    Catch the Pokémon Pop-Up Bar Coming to NYC

    PokeBar -- a Pokemon-inspired pop-up bar -- will come to Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood November 3 through 24. Tickets are on pre-sale for $55. (Published Friday, June 21, 2019)

    If the phrase "gotta catch 'em all" has been a northstar for you over the last three years, then you know what it is means to be light on your feet, and ready to move fast, and available to head to wherever a cadre of catchable characters have been spotted.

    We're talking, of course, about Pokémon GO, the augmented reality world that's seen people stopping by parks, museums, popular destinations, and out-of-the-way spots all to see what fanciful figures they might meet through the screen of their phone.

    But what if you knew exactly where to go for some powerful Pokémon action? And a savory burger that's themed to the Pokéverse, and a drink, too, as well as the chance to costume-up and do some battle?

    You do, if you head to this page, which has the details on PokeBar, which is popping up across the U.S. this summer and fall.
