Chicago Bean Facebook Events refer to a series of parody Facebook event invite pages on for various tongue-in-cheek gatherings at the Chicago public art landmark "Cloud Gate," known colloquially as the "Chicago Bean."
On October 22nd, 2017, Facebook user Stephanie Reid opened invites for an event entitled "Windex the Bean" on November 15th, 2017. The details of the event read, "The Bean is dirty." Within one week, the post has received more than 3,000 guests confirmed as "going" and 25,000 "interested.
Shortly after the event received attention, more events began appearing on Facebook. For example, "Critique the Bean's Resume" (shown below, left) was launched on October 24th,
"Replace the Bean with Mr. Bean" (shown below, center) on October 25th, and "Release The Bean into Lake Michigan and shout 'You're free!'" (shown below, right) on October 26th.
Several news outlets covered the popularity of the events, including Hyperallergic, WGN9, Curbed, TimeOut, Rockford Register and more.
