Got to make sure I put this post out on the website. Each week, I update this website and then use that post for the body of my email blast. But last week was the second time this fall that I forgot to “publish” my post. I refuse to admit age has anything to do with it, I’ll blame the Jager first. So let’s see if I can remember to put this up on the website after I draft it.
I want to be sure I take that last step, particularly these next couple of weeks. We have a nearly 2 weeks of non-stop action that begins with Halloween and runs right into our big 40th Anniversary celebrations. Right now I’ll concentrate on Halloween events and will add a second post to cover all anniversary parties.
Big, hairy, tough and nasty – just what you’d like for wild night and we’re going to give it to you for 6 nights of Halloween. This year’s theme is “Halloween in the Den of the Werewolf” and we’re ready to take a big bite of thrills. It all begins on Thursday night as we “Unleash the Beast” at Touché with the opening of our maze in the Club Room. It’s everyone’s favorite part of our Halloween fun and will be open nightly through Halloween Night on the 31st. Come in Thursday for your first “lost in the maze” of 2017.
The next night, ONYX will haunt the maze for their CLUB NIGHT on Friday. They will also offer up those jello shots in case you need some nerve to tempt the maze. And they will host another big raffle. You know ONYX brings out a huge crowd when they are here and with werewolves on the loose, you know it will be wild night.
We’ll just keep piling the thrills with a howling big RIPE PARTY on Saturday. Great music, dark spaces and werewolves on the prowl make for another hot night. Since lots of folks will be out in costume, we’ll hold a contest at 1am so they can show them off with a cash prize for the best costume we find in the dark.
On Sunday you can ease into another wild night with our SUNDAY BEER BUST. We open at noon and start to pour those $1drafts of Bud & Bud Light all day. The Chicago Bears look to extend their wins at noon and we’ll offer up a few Halloween treats with our Chicago Red Hots. At 6pm Club Room open giving you a chance to explore the maze before our SUNDAY MOVIE NIGHT features another thriller at 7pm.
A body painting station will be set up in the front bar for our GLOW PARTY this night. You take it off and paint it up and show it off in the dark. The glow paints are washable so it will come off easily later (if you don’t wear it off)
More Halloween fun on Monday when we host our annual ROCKY HORROR PARTY. It may not have anything to do with werewolves but you can’t beat the fun of watching this cult classic. Specially when we supply all the props you’ll need to “play along”. You do know how to do the Time Warp? The movie starts at 10pm.
Your last chance to take a bite out of Halloween will be at Tuesday’s TREATS ‘N TRICKS PARTY. The big costume parade early in the evening means lots of guys will be out, so we’ll do another contest at midnight. It’s the final night to enjoy the maze, so you know it will be busy. We’ll pretend there’s a full moon out tonight and everyone is a werewolf.
To add to your Halloween fun, we have stocked several treats for the season beginning with a couple of pumpkin flavored treats – O’Fallon’s Pumpkin Ale, made with real pumpkin meat and Breckinridge Nitro Pumpkin Spiced Latte. We’ve brought back 2 popular brews Schmaltz Death a hoppy black ale and 5 Rabbits Vida Y Muerte a season brew to celebrate the Day of the Dead. Both flew out of the cooler last year. Another seasonal treat is 2 Towns Cot In The Act, a tasty cider brew with apricots.
Give your Halloween a kick with Captain Morgan’s Jack-o-Blast a special spiced rum mix with pumpkin. Makes a killer shot or try it mixed. All these treats are here for a short time, get ‘em before they’re gone for another year like the maze.
Let me get the house decked out for Halloween and that maze in place and then I’ll fill you in on our 40th anniversary plans. Now get your costume ready for Halloween and get your butt in here for our Halloween in the Werewolf’s Den!
