3 Blind Dice is in the heart of Winston-Salem – joining the Porch and Hoots as part of the
vibrant and growing West End Mill Works. It is a gathering place for people to relax, meet new friends, and become part of a community of people who love board gaming and a good cup of joe. It was founded last year by Connor Doten, a graduate of UNCG’s Bryan School of Business.
Connor has recently launched a line of customized coffee brews that complement the store’s gaming theme. “We’ve been working with our small-batch local roaster to develop three unique offerings; a rich, dark roast called Ace of Spades, a decaf option named Dungeons and Decaf, and of course our signature house blend, Homebrew.” Homebrewing refers to the making of your own set of rules when playing a game.
The atmosphere at the store is fun, comfortable, colorful and happy, featuring up-cycled doors, windows, and game boards as the decor. Soft, comfy seating, free wifi and plenty of baked goods, snacks, and sandwiches make it a place you can linger for hours. Other perks include an incredible selection of board games and accessories for sale, and a vast library of games you can play free of charge, or rent and take home. Store hours are Monday through Saturday noon to 11 p.m. and Sundays noon to 8 p.m.
With the new coffee line now available, Connor felt it was the perfect time to celebrate his growing business with a Ribbon Cutting celebration. The event will take place Wednesday, May 2, 2018 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 1151 Canal Dr. Suite 103. City officials will commemorate the celebration with a ribbon cutting at 4 p.m., followed by board games, demos, giveaways, gourmet coffees and refreshments.
Connor is thrilled about the ribbon-cutting. “The store has quietly been here for a year. We were waiting until we established ourselves and had our food and beverages in place before our official ribbon-cutting. It is a milestone we are truly excited about and we look forward to sharing it with the community.”
