March 15th, 7:00 pm: An Unnameable Night of Lovecraftian Delights

An Unnameable Night of Lovecraftian Delights

Join us for an evening celebrating the master of Eldritch terror – Howard Philips Lovecraft, on Thursday, March 15 to mark the 71st anniversary of his passing into the realm of the elder gods. Together, we shall descend into a realm of madness as works by Lovecraft and in honor of him are read. We will raise a toast with complimentary beers from Miskatonic Brewing Company (for those of us who have reached the antiquarian age of 21).

Dress to impress! Don your fanciest garb to set the atmosphere! Victorian/steampunk outfits encouraged–our friends from Windy City Steam Collective will be helping us distribute prizes to our finest dressed guests!

Following the reading, we shall carry the procession to DMen Tap, where we will slake our thirst with more delicious Miskatonic brews and feast on a Lovecraft-inspired menu, and the Bucket O’Blood staff will spin blasphemous music of an arcane and obscene nature.

Guaranteed to be an INDESCRIBABLE evening!
