Saturday, July 26th- come meet Sven from 1 to 3 pm at the branch of the Taphouse Grill- at 1472 Market Street in Des Plaines! It’ll be a great place to enjoy some terrific food (including some Sven specials!), and a variety of beers on tap, while getting an autograph and taking a photo with the nation’s new favorite Saturday night sensation! It’ll be a fun event in our summer appearance tour, so come visit- and plan on having lunch!
And, we’re pleased to announce- Svengoolie (Rich Koz) will be hosting a live stage show featuring Robert Englund wearing his Freddy Krueger make-up for the final time. This event, Friday Night Frights Live, will be held at Flashback Weekend on Friday August 8, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare. The show will also feature additional celebrity guests and surprises. The evening will be in the format of a late night talk show with Svengoolie as the talk show host. Admission to this event is exclusive to those purchasing the Robert Englund Freddy Krueger make up photo-op package through Flashback Weekend. All net proceeds from this go to the Midway Drive in Digital Projector Fund so you’ll get a photo with Robert in the Freddy makeup, see a live stage show with Svengoolie hosting and help out a great cause! For tickets or more information please visit www.flashbackweekend.com or call 847-647-3124.
Additional appearance bookings are already being scheduled- through the Halloween season and beyond- and, we hope to have an update about the original Sven coffin going into the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago this October- so, check back here for further news!
