GENEVA – Graham’s 318 Coffeehouse will be featuring a “Stranger Things” theme from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 27 at 318 S. Third St., Geneva.

The hit Netflix show’s second season launches on the same day, prompting the coffeehouse to decorate and coordinate with themed drinks, desserts and a raffle to win a copy of the pilot for the show’s first season, coffeehouse manager Kristen Sommerfeld said.

“It’s about a bunch of kids and one of them goes missing,” Sommerfeld said about the show. “The kid goes missing into an alternate world called the Upside Down. And it’s a big hats off to the 1980s that are really popular now. We are going to do the fun ’80s music. It’s going to be really cool.”

One of the themed desserts will be the Eleven Cupcake, a single cupcake with a waffle on top with maple syrup frosting, Sommerfeld said.

Eleven is the name of a character in the show, she said.

A themed drink will be the Demogorgon, made with berry and ginger peach tea and garnished with fresh strawberry fruit puree on top with floating cherries, Sommerfeld said.

“The Demogorgon is a main monster in the show,” she said. “It’s a creepy, spooky monster.”

Because the show takes place in the 1980s, its characters use walkie-talkies to communicate – rather than cellphones, she said.

Netflix provided a copy of the first season’s pilot script of the show and the raffle will benefit TriCity Family Services, she said.

Tickets are $1 each and the drawing will be at the end of the event at 6 p.m.

Also from 4 to 6 p.m., Netflix will have a pop-up green screen photo booth for patrons to pretend they have photos taken in the Upside Down.

Sommerfeld said the booth will print out the photos for each guest or group at no charge.

Graham’s 318 Coffeehouse has had other special themed events, such as for the TV show “Gilmore Girls” last year and Earth Day and Harry Potter’s birthday earlier this year.
