AHAHAHAHA…. It’s ALIVE!!!!

You’re invited to join a Mad Scientist Halloween party on Saturday, October 19th. 

Prove your genius as we face off for board game experiments starting at 4pm! Bring all your spooky games such as Zombies, Mansion of Madness, Pandemic, Arkham Horror, Gloom, Betrayal at House on the Hill, and Werewolf. All other games are welcome, but we hope to play enough frightening games to have people quake with fear.

In the spirit of Halloween, costumes are mandatory! Bring a lab coat and dress as your favorite mad scientist (bonus points for Dr. Horrible) or grab some scrubs and come as a crazy doctor. Other costumes are welcome as long as they match the Mad Scientist theme of the party. Some other examples are zombies, monsters, nurses, mad creations, Frankenstein, and Bride of Frankenstein. Anyone coming in the door not in costume will be turned into a failed experiment. You have been warned.

In a genius mastermind plot to see some awesome costumes at this party we have decided to hold a costume contest with game prizes. Game prizes for a game event? Madness!


Ben and I have a huge bin of Mad Scientist lab decorations to provide a haunting good time! Leave your queasy stomachs at home. Finger bites, assorted eyeballs, gummy body parts, and brains will be served. Mmmnn, brains! 

As always, feel free to bring your own treats. A variety of drinks will be provided or you’re welcome to bring your own poison. For those 21 years and older, syringe filled red Jell-O shots and other fun chemical reactions await your sampling.  We are looking for volunteers to bring colorful drinks such as Midori, Raspberry Vodka, or Hypnotic that we can label as toxic waste.  Please drink responsibly.

We're located at 2424 Emerald Court Apt 106 in Woodridge. We’re just west of I-355 off Janes Ave between 75th Street and Boughton. Please note Janes Ave is a 25mph street and the police strictly enforce it. Make sure to get a guest parking pass from us if you plan to stay late.


For people with pet allergies, please be aware that we have three cats and three chinchillas. If you have allergies please bring your antihistamine of choice if you plan to attend. This is a smoke-free apartment.

We hope you will all join us for some explosive fun!

    Looks like the menu has changed and we're bringing sloppy joes instead (including a batch of vegan that will hopefully be just as delicious).

    Spooky Board Game Night is less than two weeks away! I hope you have your costumes ready!

    Can anyone attending bring along an extra folding table and chairs? With the weather getting colder we'll need to squeeze everyone inside. Still looking for a few people to volunteer to bring drinks & additional food. I'll be making the monster fruit, jello shot petri dishes, a pasta or salad, and some additional treats, but additional food & especially drinks would be most welcome. If you're willing to help chip in please let us know what you'll be bringing. Thanks!

      I will not be able to get there early, would you still need chairs?
