Egyptmania: A Festivity For the Pharaohs with the Illinois Obscura Society

This institution is devoted to the serious research of Middle Eastern artifacts, but for one night, they let us invade their halls in our favorite 1920s costume, complete with custom hooch, gypsy jazz, and even some bellydancers!
