Last weekend while walking around Lowell, MA for the annual Folk Festival Ariana spotted a stylized dragon poking out from the block of buildings ahead of us. As we got closer we saw the name in the window was "Tabletop Arena" which seamed at least reasonably promising. We went in and found several tables with Magic card games going. We talked to the staff they seemed reasonably interested in have historical games played there so I reached out to the owners about trying to set up some demo games.
In emailing back and for with Tony (one of the owners) we hit on the Idea of me coming in a few Sundays this month to paint and see if it could stir-up any interests.
We had a few people nibble, most seemed more interested in 40k (a game I have never gotten into) but I think they might give FOW or Blackpowder a try if it was offered to them.
Table top arena has a newly stocked rack of GW paints and supplies as well as what I believe to a good selection of Warhamer Fantasy and 40k miniatures. Tony has said they can special odder other products.
Local readers please check out this new games store and keep in mind they have been open a grand total of two weeks so they are a work in progress. Let me know if you would be interested in joining me some time for a historical demo of some sort.
