PAX South Opening Party
We are returning to PAX South 2018 and are looking forward to hosting an opening night party for everyone to enjoy!

Our events have been so successful over the past few years that we had to expand to a larger venue. You might remember our parties at On the Rocks Pub located directly underneath the McDonalds. This year we are happy to be moving to a 25k+ square foot venue and have the entire 2nd floor reserved for our event! NO VIP - NO Reservations - NO Expectations! Just come as you are and have a blast partying your Friday night away with us at Houston Gaymers PAX Party!!!

Date :
Friday, January 12th

Location :
Bonham Exchange
411 Bonham St.
San Antonio, TX 78205
