We’ve got a busy week planned for lots of Halloween fun with treats and tricks to please all. Of course the big excitement is our Halloween maze in the Club Room which will open tonight, Monday and be there for a full week to enjoy, if you dare. We still have a few finishing touches to our décor for Halloween and you can help us out to make it all right.

Our first Halloween party is tonight, a bit of pumpkin carving fun. We have a few pumpkins that need carving to add to our woods and you can come help us out. Join me at 8pm, we’ll set you up with all the tools, designs and carving tips to make one scary jack-o-lantern. You can carve one of ours or bring your own to add to your Halloween decorating at home. We’ll give you a couple of hours to work and then have a contest at 10pm to pick the best, scariest and funniest jack-o-lanterns of the night. Then we’ll open the maze in the Club Room to get Halloween off right.

Tuesday Night come do the time warp again as we screen the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW at 10pm. A Touché tradition, we’ll provide all the props you’ll need to make it THE party and we’d love to see your Rocky costumes to top off the night. Enjoy the show and then plunge into the maze for a second night.

You know Wednesdays are our BEAR CHESTED NIGHT and for Halloween there’s more that bears lurking in our woods. Rumor has it there will be some BIG HAIRY MONSTERS as well. If you dare, you can help us find those monsters and maybe take one home with our special game beginning at 10pm. Find the right monster and you can win a hot DVD from Bijou Video. Take that monster home and pop him into your player for more Halloween fun.

Adding to the Halloween excitement this weekend, Mr International Rubber 2015 comes to town as well. Touché welcomes MIR on Thursday with a big bash hosted by our Mr Midwest Rubber 2014 Joe Spaceman. Since the rubbermen pride themselves on being pervs, it’s appropriate that we host our PUMPKIN FISTING CONTEST this night at midnight. Come help Joe welcome the rubber world to Touché and Chicago and cheer him on at the Mr International Rubber Contest this weekend at the Center On Halsted.

HALLOWEEN is Friday, perfect timing for everyone to get out and enjoy a wild and crazy night. We’ll serve up some special treats and a few tricks as well. The Maze will be open for you to explore and you can expect things to go bump in the dark. Those of you in costume will want to hit the parade and roam around town to show it off. Just get up here for your late night scares, we’ll host a contest with prizes for the best and tackiest costumes at 1am. I dare you to knock my socks off.

Then get up and be ready to do it again for our SCARE BEAR NIGHT with the Great Lakes Bears on Saturday. More Halloween fun with more treats & tricks as our woods is filled with bears on the prowl. We’ll even do another contest on Saturday after our Midnight Pizza Panic, you can wear that costume 2 days in a row. If it’s really good, no one should recognize you right? The maze will still be up for added thrills.

Speaking of Bears, our Chicago Bears are looking pretty frightful now, but we’ll still tune in the game during our Sunday Beer Bust. We can always flip over to the Bulls or Blackhawks if they fail us. But you can count on the bartenders to serve up those drafts of Bud & Bud Light for just a buck all day and all night. We have another fright feature for you for our Sunday Movie Night at 7pm in the Club Room and then you can enjoy the maze for one last night before it disappears till next Halloween.

We’ll work quickly to pack Halloween away and prepare for our big 37th ANNIVERSARY FULL MOON PARTY next Thursday, November 6th. Make you pick up your invite while you’re out for Halloween.

I hope you will join us tonight for some carving fun unless the thought of me with a knife scares you.

I heard a few of you noticed I was not in the bar this past weekend. I dashed out for Homecoming at Ohio State last Saturday, come on even I deserve a break every once in awhile. The cold wind did not deter our tailgating before the game with plenty of eye candy to check out, all those college boys and several seasoned alumni, woof! While the young guys were cute, those older guys with a bit of gray in the beard worked the best for me. Unfortunately it’s been years since I was on campus and knew of the good spots to drag someone off for a bit of risky, frisky fun if you follow my meaning.

OSU welcomed Rutgers University for their first game at the “Shoe.” I understand their stadium holds about 40,000, the horseshoe at OSU holds about 107,000, so it was probably the biggest crowd their team ever played in front of. After their loss to our Buckeyes, the student cheering section offered a final cheer “Hey Rutgers, Welcome to the Big Ten.”

Besides all the Homecoming stuff at the game (naming the King & Queen, etc.) the Best Damn Band In The Land put on one hell of a halftime show. The OSU Marching Band does some incredible studs in their shows. They just don’t step into new formations to play, they make it a moving picture. Their tribute to rock & roll included a rocker playing his guitar, Frankenstein walking across the field, a pinball game for Tommy and more. Check out this show and several of their others on You Tube here.

While I was at the game, the Windy City Bondage Club hosted a great bar night on Friday with a few guys getting the rope treatment. Saturday was our GEAR FETISH NIGHT saw lots of leather, rubber and uniforms in the house. BLUF/Chicago gathered here for the night and our Mr Chicago Leather 2014 Miguel hosted a salute to Sir Justin and pup Tork for winning the International Pup & Trainer titles in October. This was the first time Chicago got to congratulate them on their new titles.

We’re deep into October and the hammers keep swinging as work on the front of the bar progresses. They got the upper level of the front finished and the scaffolding that has been out front for months is now gone. Sorry smokers, you’ll have to forgo cover on those rainy days. But without the scaffolding in the way, the crews can get to work on the lower half and hopefully warp this project up by our big anniversary party in November. Insulation, plywood and wrap are on this week’s agenda. Then next week it will be the new windows, new panels and lighting to follow. The last job will be our new sign, it’s going to look great!

Halloween fun begins next Monday when we open our Maze in the Club Room for a wild, wicked week. I’ll detail all the weeks events but we still have a big weekend to enjoy before things get creepy, spooky here.

ONYX invades the house for our FRIDAY CLUB NIGHT to celebrate their 19th anniversary! That can only mean the guys will be up for some serious celebrating. Jello shots, raffles and lots of hot men, you know they’ll have lots of friends out to help them mark this occasion up big. Come join the party.

I jumped the gun last month, DJ INTELECT helped us launch our monthly RIPE PARTY and has been spinning some incredible tunes for this event. I posted that the last party would be his last as he is moving back to the West Coast, but he is not leaving Chicago till November 1st. That means he will be here one more night this Saturday to get the party going. Come enjoy his great set of music, we’ll dim the lights and have some hot guys up on our stages to dance for you. RIPE will continue as we have lined up a another great DJ to keep the music coming and the party RIPE. We’ll introduce him in November.

We can only hope that last week’s spanking at Soldier Field will spark the Chicago Bears into a winning team. We’ll tune in the game at noon on Sunday. At least you can count on our SUNDAY BEER BUST, the Bud & Light drafts for a buck is always a winner. Now that the Bulls & Blackhawks seasons are underway, there’s even more sports action to enjoy while you sip those dollar drafts on a Sunday afternoon.

Our SUNDAY MOVIE NIGHT kicks off Halloween thrills this week. We’ve got a new chiller feature to show you, better grab hold of someone to calm your nerves. The Club Room opens at 6 with the movie at 7pm and the thrills continue all night. Seems Mark has a thing for underwear, somehow he manages to get most of the crowd out of their pants. Just wondering if anyone watches the movie?

Now it’s time to focus on Halloween and get the bar all decked out. I actually like decorating for Halloween more than Christmas. Trying to think up different ways to spook out the crowd. This year, we’re going to take you into the woods. Anything to make it go bump in the night. Here’s a quick rundown of our Halloween week events.

Monday – BIG PUMPKIN join us at 8pm for some pumpkin carving fun. We have few to prepare for our décor or bring your own to take with. We’ll have the tools, designs and tips to make your jack-o-lantern up right. At 10pm we’ll judge the results with a nice prize package for the winner.

Tuesday – ROCKY HORROR PARTY a Touché tradition, we’ll have all the props you’ll need when we screen this twisted gem at 10pm. Costumes are welcome, there’s nothing like seeing the room do the Time Warp Again!

Wednesday – BIG HAIRY BEAST this shirtless night will feature a new game for prizes. There are several big hairy beasts involved, think you can handle them?

Thursday – WELCOME MR INTERNATIONAL RUBBER 2015 as if Halloween is not crazy enough, MIR comes to Chicago this weekend and Mr Midwest Rubber 2014 Joe Gallagher will host a party welcoming rubber pervs from around the world. There should be plenty of guys bouncing off the walls in our maze (all that rubber you know) and we’ll test their pervert skills with our Pumpkin Fisting Contest.

Friday – HALLOWEEN PARTY it’s the big night we’ve been building up to. Lighten up, we may be a leather bar but we are a GAY bar too. Who doesn’t love some good Halloween fun with treats, a few tricks and a contest for all those costumes. It will be a BOO-tiful night.

Saturday – SCARE BEAR NIGHT we’ll stretch the fun one more night with the Great Lakes Bears. Costumes welcome, with more treats, tricks and another contest. I promise no pumpkin on the pizzas.

The Halloween Maze in the Club Room will be open each night, dare it if you have the balls. Things do go bump in the dark and we’re not sure just what will grab you. It is Halloween you know, be brave.

Come help ONYX celebrate 19 and make DJ Intelect’s last night RIPE!
