easier to find!

If you like this, I recommend checking out Aragorn's 1981 Black Ice.


About Metal Monday

Luis discovered metal sometime while in Catholic middle school - born of part rebellion and some incurable urge to hear as many palm muted low e-strings as possible - metal became an obsession of his as a teenager.

Metal Monday's is our chance every week to headbang with all of you (if that's your thing).

Tune In Tuesday

Supermoon Lunar Eclipse

Rare celestial events, like the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse happening this Sunday, have a way of making me think about life.

I work so much and most of my friends have moved out of the city or are incredibly busy with their own businesses, work, life, etc. This week two of my best friends have been helping me with projects at the store. Tedious organizational tasks no longer feel like work. Everyday this week I have had a chance to gossip and catch up while being simultaneously super productive.

I truly believe that, as humans, we are all connected within the universe. The moods, feelings, and vibes that we emit into the ethos everyday touch everyone and have a way of transmitting messages. Just think about all those times when you felt like your ears were ringing when you had a thought about someone and then you got text from them or you ran into them unexpectedly.

When this project started, I kept wishing I could ask two friends for help, but one was living in another country and the other was opening up his own coffee shop. Then, just this week, one moved back to Brooklyn and the other, waiting on paperwork, wanted to help out. Some may call this a coincidence, but I am convinced this is synchronicity.
