Experience nerd delight! Hang with the bellydancing Wookiee, firespinning superheroes, and sword-wielding villains for fire, cosplay, and wonder in an intimate speakeasy - every other month, we pay tribute to fandoms from X-Men to Star Wars, Doctor Who to Silent Hill, Super Mario Bros to Sandman.
After the show: Enjoy a specialty cocktail, get a photo to take home, and meet the performers!

"Never seen a Wookiee bellydance? This can be remedied." - MSN
Voted "Best Dance Troupe" (runner up) by the Chicago Reader, Raks Geek is the premiere bellydance, flow arts, and fire performance company by geeks for geeks - they broke the internet's collective brain with a viral video of a Wookiee bellydancing to a four-piece Klingon band. Raks Geek is based in Chicago, but they've made waves nationally and internationally on MSN, The Daily Mail, and WGN-TV through their commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and themes from nerd culture.
"Absolutely electric from the moment they took the stage." - Third Coast Review
