Hear that?? That is the sound of excited, jumping-up-and-down screaming, dear Monsters, because this is a dream come true for us! On Sunday, May 17th, we are hosting a pop-up shop at our favorite place for big kids to hang: Headquarters Beercade! At Headquarters (or, HQ, as the cool kids are callin’ it), patrons 21+ and over can enjoy a brew from their insanely extensive craft beer collection or sip a handcrafted cocktail from their retro-themed drink list (ummm… The Flux Capacitor, anyone??), all while mingling and playing video games from their impressive gallery of arcade and pinball machines. And their food. THEIR FOOD! My personal favorite is their take on chicken and waffles, which you can view here. Get a tissue ready, because you’re about to get hit with a drool fest.
Not only is the location ridiculously fun for adults, but it is fitting for this particular Snort Monster pop-up shop, as we’ll be featuring our newly launched Snort Invaders t-shirt litter AND our upcoming, soon-to-be launched Snortified ‘Tron‘ litter! SNORT YEAH!
We love that Headquarters offers a place for Chicagoland grownups to be kids again by reliving classic arcade games in the way they were meant to be enjoyed. On that same point of view, with our new tee designs that give a Snortastic spin on classic arcade games, we thought that the playful Headquarters venue would be a perfect fit to celebrate the new releases.
As if we can’t be more thrilled, all t-shirt and bar proceeds will benefit the Chicago French Bulldog Rescue! The CFBR is very near and dear to our hearts, as they were the ones responsible for rescuing our Snorty bundle of joy in the form of Ariel the Frenchie when we adopted her in July 2013. If you’re at all curious about adopting a Frenchie, a representative will be there to chat all things Frenchie with you while you enjoy that delicious drink in your hand.
Also, we know our past pop-up shops have been in dog-friendly venues, but for this event, your Snort Monsters will have to stay at home. We know it’s a bummer, but you’ll have plenty of exciting new arcade scents to share with them when you come home!
SNORT ON, bring all of your friends, and come play with us on May 17th!
