Get ready, Chicago! Slate’s Political Gabfest is making its way to your city this fall. Join Emily Bazelon of the New York Times Magazine, John Dickerson of Face the Nation, and David Plotz of Atlas Obscura at Merle Reskin Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 25 for a mix of comedic banter and in-depth analysis on the latest political news and current events. A live Q-and-A session will follow immediately after the show.

Update: VIP tickets are sold out. For a very limited number of fans, we will also host a pre-show cocktail hour with the hosts from 6–7 p.m. Those who purchase the ticket package will receive one complimentary drink with the hosts beforehand and select seating at the show. The venue will be within a short walk of the live show, and an email with the location will go out to attendees two weeks prior.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for the live show.
