Posting stuff late this week so will be brief. You might think the dog days of Summer are coming upon us, long boring days. But that’s not the case for Chicago. This weekend the city hosts Loolapalooza, lots great music and thousands of fans. Next week, Market Days take over Boystown and the following weekend if the big Air & Water Show that brings over a million folks to the lakefront. All good reasons to stay in town and help us welcome the thousands of visitors coming our way over the next few weeks.
Which has me busy planning some big nights for all to enjoy. Before anything about that, here’s what’s up this weekend at Touché.
We start off another big weekend with the CD4 VIRAL SOCIAL on Friday evening. Everyone is welcome to join our poz friends and positive minded friends for drinks, lite bites and fellowship. I’m sure the busy summer has keep you on the run, what better way to begin the weekend by reconnecting with friends for a drink and conversation.
The first time you hear “hands up” you might not realize that a great party is about to begin. The “handy” men of M.A.F.I.A. return for their monthly Club Night at Touché. And they have a whole different idea about putting your hands up.
Not only will they be hosting a 50/50 raffle for a big cash prize, they are also preparing for their monthly play party set for Saturday night. And like any bunch of horny dudes, they are ready to welcome new players to join them. Newbies or “pros” all are welcome to attend. Play or watch and learn, M.A.F.I.A. guys are eager to show you how to fist.
Friendly, furry faces are what you’ll find here at Touché on Saturday during our monthly BEAR NIGHT. Touché was the first bar to welcome the bigger, hairy guys around town and set a night just for them to gather and have some fun. Over the years, they’ve come to be a part of us and you’ll find bears here most every night.
But the first Saturday of every month, we welcome them for a night all their own! You can count on our DJ Harry T to be up in the booth pounding out some great music for all to enjoy. And since it’s our late, late night of the week, we always “feed the bears” with the Midnight Pizza Panic. Hungry for bear? Come and get ‘em.
Whether you’re catching the music at Loolapalooza, hangin’ at the beach or cruising the parks, sooner or later everyone winds up here for our Sunday Beer Bust. Makes sense, it’s the best deal in town with $1 drafts of Bud & Bud Light, sodas and Pucker shots all day and all night long.
Stop in during the afternoon for our After The Beach Party with free eats and door prizes. Have you won one of our Touché summer fun packs yet? They include a nifty cooler to keep your drinks cold, a summer Touché tank with shades & a cap to keep the sun out of your eyes. And they also include a Touché beach towel! You’ve still got a chance to snag one this year before summer is over.
Head in later for our Sunday Movie Night in the Club Room at 7pm. The Beer Bust rolls on and you can catch the latest releases on our big screen with surround sound. ( That is unless you get distracted by some of the other guys in the dark) It’s all a start to late night madness on Sunday nights.
But wait, there’s more! (Just like the commercials) Save a bit of energy for the FULL MOON on Monday night. The Club Room will be open, we’ll have a few specials and door prizes and I will still offer a cash prize to the hottest “full moon” in the house at midnight!
So plan to join us for this wild weekend. You might as well plan to spend every weekend in August with us. I’ll fill you in next week on the rest of the month. Dog days indeed, just fun nights at Touché!
We’ll be ready for you.
