Hello my dear horror loving fiends.
If anyone has noticed that the blog has been a little lackluster lately, I have a great excuse, I swear!
For those of you who don’t know, over a month ago I was contacted about co-hosting a horror trivia night at Chicago’s Logan Theatre.
I jumped at the opportunity to connect with local horror fans and throw crazy questions at them all while promoting the blog as well.
I have spent a lot of time and heart and soul into this night and I’m happy to say it was a success!
The lounge was packed and we had amazing, knowledgeable people come out to show off their horror love and support the event.
I wanted to take this time to thank everyone involved who helped make our night a big hit.
Firstly, I would like to thank the Logan Theatre for taking a chance on unknown kids.
My partners Justine and Steve have never hosted a trivia night before and neither have I so I think we did a great job running things smoothly and making sure everyone had fun.
Logan Theatre provided us with gift cards to give to our second place winners.
Our other sponsors are incredible local establishments who gave us great prizes to give away as well.
Stage 773 and Brad, the co-founder and president of Cowardly Scarecrow Theatre Company gave us tickets for Musical of the Living Dead!
Voted Chicago’s BEST MUSICAL (The Chicago Reader), Musical of the Living Dead takes audiences on a rip-roaring journey beyond the grave with its satirical send-ups of classic zombie films and musical theater. The curtain opens on 10 survivors of a recent zombie apocalypse, trapped in a farmhouse and willing to try anything to escape. The show gleefully fulfills horror-film conventions in creating the melee of the zombie apocalypse as we watch the cast of memorable characters – all brought together seeking refuge from a ravenous horde of brain-eating (and dancing) zombies.
If you are interested in getting tickets for yourself, here is the information below.

Uncharted Books gave us gift certificates that went to all the third place winners.
Uncharted Books sell used literature and nonfiction, from vintage to almost new.
They encourage browsing, loitering, chit-chatting, socializing, drinking, eating, writing, working, hanging out, and staying in.
Uncharted Books is about the timelessness of stories. A good story persists no matter the medium, the form, or the age. We believe that stories are resilient, and that the words on the page count for more than the type of paper they’re printed on or the condition of the dust jacket.

Gorilla Tango Theatre showed their support by giving us tickets to their sexy show, Boobs of the Dead.
Boobs of the Dead: A Walking Dead Burlesque
The Sheriff awakes to find that a virus has taken over the world and has transformed the majority of Chicago into undead zombie burlesque dancers. Undeterred by this gruesome turn of events, Sheriff suits up, snags a sexy mount, and rides off in search of other survivors. Will Sheriff find Wife Lady before she bags Best Friend? Will Old Dude’s Winnebago run out of gas at the exact. wrong. moment? Will Southern Guy’s crossbow have enough endless bolts to get them all to the Chicago CDC? The answers to all these questions and more await you in this parody of the popular Walking Dead television series.
Boobs of the Dead: The apocalypse has never been hotter.
We added a flash round (hehe) for these tickets so five lucky individuals have a spot to see this show.
If would like to see this show for yourself, here is the ticket information below.

And thanks to Busy Beaver Buttons for making me these awesome GLOW IN THE DARK buttons for the blog.
Thank you to everyone who came out and all our sponsers and supporters for this event. I had a memorable night and met a lot of fun people!
Here’s hoping we get another chance to do this again next year!
