At Netherworld on Monday, October 22, you have two options. You can either party like you're running for your life from teeming hordes of ravenous undead, or you can pretend that you're one of the shuffling masses yourself. To be honest, you can really just enjoy the night however you like, but you now know the theme: yes, it's all about zombies.
At The Dead Will Walk The Valley, the Brunswick Street venue will be making sure that's the case — within the confines of its arcade bar, at least. Kicking off at 6.30pm, there'll be zombie virtual reality games, zombie pinball, zombie RPGs and zombie board games, plus zombies just generally roaming around. And yes, dressing up and muttering "braaaaaaaaains" is heartily encouraged.
You'll be able to get your gory makeup done onsite and take a stint of zombie avoidance training, too, while The Hellmouth Diner will be cooking up a themed menu. Drinks-wise, Netherworld will whip up an appropriate cocktail list — and serve up White Lies Brewing's one-off zombie fightin' beer.
Entry will set you back $15 per person, and you'll need a ticket as the bar won't be open to the public otherwise. As part of the price, you'll also nab a schooner of beer, five tokens and a zombie enamel pin.
