(Few notes: this is not the Red Lion Pub in Lincoln Square; it’s a totally different Red Lion Pub. And we are encouraging people to make a suggested donation to cover our organizing/hosting costs, and you’re responsible for your own food, tax and gratuity. Since we’re asking members to RSVP/pay their fee via Eventbrite page. But we think you’ll agree – you get quite a bit for your buck)
The Chicago Doctor Who Meetup frequently partners with others to provide Doctor Who fans a chance to meet, socialize, and watch Doctor Who. We’re very happy that the Red Lion Pub in Lincoln Park has generously offered to host a live viewing of the Series 9 Premiere…in glorious High Definition.
Imagine watching the series premiere in a private room of an English Pub, complete with private server and a chance to enjoy Doctor Who in glorious High Definition. We can, and so we worked with Red Lion for a very special premiere party, and are grateful they’re willing to welcome us! (For more information, please check out http://www.redlionchicago.com)
Since this is an exclusive event, we are charging a very small fee – this will help offset the costs of organization, and will be applied towards our Meetup hosting fee. Also, you are responsible for purchasing your own food, as well as tax and gratuity, but the Red Lion has assured us their full menu will be available. If this works, we may have another venue for possible future screens, so let’s show the Lincoln Park Red Lion that we’re more than happy to welcome them as part of the Chicago Doctor Who Meetup family!
In Love and Warcraft By Madhuri Shekar directed by Tlaloc Rivas a Chicago premiere production August 13 through September 20, 2015 Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm; Sundays at 6pm
Evie Malone—gamer girl, college senior and confirmed virgin—has it all figured out. Not only does she command a top-ranked guild in Warcraft with her online boyfriend, she also makes a little cash on the side writing love letters for people who’ve screwed up their relationships. Love is like Warcraft, after all. It’s all about strategies, game plans, and not taking stupid risks. But no amount of gaming expertise can help her out when she’s next to a handsome, non-virtual, boyfriend, who is ready to rock all of her worlds.
Approximate running time: Ninety-five minutes with no intermission Note: Saturday, September 5 will be an understudy performance
