Hal­loween Spooktac-Q-Lar

Call­ing all gals, gays, ghouls, theys, mis­ters, and mys­ter­ies who are 21-years-old and up: we invite you to join us for an enchant­ed evening of every­thing you love about Hal­loween host­ed by your favorite (vac­ci­nat­ed) drag queen, Angel Lebare!

I’m an ally, can I come? Of course, dear straight, cis­gen­der ally — don’t wor­ry, we won’t bite! Come cel­e­brate the night with us and sup­port the LGBTQ+ Community.

Hocus Pocus View­ing Par­ty — Fea­tur­ing spe­cial per­for­mances by Angel Lebare, caramel apples, pop­corn-with-top­pings bar, and web-topped hot cocoa.

Cos­tume Con­test — Come dressed as you like: be it a 15th-cen­tu­ry gen­der-bend­ing Count­ess Drac­u­la, a dap­per 20s gen­tlethem, or your favorite thrift­ed Fall sweater. Enter in our cos­tume con­test for a chance to win $50 and more good­ies from beyond.

Tarot & Rune Read­ings by Axel Aita - Are you look­ing for answers, direc­tion, or val­i­da­tion from the uni­verse that you’re on the right path? Let queer witch heal­er Axel Aita guide you towards dis­cov­er­ing your inner-truth and end­less power.

Wicked Games — Pump­kin head toss, Fear Pong, Just Dance (Till You Drop), and more!

Trick-Or-Treat Raf­fle - Hold onto your can­dy bags as you trek around the activ­i­ties to col­lect raf­fle tick­ets and increase your chances of win­ning a bas­ket to die for.

Help Young Peo­ple Not Be Afraid to Be Who They Are - All pro­ceeds, includ­ing the cov­er charges and any pur­chas­es made will direct­ly ben­e­fit the LGBTQ+ Cen­ter and its pro­grams which sup­port queer youth across the North­west Sub­urbs of Chicago.

  • Two potion tick­ets for deli­cious elixirs pro­vid­ed by More Brew­ing Company
