  • Why are there numbers next to Jacksonville? Is this a fantasy game?
GB’s Bottle Shop invites old-school sports game fans to join them for a tournament using an antique Nintendo 64 and a copy of NFL Blitz. Oskar Blues will be on hand with a special draft selection along with some old favorites.

6:30 p.m. Wednesday; GB’s Bottle Shop, 531 Virginia Drive; free;
