Hang out at the GWAR Halloween Pop-Up Bar
From the folks behind the Game of Thrones and Stranger Things Pop-Up Bars, comes a Halloween GWAR Pop-Up Bar! Description from Washingtonian: The Gwar “retrospective” will display stage backdrops and costumes old and new, including that of Oderus Urungus (the character of Gwar frontman David Brockie, who died in 2014). Also expect to find a mobile of Gwar’s interplanetary journey and the original 20-foot World Maggot, famously seen in ’90s cult classic movie Empire Records. The Drink Company team has created a “hall of blood” made of mirrors and red light. They’ll also have a “blood suit” that people can take pictures in. “When you look at them kill people on stage, it’s the thing that they rip off and all the blood comes out of,” Brown explains. Gwar was founded by art students at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond in 1984, so their appeal is visual as much as it about the music. “There are just so many cool little elements that if you are a Gwar fan, you’re going to say, ‘Holy crap,'” Brown says. “And if you’re not a Gwar fan, I think you’re going to be pretty amazed at what they’ve created.” The themed drinks promise to be just as outrageous as Gwar. The bar will have a limited edition Oderus Eternal tiki mug for sale. Gwar will also have merchandise for sale onsite for anyone who wants to pick up a T-shirt, albums, and other memorabilia.

Use the Howard University exit when coming out of the station. The pop up bars at Eat the Rich are famous for their long lines. I'm hoping that it won't be so bad at 5:00 on a Sunday. That being said, I will get in line around 3:30 and post updates about the line to get in. If it's too bad, we will try again on a later date. To find the group, look for the guy wearing the GEEK cap. If you have trouble finding group, feel free to contact me with a private message through either the Meetup or Facebook App. Both apps notify me when I get a PM, but neither Facebook and Meetup notify me when someone posts on the event page.
