THE HO, HO, HO SEASON BEGINS AT TOUCHE’

Now that we’ve all stuffed ourselves on turkey and pumpkin pie, it’s time to get into the Christmas spirit.  There’s lots of holiday celebrations coming up at Touché beginning with our annual NIGHT OF 1,000 SANTA’S this weekend right on into our BLACK & BLUE NEW YEAR’S WEEKEND to start off 2018.  So gird your loins, and come get festive at Touché.

CD4SocialwThis first weekend begins with the monthly CD4 VIRAL SOCIAL on Friday.  Each month poz men and friends gather for fellowship and fun on the first Friday at Touché.  The Social begins at 8pm and is open to all.  It’s not just a chance to poz guys to meet by themselves. They welcome all to chat, have a drink, make new friends and gain strength from each other.

At 10pm on Friday those guys in the red shirts turn out for M.A.F.I.A. CLUB NIGHT.  It’s a handballers heaven when these guys are in the bar.  They also like to make new friends and playmates.  This night’s Club Night activities are just the first part of their weekend.  M.A.F.I.A. hosts a private play party on Saturday and if you want to “lend a hand” or get a sling spot, you’ll have to sign up during their Club Night.

Come on back Saturday a special holiday Bear Night tradition at Touché, our NIGHT of 1,000 SANTA’S.  It’s a Toys For Tots affair where everyone gets to play Santa.  Wear your own Santa hat or grab one at the door when you walk in and bring along an unwrapped toy to put under the tree at the bar.  Everyone that brings a donation will receive a ticket for our raffle for cool “Bearly Christmas” door prizes.  The big motorcycle parade up Western Avenue is the next day and we’ll deliver all the toys collected to the event.

As with  all our BEAR NIGHTS at the bar, you’ll find lots of bears and their admirers hanging out and cruising the crowd.  We’ll serve up our MIDNIGHT PIZZA PANIC and then raffle off prizes for those that brought toys to put under our tree. Let’s see how many Santa’s we can get at Touché this year.

Beer Bust adwGood news or bad, they are still our Chicago Bears and we will still; be here at noon on Sunday for you to watch the game.  At least you have our SUNDAY BEER BUST as a winner, with cold Bud & Bud Light drafts served up for just $1 all day long.  We also include sodas and shots of Pucker for a buck all day, too.  and no matter how well the Bears play, you can still get free Chicago Red Hot during the afternoon.

The Club Room will open at 6pm on Sunday.  If you’ve got plans to shop for your gift list, make a note to include a treat for yourself and head over for a cold one and our SUNDAY MOVIE NIGHT at 7pm.  Great flicks are featured on our big HD screen with Surround Sound.  We have a great line up of new releases and several fun holiday movies lined up this month.  Check out the line up at the bar.

After the movie we jump right into our FULL MOON PARTY & CONTEST.  There’s a nie big ol’ full moon in the sky this Sunday which means we’ll be looking for some nice “full moons” in the house.  Our Sunday Beer Bust continues which means you still get those $1 drafts all night.  We’ll add a shot special and a raffle before lining up some of those “full moons” at midnight for a contest.  The winner of our hottest full moon in the house contest will win $50 cash!  Sounds like an exciting way to cap off the weekend.

08-09a-017wNext week we have lots planned beginning with a huge Friday line up.  It starts with our monthly LEATHER WOMEN’S CRUISE in the Club Room at 8pm.  We let the gals gather to socialize and cruise just like you like to do.  We’ll open up the Club Room by 11pm for all to enjoy.

 

CHC logoThat’s okay because the guys from the Chicago Hellfire Club want to meet you at the bar.  They will be heading in at 9pm to meet guys that may be interested in their club’s activities.  Here’s your chance to learn more about CHC and maybe snag an invite to their Club House play party the next night.

Speaking of clubs, we’ll turn the tables on our local clubs.  Friday night is Club Night at Touché, and one of the clubs usual host a Friday night with raffles, demos and more.  To celebrate the season, we will host an ALL CLUBS HOLIDAY PARTY that Friday at 10pm.  Members of all the clubs are being invited to come and there will be tasty treats and more that all may enjoy.

12-06a-17w

Just like those TV offers “but wait! There’s more”  On the same Friday night that we host the Leather Women’s Cruise, Chicago Hellfire Club turns out and we invite all clubs to celebrate, there’s one more thing that should push this party over the top.  Once again it’s time to DECK THE BALLS, the annual fundraiser for the Groceryland Pantry.  There will be a couple of human Christmas Trees that will need some decorating. You can help by making a donation to the Pantry and you will get ornaments to hang on them.  Let’s see how creative you can get with decorating these “trees”.

paddlesMore holiday mischief is slated for Saturday.  It’s our DUNGEON MASTER NIGHT next Saturday which means another hot S&M demo at midnight in the Club Room.  Just in time for the a “naughty” boys in the house, our DM Timothy will present a spanking demo.  Spanking if a hot fetish and lots of guys like a good spanking.  Come see how to do it up best or why guys like it so much.  Timothy will use a variety of paddles and take you through the process of giving someone a good spanking.

Looking ahead, we have a night for cowboys, another round of Porn Poker and as we head to Christmas a salute to the “12 Lays of Christmas” and a visit from Santa for our Christmas Eve party.  Download our December calendar and stick it on your fridge to keep track of all events at Touché.

Then of course it we wrap up our YEAR 40 with a huge BLACK & BLUE NEW YEAR’S WEEKEND to launch 2018 at Touché.  Here’s your first heads up, tickets for this year’s New Year’s Eve Party will go on sale this weekend at the bar.  Ask your bartender to get your tickets, they make a great gift.  And don’t forget our bar t-shirts, tanks, caps, mugs, and sport bags when you think about the leathermen and bears on your gift list  The 40th Anniversary editions are limited, once they are gone, they’re gone.

One final notice this week.  The City’s Winter Parking Ban goes into effect at midnight on Thursday night/Friday morning.  Beginning December 1st and lasting to April 1st, parking on Devon Avenue east of Clark and on Clark Street north of Devon is prohibited from 3-7am.  Every day, snow or no snow.  We don’t want you to find your car gone after a fun night at Touché.  If the city lot across the street from the bar is full, park on Clark Street to the south or on Devon west of Clark and  take a short walk.

We’ll have the bar decked out for the holidays just in time for our Night of 1,000 Santa’s on Saturday, a house full of bears and Santa’s!

GEARING UP FOR THANKSGIVING

Late posting this week as I play catch up from a break after our hectic Halloween and 40th Anniversary celebrations.  Thanks to all that came out to help Touché mark our first 40 years.  Many more to come with your continuing support.   Here’s what’s planned as we head to Thanksgiving.

On tap this weekend before the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend are the kick off of our annual Harvest of Hope Food Drive for the Groceryland Pantry and GEAR NIGHT with BLUF/Chicago.

11-15-17w Friday night we begin our drive to stock up the shelves at the Groceryland Pantry.  From now till the end of December the old grocery cart will be parked by the front door for you to help load up week after week.  Pick up a few extra non perishable food items or personal care goods to drop in the cart.  Soup (don’t forget the crackers), tuna, peanut butter, fruit, cereal are just a few suggestions.  When you shop for your pantry at home, just double up on a few things and bring them along.

Everyone with a donation will receive a complimentary drink and be entered into a raffle for a Touché sport bag loaded with more 40th anniversary gear.

11-15a-17wThis Saturday get your gear on for a special GEAR NIGHT.  The BLUF/Chicago crowd will be on hand in their hot leather uniforms to mark the 20th Anniversary of BLUF.  They will be out in full force to celebrate their many years of getting guys into leather and uniforms.  If you haven’t met these guys, this would be a good time to find out what BLUF is all about.  All the more reason for you to get on your leather, rubber or uniform and join the party.  You’ll need your gear to hit the Club Room to mingle as there will be a dress code enforced.

Now that the messy weather is rolling in, let our bootblack take care of your boots.  And don’t forget to get on the list for our barber to trim you up topside, too.  They both get a bit busy these nights but there will be lots of hot leathermen and others in their gear to cruise while you wait.

Beer Bust adwIt looks our Chicago Bears are not going to be a big contender in the post season (and I was so hoping for another version of the Super Bowl Shuffle)  But we’ll still be here to cheer them on Sunday during our BEER BUST.  You can lose with $1 drafts of Bud & Bud Light served up all day.  Catch the game or just hang with Mario and the boys during our fun afternoons.  Don’t forget the free Chicago Red Hots, too.

Wrap up any chores or shopping and head in for our SUNDAY MOVIE NIGHT at 7pm in the Club Room.  A great crowd gathers for the movie, some even watch!  Either way the Beer Bust continues and it makes for a great start to a fun Sunday night at Touché.

A very short work week for you as the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend begins on Wednesday.  If you are heading out of town, be safe on your journeys and get back here for our festive holiday season to come.  Those of you hanging in Chicago let’s have a good time.  If you have friends form out of town, why not share your favorite party spot with them, there’s loads going on for the weekend.

11-22-17w

We jump right into the festivities on Wednesday night with what has become a huge night at Touché our weekly JOCKSTRAP NIGHT.  Before you stuff the turkey, stuff your jockstrap and come show it off with the rest of the guys at the bar.  Thanks to our buddies at Full Kit Gear, we’ll raffle off some jocks and some gift certificates for other under gear at their store in Andersonville.  We’ll offer free pants check and you get a buck off your beer or cocktails just for sporting a jock.

Thanksgiving is on Thursday and our crew will be stuffing themselves as well, but we will open at 8pm for our THROWBACK THURSDAY night at the bar.  Lots of great tunes fro the 70’s & 80’s along with hot video features from Bijou Video as well.  After a day of feasting, join us for an after dinner cognac, single malt or maybe a little coffee with something.  You may come on “stuffed” but after a drink or two, you just might get the urge for a “little more”.  The Club Room will open at 10pm.

The day after Thanksgiving is often referred too Black Friday with stores packed with shoppers.  We’ve got a better idea of what to do on Black Friday, come join the men of ONYX for a huge CLUB NIGHT.

suit up flyer 1wThis Friday, ONYX will collecting personal care items to donate to the Broadway Youth Center. They are asking all of you to help by bringing a bag of toiletry items with you.  Very simply, start with zip lock plastic bag (a gallon size will do nicely) and hit the local dollar store.  For $5-$10 you can drop a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, comb, shampoo, maybe a razor and shave cream for the older kids.  Don’t forget the gals, you can make it a bag with aa hair brush and feminine stuff instead.  ONYX will take all the bags collected to BYC for the kids they help out.

ONYX will show their appreciation for your support with lots of raffles and more like those jello shots they have each month.   With the holiday, you can expect a huge turnout of ONYX members and friends from across the Midwest, so you know it will be a huge crowd.  Don’t miss out!

Right after Thanksgiving it’s all about the rush to Christmas (our Night of 1,000 Santa’s is following Saturday) but Santa is not here yet. Which means you can get downright naughty during our RIPE PARTY on Saturday, November 25th.  The lights will be turned down low, the beats by our hot DJ Harry T will be deep and at midnight our Ripe Go-Go Dudes will hit the stages. It all adds up to the wildest night of the weekend.  (maybe the free clothing check has something to do with that, too)  Whatever, this is the night of the weekend you don’t want to miss.

Which brings us to our last SUNDAY BEER BUST of November.  If you headed out for Thanksgiving, you can catch up with your Chicago buddies to end your holiday with $1 beers & sodas.  Or maybe you stuck around and just didn’t get enough time for fun on your own, what with guests and family.  Make this your day/night to grab a beer or two and enjoy some “quality time” of your own before the work week begins.

Just to plan ahead for the season, here’s a few dates to note in December

Saturday Dec 2nd  BEAR NIGHT & our “NIGHT OF 1,000 SANTAS” a Toys for Tots event

Friday Dec 8th  CLUB HOLIDAY PARTY & “DECK THE BALLS”
