Shake That Dirt Off Your Shoulders With Jay Z, Get Down Low With Snow Tha Product At South Side Ballroom And Go Down Swinging With Fall Out Boy.

Anyone with a TV and Netflix has been binge-watching and obsessing over the much-anticipated Season 2 of Stranger Things. And while the series is full of monsters, super-powers and all things sci-fi, the inspiration behind the story, and specifically where Eleven came from, is very much real.

Montauk Point of Long Island hosts Camp Hero, a decommissioned military base with a long-standing reputation for government conspiracy theories, and Christopher P. Garetano, among others, has dedicated decades of his life to uncovering the truth beneath Montauk, creating the documentary The Montauk Chronicles and an investigation on the History Channels series, The Dark Files.

While there’s not much defense to the Upside Down being a real place or the existence of the monsters that inhabit it, there are similarities in the experiments conducted on Eleven that give her her powers in the show and those believed to have happened at Camp Hero in the early to mid 1900s such as experimentation on children, mind-bending drug tests, alleged alien abductions and time travel experiences.

Though still legend, the stories of Montauk are creepy and chilling, making for an epic and highly entertaining TV series. But we’re sure you’re already done with the season, so here are some cool things going on in the D this week to fill the void in your calendar. — Lauren Keuning
