Join us at Mystic Celt ( in the heart of Wrigleyville for a night of fun! The Tuesday special at Mystic Celt is $5 burgers! Be sure to join the Mystic Celt email list as they sometimes send out coupons! Please try to bring cash to make the server's life easier! Also, free refills are limited to 3.

There are usually 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! There are always games to play. And there's always fun conversation, good food & yummy drinks!

It has come to my attention that, as a group, we have been extremely bad tippers. Some nights as low as 7% even. Their servers loathe serving us because of how our nights leave them. Mystic Celt provides us with free space to come and enjoy games and each other's company, and if we expect to continue to enjoy such courtesy, we need to ensure that their servers are well-treated. Also, it's just the right thing to do.

As such, I've agreed to two new stipulations when we are at Mystic Celt:
1) An automatic 18% gratuity will be added to all checks. If you wish to tip above and beyond this amount, you are welcome and encouraged to do so.
2) After a reasonable amount of time, refills will be available at the bar out front instead of at your table so that the server can pick up some additional tips from other customers as well. Since we sit around for many hours more than a normal customer, it would take away from the servers to take additional tables later in the night if all they were doing was bringing us refills with no additional purchases. If you want additional food after the server is cut from our section, you can let the bartenders know this as well.
