Hideout Trivia hosted by Paul Durica: Candyman Edition

Tuesday, August 17

While we were sheltered in place over the winter, teacher, writer, and public historian Paul Durica held trivia games with the Hideout over Zoom as part of their Rec Room series with Soup and Bread, which raised thousands of dollars for local food pantries thanks to the generous community.

With the help of the Chicago History Museum and The Newberry Library, Paul is bringing trivia to the Hideout patio every third Tuesday of the month! Staff members from CHM and the National Public Housing Museum will serve as quizmasters for a round of questions on the history of public housing in Chicago, the Cabrini-Green Homes, and the legend of Candyman in support of the new film Candyman, which opens nationwide on August 27.  The evening includes performances by emcee, poet, and former Cabrini resident PHENOM. Tickets are priced on a sliding scale, and all proceeds benefit Nita’s Love Train.

21+. Please arrive with your e-ticket ready on your phone at full brightness for door staff to scan. Door staff will also check ID and vaccination card. Please have these ready when you arrive.

Seating is available for all guests, but we do not reserve tables. Please seat yourself upon entry.

Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Please review your order carefully before confirming.
