We’re down to the last week of September already. I don’t know about you but I am ready for it to chill down a bit after the past week of 90’s. Good thing we are celebrating OKTOBERFEST at Touché. Lots of you have been cooling off with those $4 pints of Leinenkugel’s OktoberFest Beer. I made sure we have enough kegs to keep us going till OKTOBERFEST ends on Sunday. Come enjoy another pint with us this weekend and make sure you enter the drawing for a new leather jacket from Leather 64TEN. Sooner or later it will cool down and you’ll need it.
The Chicago Cubs just clinched their title and heading to the playoffs next week. Now our Chicago Bears are fresh off their first victory and taking on the Packers on Thursday Night Football. We’ll tune in the game for what could be a sweet victory to help right their course this season. Those OKTOBERFEST pints would go nicely with a good game of football.
Friday night will be our STEPPING OFF benefit for the Chicago House AIDS WALK TEAM. With the big WALK coming up Sunday morning this will be our last chance to support the team. Our goal this year is $1,000 and we are well on our way there after our previous benefit parties. I won’t tell you where we’re at yet, just come on in and help us and we should reach that goal. We have lots of great prizes including a CLAW weekend registration, an MCL2018 package and more to auction and raffle off. I’m counting on you to come bid and buy your raffle tickets. I want to make that $1,000 donation to Chicago House when I step off in the AIDS WALK this Sunday morning.
We’ll end September with our popular monthly RIPE PARTY. The lights will be low, DJ Harry T will deepen the beats and then our hot go-go dudes will take the stages at midnight to get you all worked up and ripe. Remember we offer free clothing check to make it easy for you to get nice and ripe, too. No wonder it’s one of our wildest monthly parties.
Since they played a game on Thursday night, there won’t be a Chicago Bears game on Sunday. But it will still be a busy SUNDAY BEER BUST as we bring down the curtain on OKTOBERFEST 2017. Now if you were in Munich, the tents fold up while we are just getting started. First, we’re adding the Leinenkugel OktoberFest Beer to our $1 draft offer with Bud and Bud Light that is served up all day long.
Come by from 3-7pm for our final OKTOBERFEST PARTY this year. We’ll serve a buffet of bratwursts, German style potato salad, fresh baked pretzels and a little sweet strudel treat. We’ll hold our annual Beer Stein Holding Contest and by 7pm we will draw the name of this year’s winner of a brand new leather jacket from LEATHER 64TEN.
There’s still our SUNDAY MOVIE NIGHT at 7pm in the Club Room. Sit back after a big ol’ brat and enjoy the movie or get your night going in the dark Club Room.
Then it’s on to my favorite month of the year – October. Cooler temps, lots of football (and playoffs with the Cubs) leading up to the big gay holiday – HALLOWEEN. But first we welcome the American Brotherhood Weekend to Chicago next weekend. That will guarantee you a wild weekend at Touché. As part of our big Year 40, we will bring back another Touché infamous party the SNAKE PIT PARTY in October. And then be warned – the MAZE returns for Halloween week along with a week of Halloween fun.
I’ve just about got our big 40th Anniversary 5 night celebration all set, including a huge raffle prize. I am busting to give you all the details but there’s just a couple of loose ends (DJ line up, etc.) Watch for news to break any moment. If you are following Touché on Facebook or Twitter you might be the first to know.
If you think that’s all, think again. We just had our first planning meeting for MR CHICAGO LEATHER 2018 and things are already fallen into place for another big contest weekend in January. Announcements on the weekend will be posted next week on the MCL page on our website.
For all our bears out there, plans for CHICAGO BEARFEST are also in the works. Maybe news for you by October’s BEAR NIGHT? Let me see how fast I recover from the AIDS WALK and Oktoberfest this Sunday.
In the meantime, let’s raise another pint and maybe a little Schnapps? Happy Oktoberfest!
