Join us as we celebrate the cinematic masterpieces that are John Hughes movies.
Buck, Ferris, Bender, Samantha; Iconic misfits that helped define a generation. We here at McSweeney’s are proud to call ourselves a gang of misfits, brought together in the name of this crazy thing called independent publishing.
It only seemed fitting that our next Social Hour would celebrate all things John Hughes. He understands us, we understand him. Join us as we screen clips from his most beloved films and spin the tracks that will transport you to Chicago's suburbs in 1984. There might even be a cake with 16 candles.
A brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal.
In addition to admittance to the greatest cocktail hour ever imagined, each ticket includes 1 John Hughes themed button & a raffle ticket.
