Friday, I attended the special Time Travel Weekend day that celebrated Doctor Who.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, exactly, since it was my first Pop-Cultured event with Barnes and Nobel. When I entered the store, I was greeted by a TARDIS cardboard cutout and a table explaining a Doctor Who prize pack giveaway, along with some merchandise the store sells. I signed up for the giveaway, then noted the enthusiastic conversation about Doctor Who going on
I continued onward into the store, partially distracted because I always get off track in Barnes and Noble…
…but eventually I made my way over to the trivia tables:
There were three tables set up: Doctors 1-4, 5-9, and then a table for the new Doctor Who series from Eccleston to Capaldi. At each table, you had a sheet of trivia questions to answer for each set of Doctors. I only made it to the New Doctors and 5-9, but successfully completed both and got stickers for my sheet.
They were also giving out these little posters at the trivia tables:
Overall, I had fun, and definitely want to go to more of these Pop-Cultured events. But most exciting of all, I got a phone call Saturday from Barnes and Noble. I WON A PRIZE PACK IN THE DOCTOR WHO GIVEAWAY!
- “Trust Me I’m the Doctor” bag
- TARDIS mug
- Mini light up TARDIS
- Mini Cyberman bust
- Doctor Who Series Nine mini promo poster
So, definitely check out the other events going on this month. You can read more and find out about some extra store specific events at the Barnes and Noble site.
