Halloween Party- Mashups and Crossovers! NO COVER + $500 Costume Contest Prize

Halloween Party!

We've established a venue, gang- we're going to be at Headquarters Beercade in Lakeview for this Halloween! For those of you who don't know, check out their website for the full details, but here's a brief rundown about this excellent venue right off the Diversey Brown Line stop:

Headquarters Beercade houses 37 vintage arcade games, FREE to play, an enormous rotating craft beer list (they have some pumpkin ale and some cider on hand, just in time for Halloween), signature cocktails, and a great dance floor. It's a unique, fun venue, and we cannot wait to take the party here!

Our theme this Halloween is Mashups and Crossovers! Bust out your best Zombie Superman, your Pee-Wee Herman Munster, or your Batmanatee and Robin Thicke. Mix up two costume ideas, cross-over two different worlds, have fun! Our past parties have been packed and terrific, and we can't wait to get this one going. If you arrive early in the evening, you'll find us congregating near the front of the bar in a separate area, and we will very quickly take over the whole bar.

Oh, yeah, and there will be a costume contest, as per usual- we're teaming up with Headquarters, and there will be a $500 CASH PRIZE for the best costume, so get to work, folks!

NO COVER, great drinks, lots to do, lots of folks to meet and costumes to love.

More details to follow as we get things solidified, and please, if you're part of another meetup, please feel free to cross-post, so we can have a ton of friendly faces there.

See you there!

    Im really concerned about space in this place, is it a stadium? We arr 549 only on meetup groups without counting with any other soul who'd like to spend their weekend there. Am I worrying too much about this?

    October 25, 2013

    • Tony

      You're worrying too much. The place can accommodate a ton more than us, and not all who RSVP to a given meetup actually show.

      October 25, 2013

  • Tony

    I've invited a number of other groups. It's actually 549 total RSVPs.

    Question-at the Halloween party with all of the free videgames, will that include unlimited continues? I could just play X-Men and Street Fighter the whole night?

    September 21, 2013

    • Derrick S.

      yes, all arcade and pinball games are free to play. with unlimited continues. just press start, and let the games begin.

      September 21, 2013

    • Jason D

      After a while though, you should let someone else play. Sharing is caring, as a wise man once taught me.
