Rickmobile Staff Pick

When: Wed., Aug. 29, 5-8 p.m. 2018
Price: free admission
Rick, the more intelligent and far more destructive half of the wildly popular Adult Swim TV show Rick and Morty, has taken on the form of a large truck dubbed the "Rickmobile," and is now careening across the country on the "Don't Even Trip" Road Trip 2018. 4 Hands Brewing Co. (1220 South Eighth Street; will host the intrastellar vehicle from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, August 29. Inside the Rickmobile is a treasure trove of limited edition Rick and Morty merchandise, and it's all for sale.

You're right, that does sound suspicious. Anytime Rick dabbles in commerce, he usually has an ulterior motive. The self-proclaimed "smartest man in the universe" is consumed by arms deals, microscopic amusement parks tucked inside a drifter's body and countless schemes yet to be revealed. Do you risk becoming enraptured by all that dangerous craziness and crazy dangerousness? It may be worth it. The Rickmobile has offered inflatable Gwendolyn pool floats (the sex robot Morty acquires in "Raising Gazorpazorp"), T-shirts that depict the necessary steps for making the Plumbus and more. All of the merchandise is extremely limited, and the Rickmobile only accepts credit and debit cards — no cash. You're welcome to dress up as your favorite character, but if the line grows too long it will be capped and not even your sweet-ass Birdperson costume can stop it.
