DNAinfo Chicago's first In Real Life (IRL) gathering is scheduled for 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Piece Brewery & Pizzeria, 1927 W. North Ave. in Wicker Park. 

Hang with other neighborhood news geeks while enjoying pizza, a pint of craft beer, a shot of well liquor and free tarot readings. Tickets are $20 ($22.09 with Eventbrite service fee) and can be purchased here.   As an added perk, one lucky ticket holder will win a copy of "Sad Pictures for Children," a comic book written by local author John Campbell, who burned several of his books.
