We're fortunate enough to join the Sci-Fi Group, the Boardgame Group and several other groups at Mystic Celt on the first Monday of the month for games, socializing, and having a general good time. Rather than come up with brand new copy, I'm stealing the description from the Firefly/Serenity Group's page:
Join us at Mystic Celt in the heart of Wrigleyville for a night of fun! The Monday special at Mystic Celt is half-price appetizers! Be sure to join the Mystic Celt email list as they sometimes send out coupons! Free refills are limited to 3.
We usually have around 40-60 attendees from many local meetups. There's a great variety of people attending and things to do. The event starts at 6:30pm (although some people get there earlier) and tends to last until the wee hours of the morning. Feel free to come late or leave early - it's all good! We always have games to play. And there's always fun conversation, good food & yummy drinks!
Please, please, please try to bring cash to make it easy on the servers! And don't forget to tip! We love this place and want them to love us back.
We sometimes have giveaways and sometimes we'll do demonstrations or presentations of things. If you want to do a demonstration, please let me know.
