Welcome to the
Gluten Free Gaming Cafe

We're Allen and Kelsey, just a couple geeks who love video games, coffee, and the Oxford comma.

About us

We've been streaming in various forms since 2016. You may have known us as OkoCNella and GeekishlyApropos when we streamed separately, as Merry Happy Timezone when we first went co-op, or you may be just now meeting us via the Gluten Free Gaming Cafe.In our 9th year as content creators we've decided to reboot and start from scratch. We started streaming back in the day with big goals and dreams of success, but we discovered some things along the way that lead us here-

  • Working 40-hour jobs and streaming full time just isn't feasible.

  • We enjoy having free time so it's important to set a stream schedule and stick to it.

  • Streaming is hard work. We love it, but we've learned we love it more when we can set a healthy pace that isn't focused on constant content creation.


I'm an eclectic individual who's overly enthusiastic about analog synthesizers, Gunpla, Lucas Arts adventure games, and how-it's-made videos.


I'm a graphic designer and social media manager. I love Star Trek, period dramas, reading, and do a lot of crafty things.

Hours of Operation

We're big believers in having a good work-life balance. It's important to maintain our sanity and not lose ourselves in creating content. So, as much as we'd like to stream more often, we keep a limited schedule to avoid getting overwhelmed and burnt out. We don't want to lose our love of streaming.

  • Mondays @ 6:30 p.m. CST

  • Tuesdays @ 6:30 p.m. CST

  • Thursdays @ 6:30 p.m. CST


We've been privileged with good health, we own a home, and we haven't been discriminated against. Everyone deserves that so we try to help where we can.Over the last 7 years we have been participating in fundraising campaigns for various causes.
