They started to eat his crablegs. They started to eat his crablegs and he got mad.

Your attendance supports singing, laughing, and amazing stories written by children.

When you purchase a ticket for the extremely fair price of $30, you not only get the chance to support BOM’s work with Chicago’s youth – igniting their imaginations, boosting their self-esteem and improving literacy – but you ALSO get well cocktails, house wine, and domestic beers (including these signature house-brewed ales: “Blonde Bombshell” golden ale, “Mary Hoppins” pale ale, and “Gangster” hopped-up amber ale)... not to mention the karaoke, and therefore, entertainment in abundance.

Various and sundry other fun and fabulous activities will occur at the event, including a prize wheel, sponsored Monkey performances, and maybe a few surprises along the way.

We’re thrilled to announce this year’s Monkey-O-Kee Sponsored Singers! These fabulous folks will each be performing show stopping numbers for you!
