Halloween Parties for Chicago’s Geeks & Nerds (and geeky families too!)

Chicago has one of the most vibrant geek/nerd communities in the U.S. and you don’t have to look far to find fun events where you can “get your geek on.”

With that in mind, and knowing that Halloween is one of those holidays that really bring out the kid in all of us, here are some fun events and parties that Chicago’s geeks, nerds and their “norm” friends can enjoy! (With one thrown in for my geeky peeps in the suburbs!):


CHICAGO LOOT DROP SHAMBLERS’ BALL: I’ve written about this super-cool event before. It’s less than a week away and tickets are STILL AVAILABLE but don’t wait until the last minute! All proceeds go to the Child’s Play Charity which benefits the Comer Children’s Hospital.


(More events after the jump!)


CHALLENGERS COMICS + CONVERSATION: HALLOWEEN 2014 – RIVIVALWEEN!: Challengers invites you to the first gathering of the Secret Panel!

Come to the first Secret Panel gathering for your chance to obtain all 3 Keys of our first release Image Comics’ Revival! Meet Revival creators Mike Norton, Tim Seeley, and cover artist / Key #1 Jenny Frison.

We will have the limited edition Secret Panel screenprints by Jenny Frison, Angela An, and Randy Ortiz. Those who obtain all 3 keys will be fully initiated and receive an exclusive item.

Snacks to be provided by Upton’s Naturals

This will also be the official CHALLENGERS Comics + Conversation Halloween party so costumes are requested and prizes will be given out! Secret Panel will be giving prizes to the best Revival themed costume. Party starts at 8pm. 21+ event.



BABY LOVES DISCO: It’s the original family dance party! The event is a costume party for parents and kids, giving young kids a chance to experience the dance club atmosphere in a family-friendly environment. There will be free healthy snacks and drinks for the kids and a cash bar for the adults.

Baby Loves Disco is the best time you will have with your little ones and they are back in Chitown with a bang at the Lincoln Hall! Come shake those booties in costume at Boo Baby Boo! on 10/25/15 from 12-2:30 PM.

Get out those snazzy costumes for our dance contests, shake those booties, do some crafty things, grab a tattoo, chill out and more. Real Music for real parents, freeze dance, “Simon Says” and more with a real DJ and real MC. So much fun in one place, the little one(s) will be zonked upon leaving (but don’t call us to babysit if that’s not the case!).

Lincoln Hall is the place to be. Forget the mall, museum or movie, Come play with us! Visit www.babylovesdisco.com/events for more info and to purchase tickets.
And finally comes one of my fave suburban Halloween events, one that my homies from the Acme Design Co. are involved in putting together:
NIGHTMARE ON CHICAGO STREET: The Apocalypse is upon us…. Nightmare on Chicago Street will be your only hope to survive the UnDead again this year!


We have survived the last three years, but somehow, someway a few of the undead keep on coming back. Our top researchers and scientists have been working hard to keep us up to date about the coming annihilation which they believe will happen October 25th, 2014.

Again, your only hope to survive and to keep the human race alive is to be in the safe zone!

Nightmare on Chicago Street
Chicago Street (Douglas to Villa)
Elgin, Illinois 60120
Saturday, Oct. 25th
