The Grand Rapids Rivermen braved last weekend’s winter storm to be here on Saturday for their annual Turkey’s In Bondage night at Touché. Even the Argonauts made it down from Green Bay to join them. Thanks to all of you that made the effort to get here and welcome both clubs to Chicago.
Yes, I was absent. I made my annual trek back for an Ohio Sate football game and am certain you had a much better time here that Saturday at the bar. Not only did my Buckeyes lose the game, it poured rain (I would have preferred the snow) as I sat there in the cold to watch them go down. And there was no beer to cry in at the stadium, damn college rules.
But I’m back and busy preparing to share a wild Thanksgiving holiday weekend with you, unless you’re heading out of town. If you’re hitting the road, be safe, we want you back here. Those of you sticking around, have we got some wild nights coming up.
Wednesday kicks off the weekend and in the bar biz, we call it our BLACK WEDNESDAY. Guys are back in town and ready to catch up with friends they haven’t seen in a while. I’m sure you have told your friends about the wild nights you have enjoyed at Touché. If you have buddies coming to spend the holiday with you, put the bird in the fridge and bring them by and let them get a taste of what you enjoy about the bar.
It’s a FULL MOON BEAR CHESTED NIGHT at Touché. Show us some skin for $1 off drinks. Being a longtime hot spot for bears, you’ll find plenty of furry men in the house. The Club Room will be open and I’ll host a contest at midnight with a $100 cash prize for the “hottest full moon” in the house. Another Touché tradition to share with your guests.
Go ahead and stuff yourself on Thursday, we’ll pamper you that evening at Touché for our BRANDY OR BROMO Night. We’ll be open at 6pm and tune in the Chicago Bears game against the Packers at 7. Our Cock&Tail happy hour specials run till 9pm and we’re also offering $1 off all our fine cognacs, single malts and other “good stuff” all night to cap off your day of feasting. Ate too much? We’ll keep some Alka Seltzer handy for those that need it. The Club Room will be open at 10pm just in case you’re looking for a late night treat.
Then it’s BLACK FRIDAY time. Shop all you want, you won’t find me near a store this day. But you will find me at Touché this night for ONYX CLUB NIGHT. It should be an extra big helping of hot men of color as the club always brings out lots of friends, there will be many more visiting brothers to add to the mix. You can count on ONYX to offer up some Jello shots, come on there’s always room for Jello, right? Raffles, demos, and men still “shopping” will make it a wild night.
We’re going to keep pouring it on come Saturday with our monthly RIPE PARTY. The lights will be kept low, the music even deeper with DJ Harry T up in the booth. I’ve got a couple of hot go-go dudes to dance for you and get you all ripe and nasty. Need more? Don’t forget we offer free clothing check so you can get down to your jock or BVDs and get nice and ripe yourself. It’s the last big night for the out-of-towners so you know they’ll be ripe for the pickin’!
Come Sunday, we’ll tone it down (just a bit) with our SUNDAY BEER BUST. After beating your wallet with holiday shopping, give it and your feet a break. Gab a seat at the bar and grab a cold beer or soda for just a buck all day and all night. Forget the leftover turkey, we have free Chicago Red Hots 4-7pm. The Club Room opens at 6pm and fills up by the time our MOVIE NIGHT begins at 7pm. Those of you that spent the holiday away can catch up with your friends here and get a “taste” at Touché before heading back to work on Monday.
The holidays have begun. Our annual NIGHT OF 1,000 SANTA’S with the Great Lakes Bears is next week. The hit HUMAN CHRISTMAS TREE DECORATING PARTY will return in December and of course you can plan on a hot spanking demo at our December Dungeon Master Night. Plenty of fun time to alleviate any holiday stress.
I was pleased to see all the bags of groceries brought in last week for the Groceryland Pantry. I’m taking those over today and will have that cart here ready to accept more donations throughout the season. Keep filling it up.
All of the staff here want me to offer you a hearty thanks and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Gooble, gooble.
