It’s hard to believe that August is coming to an end, seems like we just cleared up after IML and readying for Pride. Touché has been a hotbed of activity all summer long and we’re not letting up yet. We have a couple of our best nights to come this weekend before we head into the long Labor Day Weekend.
This Friday is ONYX CLUB NIGHT and a sure start to a big weekend. ONYX is one of our biggest leather clubs and they pull in a lot of friends for their nights here at Touché. This month ONYX indulges in all things bondage! You can expect a demo and more during the night. I’m sure they will have their potent jello shots, watch out. Whatever they do, you can count on ONYX to throw a great party.
Saturday is our monthly RIPE PARTY and you should know by now that that means a hot night at Touché. We’ll dim the lights, our DJ Harry T deepens the beats and our hot go-go dudes will be up on the stages to entertain you. If you’re getting warmed up and ripe, don’t forget our free clothing check.
It’s also Rodeo Round Town weekend here in Chicago. The Illinois Gay Rodeo Association is hosting events around town preparing to bring live rodeo back to Chicago in 2017. As a supporter of the Windy City Rodeo, they want us here at Touché to host one of these events on Saturday night. What better way than to get those cowboys out of their tight jeans than an underwear auction?
As part of our Ripe Party, I’ll be hosting this auction at midnight and give you a chance to bid on the hot gear our studs will be wearing from Cram on Halsted. Lots of men sporting some fun, hot undergear for you to bid on. We’ll let you take those jockeys off them if you’re the top bidder. There will also be a raffle and you can become a member of ILGRA, too. Let’s help bring the rodeo and more cowboys back to Chicago for next summer.
Have you snagged one of our Touché beach towels yet? We’ve been raffling them off all summer and only have a couple more chances for you to win one this year. I know you’re going to make the most of this last August weekend, but you can still head over to the bar for our SUNDAY BEER BUST and AFTER THE BEACH PARTY. The Beer Bust runs all day with $1 Bud & Bud Light drafts. The Beach Party kicks off at 3pm and features our Beer Bust specials, free eats and raffles for a Touché beach pack and other cool prizes. Enjoy the sun but get your ass in here for a cold one and a chance to grab one of our beach towels.
There’s also our SUNDAY MOVIE NIGHT in the Club Room. At 7pm each week, we screen one of the latest Blu-Ray releases on our HD screen with Surround Sound. Way cool and loads of fun. Next weekend is Labor Day and while that may bring a tear to your eye about the end of summer, we have lots planned to make ending another Chicago summer a great time. If you’ve got friends coming to spend the weekend, you know they will be glad you brought them here. Check out the schedule, I’ll give you the rundown next week.
We are still looking for folks to join our teams. Bowling season begins after Labor Day and we have a couple of Touché teams lined up for the Tuesday night league. We can always use a couple more bowlers and if there are enough, we can sport a third team, too. Wanna play with us?
The other team we are recruiting is our team in the upcoming AIDS WALK on Saturday, Oct 1st. Registration is simple and we are planning some fundraisers to help out Chicago House. Thanks to everyone that came out for our annual “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ ‘ benefit last Saturday. With the help of the Chicago Rubbermen in selling raffle tickets and the donation of a pair of Chippewa boots from Leather 64TEN, we raised $400. Join our team, take a short walk and help us support Chicago House. Talk to me about the team or leave your contact info with the bartenders.
The rain has stopped, time to get out and enjoy the day before our Jockstrap Night at Touché. Maybe I’ll see you there?
