This week’s crawl is going to be Colossal – pun intended.


Dinner at Hard Times

Hard Times is a staple of the West Bank – one of our favorite cafes and one that embodies the spirit of the West Bank community. Amazing food, damn fine coffee, and freshly baked treats. Join us there for dinner before we head out for the rest of the crawl!

Hard Times

1821 Riverside Ave



Colossal at Mixed Blood Theatre

Next, join us at the historic Mixed Blood Theatre for the acclaimed show Colossal!

From the site: COLOSSAL is an epic event that simultaneously celebrates and attacks our nation’s most popular form of theater: football.

You don’t want to miss it.

Mixed Blood Theatre

1501 S. 4th St



Last but not least, join us for a nightcap after the show at Acadia Cafe – where  you will find an awesome selection of beers on tap (and root beer too.)  NO CRAP ON TAP!

Acadia Cafe

329 Cedar Ave



Parking is easily available in several lots next to all venues of the crawl. Lot A across from Mixed Blood, Lot B beside Acadia, and Lot C next to Hard Times Cafe. Even better – ditch your car and take the Green Line light rail or the Blue Line – both stop within easy walking distance of all destinations.


Hard Times is open all evening, Colossal showtime is at 7:30pm and Acadia is open until 1am.
