All the history you knew but forgot, and
all the booze you need to forget it again.
The Society for the Advancement of Social Studies (SASS), The Brooklyn Brainery, and Public Assembly are proud to present a series of free lectures designed to both entertain and enlighten. On the first Tuesday of month, we will discuss a different historical topic that you probably knew at one point but don’t remember anymore.
This will be accompanied by fun games, surprise guests, and most importantly THEMED DRINK SPECIALS from the good folks at Public Assembly, which everyone knows is the best way to ensure maximum knowledge gained.
We want to give a combination shout out and high five to Mr. (Monsieur?) Manning Krull for his help with making The History of Video Games so fantastical. Manning created the art for the slides and even crafted this nifty SASS shield because he’s an awesome fellow.
Want to know more about him? Get ready for it because here it comes:
Manning Leonard Krull is a web designer, illustrator, and sometimes pixel artist. Pixel art and old-school video game graphics have been a hobby of his for years. His pixel art gallery is here. Manning lived in Paris for five years, and during that time he photographed tons of pixel art mosaics that are hidden all over the city. You can see these photos on his website, Cool Stuff in Paris. Manning now lives in Brooklyn with his beautiful French girlfriend and two very handsome French rabbits.
