The third times a charm. After weather delays on Saturday and Monday mornings, our new sign is going up on the building today as I draft this week’s posting. Our name Touché is back up on the street. Now you can’t miss us, come take a look.
Thanksgiving is here with many guys coming and going for the holiday. If you are one of those heading out of town, be safe, PLAY SAFE and come see us when you get back in town. For those of you staying in town or coming home to visit, we’re ready to celebrate the holiday with you. Grab your visiting guests and bring them on over so they can see why we’re your favorite leather/bear bar in Chicago. Touché will be open every night, the Club Room will be open every night and there’s no cover all weekend.
The party starts rolling on Black Wednesday with a huge BEAR CHESTED NIGHT at the bar. First of all, we want you to show off the fur, you’ll get a buck off your drinks if you are shirtless (take it off once you get in the bar) IML 2012 Woody Woodruff will host a Bear Dancer Contest at midnight with a $100 cash prize for the winner with DJ Harry T providing the tunes to get them moving.
We know there as some humpy, hairy guys out there that can entertain us (most times you see dancers, they don’t have a lick of hair on them and many look like they need to eat) Come show off your dancing, stripping skills or be ready to cheer on those who enter the contest. With Woody as our host, it’s going to be a wild time.
Touché will open at 8pm on Thanksgiving day so the staff can do a bit of feasting too. We’ll be ready to take care of you no matter what. All our premium cognacs, single malts and cordials will be discounted all night. We’ll even make sure to keep the coffee fresh and hot. Top off your day with a nice beverage treat. The Club Room will open at 10pm just in case you are in the mood for more.
It just happens that the men of ONYX will be here on Black Friday for their monthly Club Night at Touché. So let’s make the most of it. You know the ONYX guys will have those potent jello shots and a raffle going on. Get a shot and your tickets, who knows what you’ll end up with but it will be better than any Black Friday offer at Walmart or Target.
After the turkey and shopping, you know Saturday night is going to be big, it’s last night before guys head home and they will want to get their fill. We’ve got just the thing, our monthly RIPE PARTY. We’ll turn down the lights, turn up the beats and turn loose our hot go-go dudes to entertain you. DJ Harry T takes over the booth for this monthly party and we are confident you’re going to love the music. Come get RIPE with us, we offer free clothing check if you want to get down to that jockstrap or skivvies.
You can catch your breath on Sunday during our BEER BUST. Whether you are trying to snatch up the last bargains this day or getting back to town, come recharge with our $1 drafts of Bud & Bud Light. Grab a bit and then check out our Movie Night in the Club Room at 7pm with an appropriate holiday themed film.
Speaking of the holidays, we are now in it till New Year’s Day. We have lots of fun events and seasonal beverages to celebrate the season. Our annual NIGHT OF 1,000 SANTA’S with the Great Lakes Bears is next Saturday. It’s a Toys For Tots benefit, bring an unwrapped toy for a chance to win a Bear Pride 2015 weekend registration and more.
We have a new holiday event “Human Christmas Tree Decorating” on Friday December 12th. You can buy an ornament to hang on our “trees”, all to benefit the Groceryland Pantry. Our grocery cart is parked by the front door awaiting your donation of non-perishable food or personal care items any time you visit Touché this season. Pick up a couple of extra canned goods, cereal, etc while you’re shopping and drop them in the cart when you come by the bar. We’ll haul them over to the pantry each week to keep them stocked.
Under the “we cater to all” category, we’ll celebrate the first night of Chanukah on Tuesday, December 16th. Our uncle Chanukah Harry will join us with gelt and gifts plus special drinks to mark the occasion. Mark these dates or pick up our monthly calendar at the bar.
As for holiday treats, we have HornyCopia, a tasty Pumpkin Beer to top off your Thanksgiving and a winter hearty – Firestone Walker’s Vetvet Merlin, a great oatmeal stout that has already been selling well. Next week, we’ll add Shiner’s Cheer and our December beer of the month Revolution’s FISTMAS (how could I not offer a beer with this name to Touché’s customers?) Check them out.
Don’t forget you can like us/follow us on Facebook and Twitter, just look for ToucheChicago. Enjoy that turkey and dressing, just leave room for some Touché dessert.
