Chicago may be 700 miles from Scranton, but that hasn’t stopped Dunder Mifflin from opening its latest branch in Lincoln Park barcade Replay. The Office-themed pop-up runs now through August 20, where you can drink themed cocktails like Scotch and Splenda with life-size cutouts of cast members while taking part in themed events like Office trivia, karaoke and even a version of the show’s notorious Dundie awards.
Despite only being open for one weekend so far, Replay owner Mark Kwiatkowski says it’s already one of the bar’s most popular pop-ups (with lines to get in Friday and Saturday nights over opening weekend.) And the crowd, according to Kwiatkowski, is just as mischievous as some of the characters from the show.
Replicating Jim’s famous prank of hiding Dwight’s stapler in Jell-O, Kwiatkowski says he created 15 Jell-O molds containing various office supplies like staplers and pencils, all of which were destroyed on opening night. Meanwhile, Dwight’s glued-down “assistant to the regional manager” name plate was ripped off its desk.
