Viva Las Vegas! Operation Supply Drop’s “8-Bit Salute To Veterans” Adds Vegas Event!

Military gaming charity Operation Supply Drop announces that it’s already absurdly large series of live events for the “8-Bit Salute to Veterans” (Celebrating Veteran’s Day and build video game stuffed care packages for troops deployed to Afghanistan) has added a new venue: Las Vegas!

I’ve already got live events taking place Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, New York City to collect donations, but adding Vegas…well, it just feels damn awesome, especially when you see where the event is going to be held. 

Las Vegas:

Insert Coin(s) Interactive Nightlife

November 10 th, 2012, 7:00-10:00 PM

512 Fremont St

Las Vegas, NV 89101


Organizer: , Barry Villatoro from

The owner of Las Vegas’ unique “Insert Coin(s)” gaming-oriented nightclub, Chris LaPorte, has graciously allowed our city team to occupy his club for our event! The nightclub doubles as an arcade, complete with the latest and greatest PS3 and Xbox 360 games being played across 14 large screen HDTVs, an arcade with 60 vintage game cabinets, and a dance floor with guest and resident DJs spinning.  The event is open to the general public, with a variety of swag raffles, charity auctions to help raise donations for the troops for Veteran’s Day (I’ve never had bottle service at a stand-up arcade, but it warms my heart to know that there is a place where it exists)!

For questions about the Las Vegas event, or any of the events occurring in NYC, LA, Dallas, Chicago and how your organization can be a part of this growing event honoring our Armed Services, feel free to contact:
