Darkside V @ Emporium Wicker Park

  • Emporium Arcade Bar 1366 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60622 United States (map)

Episode V: The Emporium Strikes Back! Join us at Emporium Arcade Bar for our 5TH ANNIVERSARY, celebrating the dark goodness paired with vintage arcade games.

It's February. It's cold. It's a Sunday. Chances are you have no excuse not to come out and celebrate with us and explore the darker side of craft beer.

This year we're upping the ante and making this the biggest Darkside yet. We're working closer than ever with Emporium to craft a beer list worthy of the occasion. Tickets will include a bag of game tokens and 8 samples (about 40 oz) of the beers available. We'll have things broken up between two bars and two types of sample tickets. 6 Main Bar Samples and 2 Specialty Bar Samples. You have the option to purchase full pours of any of your favorites as well.

Tickets will be $30 online in advance and $40 at the door (if we don't sell out.)

More info to be released as it becomes available.
