The pH Comedy Theater presents the sixth annual Chicago Zombie Pub Crawl on Saturday, April 20 from 2:30 – 9 p.m. The hugely popular event once again takes place in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. Once the zombies are registered at The pH Comedy Theater (1515 W. Berwyn), the pub crawl begins with pH Productions sending groups of zombies up and down Clark Street, much to the delight and horror of unsuspecting people. Zombie hordes will be led on multiple routes to the many participating bars and enjoy specially priced cocktails and themed drinks.
Early registration began Friday, March 1 and costs $20. This will be available only via the pH Productions Facebook Page using the “Get Tickets” tab. Advanced registration begins Wednesday, March 20 with $25 tickets and will be available at www.chicagozombiepubcrawl.com. On the day of the crawl, walk up purchases will be $30. Registration includes an event cup, an official Chicago Zombie Pub Crawl T-Shirt, and a free year subscription to Time Out Chicago, the crawl’s media sponsor. The event is an annual fundraiser for pH Productions, the not-for-profit Chicago comedy theater company currently based in its brand new home, The pH Comedy Theater (1515 W. Berwyn Ave).
Since the first Chicago Zombie Pub Crawl (CZPC) in 2008, this event has become one of Chicago’s most highly anticipated spring events. CZPC is based on other successful Zombie Pub Crawls around the United States, specifically Minneapolis. The first CZPC had more than 400 zombies roaming in and out of the most popular bars in Andersonville and grew to about 700 four years later. 2013 promises to resurrect even more zombies as the company is adding more stops on the roster. Regular pub crawl participants like Mary’s Rec Room, Mary’s Attic, Simon’s Tavern, and @mosphere (plus several others) are going to be part of the fun once again this year. There will also be food trucks along the way, as well as other great ways local businesses are pitching in. CZPC will have photo contests with a prize for the winners. For the current list of participating bars (This list will continue to be updated as we near the event) and to get tips on being a zombie in the sixth annual CZPC, visit www.chicagozombiepubcrawl.com.
The grounds have been infected by a nearby industrial accident. Zombies are swarming in search of BRAINS. You must gather your friends, family, co-workers or anyone else you feel is brave enough to challenge the 5K Zombie Infested Obstacle Course: PANDEMIC. (You also may want to bring someone expendable to use as bait to slow down and confuse our Zombies – maybe that guy from Finance that no one likes.)
The Wisconsin Zombie Mud Run (WZMR) is your chance to prepare for the apocalypse in this thrilling endurance race for your life that pits you against PANDEMIC (obstacle course) and our ZOMBIE HORDE. Face your FEARS and try to survive the PANDEMIC… where you’re either quick, or you’re dead!
Your mission: successfully navigate the 5K course and all 13 obstacles, while attempting to avoid the multitude of zombies and losing all 3 of your life lines. Crossing the finish line with at least 1 life line intact is all that stands between you and future greatness.

ChicagoHorror.com has received a set of Admit 2 Passes for a special advanced screening of Warm Bodies (in theaters February 1st, 2013). For your chance to see it, go to http://www.gofobo.com/rsvp and enter the code MEETUPK7ZV
A funny new twist on a classic love story, WARM BODIES is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human – setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.

From Kitty Zombie:
Greetings all! Well, it’s that time of year again, and luckily it’s cold enough to do it this year! We may take a stroll to the Christmas Market for a pic in front of the giant tree again this year.
Remember, please keep it low on the blood. Blood on the ice may LOOK cool, but we want to keep the city happy. So far, they like us Zombies during the Holidays better than the drunk, fighting Santas that come every year. LOL!
We are here to have fun and celebrate two awesome things, Zombies and Xmas!
Just a note, this is the Ice Rink under the Bean.
Here is more info on the Rink Itself, including skate rental fees: http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dca/supp_info/ice_skating_at_themccormicktribuneicerink.html
We will start around 2:30pm on Sunday, and skate for a few hours. Say, untill 5:30ish. Then head over to the Christmas Market for pics, food, etc etc.
