Enjoy lunch and a trip down Fury Road. The tea at the Geek Bar will start earlier than previous months, running from noon to 3 on May 16. Some may call it lunch. Later risers may call it brunch. A group will follow it up with a stroll along Navy Pier and a viewing of Mad Max Fury Road.
Geek Bar will be serving special-tea cocktails and offering 10% off for cosplayers! The bar is located at 1941 W North Avenue in Chicago, IL. The event is free and open to all ages.
At 4pm on the 16th, steamfolk / dieselpunk / postapocalyptians will gather at the fountain at the east end of Navy Pier, where we’ll take a right proper and short perambulation on a long pier. There will be plenty of good photo ops and drinks/bites to eat along the way. Around 7, we’ll march on back down the pier to the River East Theatre a few blocks away for the show.
Navy Pier has (albeit pricey) parking, there is street parking if you’re lucky, and it’s easily accessible via CTA.
You’ll need to leave the weapons, pikes, props, and blades at home, but feel free to dress yourself up like a proper maniac.
Come, drink some tea, have some vittles, and then let’s have fun storming the castle!
