Doctor Who Viewing Party At Red Lion – UNDER THE LAKE

624We’ve partnered with the Chicago Doctor Who Meetup for weekly viewing parties of Doctor Who Series 9 at the Red Lion Pub in Lincoln Park.

This Saturday, October 3rd, we’ll be viewing Under the Lake, the third episode in Series 9. Here’s the official synopsis from the BBC:

***When an underwater base comes under attack, the Doctor and Clara must save the frightened crew and defeat an impossible threat. But what is behind these terrifying events? And can they really be haunted by ghosts? ** *

We will be meeting in the front dining room, immediately behind you as you enter the pub. We will have a dedicated server, and all food/beverage items ordered through that server will cover room costs. As always, you are responsible for your own food, tax and gratuity.

Your best bet for travel is public transportation – The Red Lion is a short walk east of the Fullerton Brown/Red Line stop, and you can check out the CTA’s website for more precise travel information. Street and paid parking are available – Parkopedia provides a great map for travel planning.

Space is limited, so please RSVP – looking forward to seeing you!

We’ve experimented with hosting our annual Halloween party in a public bar and as a private event in a restaurant. Building on each year’s feedback about what you’ve loved and what you haven’t, we’re trying something new to keep Nerd-O-Ween an excellent and inexpensive event that brings the local nerd community together.

This year, we’re going DIY-style and taking over our favorite community black box theater at Cards Against Humanity!

As always, Nerd-O-Ween will feature our popular costume contest, with prizes for Most Original, Best Mashup, and Most Authentic Costumes. The event is 21+. Admission is $10, which includes a raffle ticket for fabulous prizes. We’ll be providing snacks and nonalcoholic beverages while they last–in the spirit of nerd community, please feel free to BYO favorite treats or adult beverage to share!

Costumes aren’t required—just your awesome nerdy self—but we do love it when people attend in costume, and historically the majority of attendees have done so. Get creative, get nerdy, and get ready for new friends to get your references!
