Geppi’s Entertainment Museum Announces Zombie Gras 4




Posted on 1/24/2014

Fourth Annual Festival of All Things Zombie, with Pub Crawl.

[Baltimore, Maryland] Janaury 23, 2014 – You could call it “staggering,” because that’s precisely what many of the attendees will be doing. Geppi’s Entertainment Museum (GEM) will kick off its fourth annual Zombie Gras festivities on Saturday, March 29, 2014.

The event has turned into one of the – if not the – biggest days of the year at GEM, as make-up artists, vendors, cosplayers (those who come in costume) and pop culture enthusiasts of all ages fill the museum’s halls and galleries. Zombie fans spanning the eras from George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead to Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead (and everything in between) will be on hand.

Zombie Gras starts at 10 AM as the living and the undead gather at GEM. From then until 6 PM participants 21 years old and over will be able to get wrist bands entitling them to specials at participating bars and restaurants for the now-traditional zombie pub crawl.

“The level of participation continues to grow, as does the enthusiasm of the participants,” said Melissa Bowersox, President of Geppi’s Entertainment Museum. “From the excited kids (and adults) getting their faces painted as zombies, to the phenomenal cosplayers, to the everyday fans, we’ve seen an incredibly positive reaction to the first three years of Zombie Gras.”

Zombies in costume will be welcomed to GEM free of charge, but the living must pay $10 admission and to receive a wrist band. Establishments participating in the crawl include Pickles Pub, Sliders Bar & Grille, Frank & Nic's West End Grille, Pratt Street Ale House, Tir Na Nog, and Dick's Last Resort.

“We’re so glad to see the strong participation of so many of Baltimore’s most popular eateries,” Bowersox said. “Zombie Gras keeps growing because it has clearly had the support of the surrounding community and businesses.”

In addition to all the zombie-related activity, attendees will be able to take in the other exhibits at GEM, including the acclaimed Milestones: African Americans in Comics, Pop Culture and Beyond, which launched December 13, 2013 and is scheduled to run through April 2014.

All day metered parking will be available in the North Warehouse Lot of Camden Yards (right outside the museum), and there is also parking at the Hilton Hotel and other nearby facilities. GEM is accessible via MARC Train, Light Rail, MTA Buses and Charm City Circulator.
