NOTE: This event never occurred and was likely part of an effort to gather consumers' contact information before disappearing. Orlando Weekly is investigating the organizers, and has revised our vetting process to verify all pop-up events prior to publication.

A new poke bar is coming to Orlando, but it won't be of the raw fish variety. It's taking Pokémon fandom and mixing it with drinks and food – including what looks to be a Pikachu burger.

The pop-up PokéBar will hit Orlando for a limited time this fall (Oct. 26-27) at an as-yet-undisclosed location, with everything from DJs and costume contests to, of course, catching and "evolving" Pokémon. Similar Pokémon-themed pop-up bars are also making the rounds in the U.K.

The event organizer promises that there will be a variety of special Pokémon from different regions to catch at the event. Paid admission includes Pokémon-themed burgers and a themed drink, so you can eat and drink the creatures, even if you didn't catch them.

Tickets are first come, first serve. Here's a link to sign up for pre-sale tickets. Anyone under 21 needs an adult to go with them.
