Silly Venture 2023 SE - Staying faithful to ATARI's roots!

Post by grey/msb »

It's time to present the new SV2023SE logo...

Image

...whose author since 2000 is mOOnie / MSB and to announce the date of the summer edition of our event!

SV2023SE will take place from August 17 to August 20, 2023 (Thursday-Sunday).

Since many people ask me about the new venue, I decided to make a quick video to present it:

A few more words about the new place:

- the new venure is only 1 km from Gedanus!
- 1km to the old town!
- buffet on site!
- free beer without limits!
- small sleeping room on site!
- pizzeria and cafe on the ground floor of the building!
- smoking area
- free parking!
- "Biedronka" market 120m from the party-place!

Staying faithful to ATARI's roots! This is the permanent motto of our event! Since 2000, we've been bringing together all the scenes related to Atari platforms - it's thanks to you that we are the largest multi-Atari platform event under the sign of Mount Fuji in the world!

More details soon :)

I have no idea what you mean, "prostitution"? 8O Do you know the meaning of this word? Have you ever been to Silly Venture and someone made you such an offer? I would ask you not to overuse words. The dance shows were performed by girls from the strip club, but there are no such offers as you suggest and never have been (prostitution). This club in Gdansk is known for its erotic shows at hen parties, stag parties, birthdays, etc. There is NOTHING other than a dance show.

There were 3 minutes (yes, 3 minutes!) devil's shows years back, but we skipped that idea for years now - last time devil's show took place in 2019
and no plans for more.

Cheers.

Here's one of the shows I mentioned - from Silly Venture 2011 - the guy dancing also works in this club (but he doesn't undress, don't worry! ;) ) He is responsible for the dance choreography. Unfortunately, the sound has been turned off in part of the video due to copyright (it was Marilyn Manson's music cut by YouTube), but I think it gives you some idea anyway:

Wow, that looked like a really fun place to be! Too bad it's "across the pond"
for some of us... :)

I think PeP was just inquiring about work opportunities. You know, to visit Atari friends and make some bucks at the same time.

Oh, so it was PeP? PeP=shoggoth? I didn't know that :) Hope PeP didn't get me wrong... I hope my answer wasn't rude or something.

Since a lot of people ask me in private messages about accommodation related to the summer edition of Silly Venture 2023 (and there are also those who already "booked" their favorite places on their own a long time ago), it's time to present a bit more detailed information on this topic. As I mentioned earlier, we plan to have a small sleeping room at the party place, but to this day I have no information on how large a group is interested in such an option - which is important because it will be very limited.

Image

The first place I suggest is "DOM SONATA":

Image

"SONATA" Student House (distance from party-place: 400 m)
Łąkowa 1-2 street
80-743 Gdansk
POLAND

phone: +48 58 300 92 60, +48 58 300 92 61
fax: +48 58 300 92 50

e-mail: domsonata@amuz.gda.pl
website: http://www.domsonata.com.pl/

"Dom Sonata" during the academic year serves as a dormitory, while during the holiday season it serves as a hotel facility. It is located in a 4-storey historic 19th-century building on the campus of the Academy of Music in Gdańsk at Łąkowa 1-2 street (exactly in the well-known Dom Muzyka and on the same street as the party place - Łąkowa 35/38 street, Gdańsk).

- 400 m from the party place
- 400 m from the Old Town
- 400 m from the Polish Baltic Philharmonic
- 2 km from the Main Railway Station in Gdańsk
- 12 km from the airport

Due to the so-called "high season" during the summer SV there is no possibility of lowering prices, which are very attractive at the start in this place. Entering the password "ATARI" in the subject of the e-mail will result in booking rooms in the first place.

On the SV date at the moment (07/03/2023) the following rooms are available:
- 6 single rooms
- 14 double rooms
- 16 triple rooms

Room prices:
1-person: 180 PLN
2-person: 245 PLN
3-person: 310 PLN

Each room is equipped with a bathroom with shower, TV, telephone, Wi-Fi, fridge.

There is free parking on site.

The facility does not provide breakfast, but there are vending machines with sandwiches, salads, hot dishes, cold and hot drinks, and sweets.

The second place I suggest is the "DOM MUZYKA":

Image

DOM MUZYKA HOTEL *** (Distance from party-place: 400 m)
Łąkowa 1-2 street
80-743 Gdansk
POLAND

phone: 58 326 06 00

e-mail: biuro@dommuzyka.pl
website: http://dommuzyka.pl/

Room prices:

Please make reservations using the password "ATARI", preferably to the following e-mail address: biuro@dommuzyka.pl

Thanks to that, you will receive discounts on accommodation as follows:

Single room: 320 PLN ("ATARI" password - 290 PLN) + local tax - 2.80 PLN/day/person
Double: 390 PLN ("ATARI" password - 350 PLN) + local tax - 2.80 PLN/day/person

The room rate includes breakfast and VAT.

Pursuant to the resolution of the City Council, the local tax is not charged in the case of business stays.

For guests of "Dom Muzyka" there is a free, unguarded car park in the closed area of ​​the Academy of Music.

Resetting parking tickets takes place at the reception of "Dom Muzyka".

ATTENTION !!! In case of any problems with booking (or lack of rooms) please let me know - the e-mail address for me is in the "Contact" tab on our website - direct link - https://www.sillyventure.eu/pl/contact-us

Please take into account that August in Gdańsk is quite an attractive month for tourists, so I would advise you not to delay your reservations for too long. Of course, if necessary, I will try to find another accommodation. From the very fact of organizing accommodation, neither I nor anyone from the SV team receives any financial gratification, which is why I am open to your suggestions regarding other places.

Traditional thanks to Hospes for graphic assistance and Unseen Menace for grammar checking ;)
