A Pokémon Pop-Up Is Coming to New York This November
Gotta taste ‘em all!
Looking for a chance to step into the Pokémon universe? Then you’d best head to New York.
Over a series of Sundays in November, immersive experience company Viral Ventures and Williamsburg biergarten Radegast Hall will host a Pokémon-themed pop-up bar complete with Pokémon burgers, themed drinks, and contests, Delish reports. (Is it tied to the release of Pokemon: Sword and Shield, or is it just another nostalgia-fueled cash grab? The world may never know.)
“ALL TICKETS INCLUDE A POKEMON INSPIRED BURGER, ONE THEMED DRINK AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO WIN LOTS OF PRIZES!” the event description reads.
“DRINK OPTIONS: A POKEMON INSPIRED COCKTAIL, BEER, WINE, OR NON-ALCOHOLIC OPTION (NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINK PURCHASES GET EXTRA DRINK)”
Viral Ventures calls the event an “experiental version of the game” complete with DJs and opportunities for prizes, including trivia and a costume contest. Tickets are available through Eventbrite for $55, but I’m just gonna let you know now, you should account for at least $11 in fees.
Depending on the day and time you’d like to attend, tickets are at least available for the next few weeks. For example, ticket sales for the 4-6 slot on November 3 are open until July 19, while November 24’s 1:30-3:30 slot’s sales last until September 13. That is, of course, assuming everything doesn’t sell out, being tickets are limited.
