04-12-17wLots going on at Touché again this weekend which has me just a tad behind in getting ready for it.  No sweat, we’ll be ready for you to join us.  So what’s up?  Here’s the dirt!

04-12a-17wThe Club Room will open at 8pm on Friday as we welcome our sisters in leather for our monthly Leather Women’s Night at Touché.  I mentioned this before, you guys have had Touché for 40 years to gather, cruise and meet other guys that like some kink in their sex.  This year, we want to do the  same for the many leather women and those curious gals out there.  There’s no other spot for women to me others into kink in town. So for this one night (the second Friday of each month)  we’re turning over the Club room for a few hours to network and make connections just like the guys have been doing.

Last month saw a good turnout and we are expecting even more women to come check out the party.  Don’t sweat it guys, we’ll open the Club Room to guys later on in the night so you can get your cruise on too.

2017 Team Touche Fundraiser Dates Poster-1wBesides, our Team Touché/Leather 64TEN is hosting a “LEATHER EXTRAVAGANZA” this Friday in the main bar at 10pm.  These guys have been hard at work training for the 200 mile Ride For AIDS in July.  By training, I mean they are pedaling their bicycles for hours each week now to be in shape for the big ride.

The Ride For AIDS is a huge benefit for the programs at Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) with several teams across the city training and raising funds.  Each rider must individually raise $1,000 to participate.  And the our Team has set an ambitious goal, topping their accomplishment last year.  I can’t put my finger on the total they raised last year but they were one of the top 5 teams in the ride when it came to funds raised.  (I’ll make sure to have that number on Friday at the benefit)

So our Team is busy training and fundraising and well on their way to breaking last year’s effort.  They have several more fundraising parties scheduled including our big cook out Memorial Day.  They also are hosting huge raffle at the closing ceremonies in July.  You can buy tickets now (you don’t have to be present to win, but why not be there and cheer them as their ride comes to an end?)  I understand that each of prizes for this big raffle are ALL valued at least $100 each.  Told you it was a big raffle.

In the meantime, I hope you will come out this Friday and support their efforts, buy some raffle tickets (lots of great prizes this night, too!) specials on Smirnoff flavored vodkas and more.  Lot easier than pedaling a bike 200 miles in the hot July sun.

BLUFChicago White - Black BkgdwTime to gear up guys, Saturday is our monthly GEAR NIGHT with BLUF/Chicago.  It’s the one night of the month we enforce a dress code for admission to the Club Room.  Leather, rubber, uniforms, boots, jocks, get the idea?  Get it on and join us for a fun night at a leather bar.

Our bootblack slave angie will be on duty in the Club Room to take of what’s on your feet.  Philip will be busy in the front bar offer free buzz cuts, taking care of what’s on your head.  Tip them both, they work hard.

Stop in Sunday for our BEER BUST, $1 drafts Bud & Bud Light all night long.  Now that the Cubs & Sox are playing and the Bulls & Blackhawks are in post season playoffs, there’s bound to be a game or two you’ll enjoy on our screens with a cold one.  We even offer up free Chicago Red Hots during the afternoon.

Then there’s our SUNDAY MOVIE NIGHT in the Club Room at 7pm.  Same great deal on the beer and the latest Hollywood releases on our big HD screen with Surround Sound.  So why are you sitting at home alone?

Of course that’s a good question every night.  All week long we are ready to serve you here at Touché.  There’s our COCK&TAIL HOUR from 6-9pm Mondays thru Fridays.  We offer $3 well drinks and select domestic beers and take a $1 off call and imports.  Play with us on Monday Game Nights, cruise in your leather on Hardcore Cruisin’ Tuesdays, show off your jock on Jockstrap Wednesdays and enjoy great music and porn form the 70s & 80s during our Throwback Thursdays.  The Club Room is now open nightly at 10pm.  What’s holding you back?

Looking ahead, there’s plenty more coming in April.  ONYX is hosting a cowboy night next Friday.  We have a great night of live music with another edition of our BEAR ALL show.  Then there’s the “loads of fun” LEATHER EYE FOR THE PREPPY GUY contest to benefit the Groceryland Pantry.  It’s April, a little wet (what else would you expect?) and looking like winter is behind us.  So get out and get in here.  We’d love to see you soon.

04-05-17wAnother 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!

HardcoreLeatherCruisinTuesdayProofTonight 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.

JockstrapWedsProofWe’ll keep it warm and toasty on Wednesday for our Jockstrap Night with Full Kit Gear.  Show off those sexy jocks, we’ll check your clothes for free and give you a buck off your drinks.

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

CD4 FIRST FRIDAYS FLYER 2nd QtrwThen 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.

MAFIAlogo_lgIf 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.
