Another busy week around Touché. It doesn’t help having rain three days on and one. But remember your mother telling you “Wear your rubbers” to stay dry. You’ll see lots of rubber around the bar this Saturday. Before that, let’s do a quick recap.
As you may expect on this end of town, there were way more Cubs fans than Sox fans in the house last Friday. Congrates to the winners of the game tickets, play ball boys. A huge turnout on Saturday for our Bear Night meant the pizzas went in nearly record time. Have some big news for bears coming down the pike. Stay tuned.
And a big sweet treat on Sunday as 10 bakers battled it out at Trident Windy City’s Cupcakes War. Thanks to the crowd on hand $2,500 was raised that day for the Broadway Youth Center, shattering last year’s take. A shout out to Bradley at Leather 64TEN for winner the Master Baker title that afternoon.
The Sox got rained out but it was a thrilling game later last night as North Carolina top Gonzaga. Remember you can catch all the big sports events here at Touché. We’re ready for the Blackhawks in the playoffs!
Tonight is our Hardcore Cruisin’ Night with Leather 64TEN. Wear your leather and leave the cell phone. Cruise like we did back in 1977 when Touché opened. Hot men in leather checking out each other and not their phones.
Groovy tunes and classic Bijou vids are on tap for Throwback Thursdays. Just don’t post an old video or picture on Facebook. Come live the 70’s/80’s every Thursday at Touché
Then be ready for Touché weekend. Friday Night begins early with the CD4 Viral Social at 8pm. This is Chicago’s only cocktail party for poz and positively friendly men. A great group of guys gather each month here, poz or negative all are welcome to join them.
Every week, I get an email or two from guys looking to meet others into some kind of play S&M, bondage, fisting, or other “activities”. My response has always been to come in and meet the clubs that host private play parties. CHC , the Windy City Bondage Club and M.A.F.I.A. to name a few all welcome new players, novices or pros. If you are exploring sex play as a novice, the safest way is to meet these clubs to learn the safe, proper ways of kink play. They are not judgmental, all their members had their first time and are willing to take the time to let you explore and try things out.
If you like butt play then you want to come meet the guys of M.A.F.I.A. who will be here Friday hosting their Club Night at 10pm. They are a fun bunch of “piggy” players and host a monthly play party that attracts men from all over. Plus M.A.F.I.A. hosts regular play time at Steamworks and are readying for their Black Hole Parties over IML weekend in May. That makes this a good time to get acquainted with these handymen which hosts raffles and more each month here at Touché. Just look for the guys in the red shirts (probably sporting a red hanky, too!)
I told you to wear your rubber in this wet weather. Wet or dry, the Chicago Rubbermen will be joining us on Saturday for our monthly Dungeon Master Night. Each month we present a kink demo at midnight, this time round the Rubbermen will present one with a rubber twist. Whether you got tons of rubber gear or have never worn it before, come meet the Chicago Rubbermen and find out what makes rubber so much fun, sexy and hot to wear and play.
Speaking of rubber, we just had our first meeting last night to plan Mr Midwest Rubber 2017. Details to come very soon but mark your calendars now July 14-16 and plan to be here.
Before you know it, another Sunday will roll around. For your last chance to enjoy yourself before returning to work next come check out our Sunday Beer Bust. We offer the best deal in town, cold drafts of Bud and Bud Light, sodas and Pucker shots are just a buck ALL DAY. No happy hour but all day and all night. While away the afternoon with your buddies as we watch sports on the screens or come in for our Movie Night in the Club Room at 7pm. You’ll probably hang out later than you should with all the guys in the house, but hey, you’ve got to make it a good weekend.
BEAR ALL Saturday April 22nd another night of great live music by gay singers/songwriters/musicians at the bar
LEATHER EYE FOR THE PREPPY GUY Friday April 28th our annual leather makeover contest to benefit the Groceryland Pantry. Always a fun night!
Pick up an April/May calendar at the bar this week. You’ll see what’s keeping me busy and ready for drink at Touché any night. Join us.
