Microsoft Store

If you happen to live near one of the over 100 Microsoft Store retail locations in the US and Canada, you can check out a launch party event for the company's new Surface 3 tablet today. The parties all begin at 4 p.m. in their local timezones.

Here's what Microsoft says you can expect when you arrive:

"Attendees are invited to enjoy giveaways, music and food, and even put their pop-culture trivia skills to the test for a chance to win prizes!"

There's no word on what kinds of giveaways and prizes each Microsoft Store will have, but any chance to win stuff is welcome by us. We also suspect that store employees will try to demo the new 10.8-inch Surface 3 tablet.
