Cakewalk
Cakewalk: the elementary-school-era, carnival-style game comes to the Hideout on 10/10, so you can have your cake and drink some too.

Wikipedia describes cakewalk as a game that requires no skill to win. Here's how it works:
During a cakewalk, participants walk, dance, or otherwise move around in a circle as music plays. When the music stops, everybody freezes. Organizers pick a number out of a hat), and whoever is standing on that number WINS A WHOLE CAKE! It's just like grade school, except you'll never lose to a fifth grader.

With creative, edible prizes provided by favorite nearby bakeries and tunes from local musicians Phil Toscano (THE BRIBES), Dan Ingenthron, and Mike Holtz (Clip Art), this is your opportunity to check out your neighborhood bakeries, dig some 50s tunes, form strategic cake-winning alliances, and enjoy some free pastries all in one place. This is community-building in its most delicious form. Vegan, gluten-free, or just don't like cake? You're covered too.
