Last minute news this week guys, but after last week’s huge Mr Midwest Rubber Contest, I snuck away for some roller coaster riding this week. I’m back and ready to sweat out another hot weekend at Touché.
First of all congrates to our new Mr Midwest Rubber 2015 Gummibrachen. Here he is flanked by our judges Ryan Johnson-Mr Vulcan Rubber 1994, Joe Spaceman-MWR2014, Gummibrachen-MWR2015, Luis Tipantasig-MCL2015, Laura Pulice-owner Vex Clothing & Joey McDonald-IML Executive Director. The contest last Saturday night was lots of fun with MCL 2005 Jeff Willoughby as our MC. There were 2 contestants cheered on by a big crowd of rubber and leather men. Each was properly grilled onstage, displayed their “ass”sets and showed off their imaginative dungeon skills during the “mystery bag” portion of the contest. Not an easy task as our winner had his parents in the audience as he smeared banana pudding up our demo bottom’s ass. Check out the Great Lakes Den website for more photos from the contest.
It’s going to be a hot & steamy Chicago weekend and I’m not just talking about the weather. Escape the heat and humidity outside and enjoy the wild nights here at Touché.
Friday night Riot Bear Productions presents RIP IT UP! Crazy man DJ Germ returns to our booth for a night of all things loud, heavy and outside the mainstream. If you’re tired of the same gay bar dance music program, this is your night to enjoy some kick ass punk rock. Get here and enjoy.
You’ll really be feeling the heat on Saturday, that’s because it’s our hot monthly RIPE PARTY. The lights will be low, DJ Harry T will pump out some seriously deep beats and our go-go dudes will work our stages. There’s a reason we call this party ripe, it’s hot, sweaty and loads of fun. Free clothing check is offered if you want to shed your pants and gear. Indulge.
All this heat and humidity getting to you? Take a break and chill out at Touché on Sundays. We offer up THE BEST DEAL IN TOWN! Our Sunday Beer Bust kicks off at noon and till we close, the Bud & Bud Light drafts are just a buck all day. We also serve up sodas for a $1 too. We don’t want you to get sunburned, we have a couple of good reasons to come in out of the sun.
Join our bartender Robb for our After The Beach Party from 3-7 with great raffles and eats. Then it’s time for Mark to host our Movie Night at 7pm in the Club Room featuring the latest releases and favorite classics. You’d think the dark room would be nice and cool, but things tend to heat up during the night. We don’t think you’ll mind at all.
There’s lots more summer to come yet. August has 5, yep 5 big Saturdays before we get to Labor Day weekend. That means plenty more time to enjoy your summer including Market Days weekend. Plus we have 2 big events scheduled for August, our annual AIDS Walk benefit for Chicago House “These Boots Are Made For Walkin'” and then our Cowboy Eye for the Leather Guy with the Illinois Gay Rodeo Association.
Get out there and play this summer and make sure you get in here and play some more with your buddies at Touché. I’ll be heading back to an amusement park soon but I’ll be here looking for you tonight.
