Featuring Shrek trivia nights!
When Replay Lincoln Park launches a new pop-up you know it means business. After the success of previous pop-ups like Moe’s Tavern, Schitt Happens, and A Very Harry Winter, the beloved vintage video games bar is back with another of its pop-culture-themed pop-ups to send fans into overdrive. This time around it is none other than a Shrek-themed bar that has emerged at 2833 N. Sheffield Avenue.
Get Shreked, as it is officially called, offers fans of the DreamWorks classic the chance to drink in a certain ogre’s cozy swamp. According to the Replay Lincoln Park website, there will be dragons, donkeys, and waffles as well as an elegant list of Shrek-inspired cocktails fit for even the most finicky Farquaad.
The Get Shreked pop-up was introduced in 2020 but cut short when the pandemic started. Now it has returned in its full glory and will run for just under one month through to Sunday, April 3.
In addition to a range of Shrek-themed food and drink, there will be themed trivia nights, custom artwork, and plenty of photo opportunities for fans to grab some snaps with their favorite scenes and characters. There will also be a Swamptastic St. Patrick’s Day celebration featuring live DJ sets from noon until 3 am on March 12 and a donkey meet-and-greet with a real miniature donkey from 7-9 pm on Saturday, March 26.
For those proud Shrek fans who fancy themselves experts on everybody’s favorite ogre, trivia nights on Thursdays at 7 pm offer the fans the chance to show off their knowledge and be in with a shot of taking home $100 cash.
Located in Lincoln Park at 2833 N. Sheffield Avenue, Replay’s Get Shreked pop-up is open until 2 am every day and 3 am on Saturdays. Reservations are not required but advance tickets are available via the Replay Lincoln Park website. The Shrek pop-up is for people 21 and over. Masks nor proof of vaccination are no longer needed at Replay Lincoln Park.
