Gastro Obscura Vending Machine
This fall Atlas Obscura is promoting the launch of our much-anticipated culinary book Gastro Obscura: A Food Adventurer's Guide and will be touring a custom vending machine featuring the book alongside other rare and unusual food and drink items from around the world.
We’re bringing the Gastro Obscura vending machine to Chicago’s historic Hideout (c. 1934) for its Midwest debut on Saturday, October 23 from 1:00 - 4:00pm. Atlas Obscura co-founder and co-author Dylan Thuras will be on site for a meet-and-greet and book signing, along with a special fruit and vegetable synth performance and interactive music station that encourages guests to play with their food. The machine will remain on site through Monday, October 25.
