Hopefully all of you have enjoyed a great Christmas weekend and are ready to welcome in the coming New Year.  We here at Touché are exited as all get out to celebrate this entire next weekend.  One to cap off our big YEAR 40 and two to begin another big year.  There’s lots of big events planned for 2018.  But first we need to kick off the New Year in grand style.

grab12-27-17wI made a rundown of events last week, so let me be brief (yeah right) as I’ve got balloons, champagne and more to stock up for the big bash on Sunday.  You’re pretty much f@ckin’ off this week.  Lots of guys are hanging around town with many more heading in to make Chicago their New Year’s Eve party town.  So don’t let the  cold weather keep you at home.

Before getting to the weekend details let me remind you of a few ongoing specials.  First of all, our COCK&TAIL HOUR runs every weekday from 6-9pm.  We offer up $3 well drinks and a selected group of our domestic beers.  Plus you can get a buck off call drinks  and imports.  Planning a night out for dinner or a show?  Start by meeting your buddies or date here for a drink.JockstrapWedsProof

Come out later when the Club Room opens at 10pm.  Wednesday is our JOCKSTRAP NIGHT and is very popular. (Don’t fret we’ll keep the heat up)  Free pants check and $1 off cocktails and bottled beers for those sporting their jocks and raffles for jocks from Full Kit Gear, guarantees this to be a fun night.

ThrowbackThurswThursday is all about the “good ol’ music and vids”.  Our THROWBACK THURSDAYS features lots of great music from the 70’s & 80’s.  It could be old disco beats or a bit of funk, but always music you love to hear.  And we feature some of the classic films from Bijou Video with hunks like Bruno, Jack Wrangler or Al Parker to name a few.  Another good night at Touché.

Then we’ll blow the doors off the house with a huge BLACK & BLUE NEW YEAR’S WEEKEND, lots of horny dudes, great music and fun every night through New Year’s Day!12-27a-17w

ONYX CLUB NIGHT on Friday gets the weekend rocking.  They must have had an idea that the temps would plummet this week as they are hosting a UNION SUIT PARTY.  In keeping with our black & blue theme, they are encouraging guys to come out in a black or blue union suit.  Yes they do make them in colors other than red or white.  Whatever color your union suit is, you should be in it in this weather.  Just come prepared to show it off with ONYX.

Saturday night we’ll get all nice and steamy and RIPE.  The lights will be down low, our DJ Harry T will play a deep set and at midnight, our hot go-go dudes will hit the stages to entertain. These guys love to make the crowd happy.   Our monthly RIPE PARTY is always a hit and with everyone out to celebrate the season, this one will be over the top.

The main event comes Sunday with our 41st Annual BLACK & BLUE NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY.    It all begins at 9pm with a huge buffet to keep you fueled on into the night. We’ll play a few games and have a couple of raffles as the crowd builds to the magic hour of midnight.  That’s the champagne pops and the lights go out for a real down and dirty good time Touché style.  We’ll have plenty of party favors and glow sticks so you can make merry and find hairy in the dark.

Tickets for New Year’s Eve are on sale at the bar now for just $10. Purchase a ticket ahead of time and you get a free drink and entry for a drawing for a Mr Chicago Leather 2018 Contest weekend package valued at $75.  Only ticket holders are in the running for this prize.  Otherwise, entry for New Year’s Eve will be $10 with no extras.  So it pays well to buy your tickets before Sunday.

Plan ahead for New Year’s Eve and be safe wherever you go.  The CTA offers rides for a penny.  Take public tans to get here, there’s 4 bus routes that pass our corner. Stuff a $20 in your wallet for the cab ride home.  Remember the winter parking ban on Clark St north of the bar and on Devon begins at 3am.  You don’t want to leave and wonder where your car is.

DAVE.ANGELOThe party’s not over, we’ll be back at noon on Monday, New Year’s Day for our “recovery” HUNGOVER & HORNY BEER BUST.  All day long you may enjoy $1 drafts of Bud & Bud Light, sodas and a maybe the hair of the dog Pucker Shots.  There’s lots of college bowl games which we’ll tune in on our screens.  We’ll layout lots of Chicago Red Hots with all the trimmings ’cause you do need to eat.  The Club Room will open at 6pm for a special holiday MOVIE NIGHT screening at 7pm.  And to cap it all off, there’s FULL MOON out this night.  So you know, I’ll be there hosting a FULL MOON PARTY & CONTEST with a $100 cash for the hottest full moon in the house.  I couldn’t have planned a better start to 2018.

One more week for the Grocery Cart by the front door.  You’ve been great at dropping in donations of non-perishable food items for the Groceryland Pantry.  Definitely with this cold snap, soups are in high demand.  Broth, creamy soups, all kinds welcome and remember some crackers too.  Let’s load it up big, guys.

Okay, not so brief, but there’s a lot going on this week.  Just get your ass in here and join the fun.  More news for January including a Tom of Finland screening party, our first BEAR NIGHT of 2018 and MCL2018 to get us started.  I’ll fill you in on details next week.  We’ve got a few balloons to blow here.

HAPPY NEW YEAR from all the guys at Touché!

The countdown to Christmas culminates this weekend when the “Big Guy” stops by Touché while making his rounds on Christmas Eve.  We know many of you may be heading “home” or elsewhere for the holiday, but many others are “coming back” to the Windy City.  We’ve got lots planned this weekend to make things “festive” and then on into the New Year.  Lots to cover, so let’s hit it.

12-20-17wLet’s get all Nice & Naughty this weekend.  Since Santa will be here on Sunday, you can plead your case with him.  Taking another Club Night break, we’ll host another of our popular PORN POKER PARTY’s on Friday.  Who doesn’t want some fresh porn?  Not like your Aunt is going to gift you some.

We’ll hand out playing cards all night and give you multiple chances to play and win some hot XXX DVD’s from our friends at Grab Magazine.  I’ve got a huge box with about 80-100 titles to choose from.  You could win a last minute stocking stuffer for your horny buddies or a gem for you to keep for yourself.

This Saturday night come on back for our “12 LAYS OF CHRISTMAS”.  I’ll be hosting a contest at midnight where 12 guys will get a chance to win prizes, including tickets to our big Black & Blue New Year’s Eve Bash.  Just what does this contest entail?  Well, I’m not spilling the beans, you’ll just have to be here to see what they have to do win.  It will be fun and crazy, what else would you expect at Touché.

It’s time to give up, all the shopping and running around, Sunday is Christmas Eve and if you haven’t got it wrapped, baked or sent by now, just let go and relax at our SUNDAY BEER BUST.  We’ll be here all day long serving those cold Bud & Bud Light drafts for a buck all day and all night.

Thanks to Steven F for keeping an eye on me last week when I mentioned the Chicago Bears’ game last Sunday when they actually played on Saturday.  I doubled checked the schedule and the Bears are playing this Sunday so come join us for the game.

If you’re dashing like crazy this day, better plan to pull up for our SUNDAY MOVIE NIGHT at 7pm in the Club Room.  We have fun holiday feature you may not have seen before, and of course those $1 beers all night.

What’s that noise on the rooftop?  As promised Santa will be stopping by Touché for our CHRISTMAS EVE PARTY on Sunday night. Lots of treats and presents from Santa for all the boys good or naughty (He usually keeps a paddle handy for these visits, just a warning)  Pull out your cell phone and I’ll snap a picture of you on his lap or across his knee.  We’ll be here all night.

Then on Monday Christmas Day, Touché will open at 8pm with the Club Room opening at 10pm just in case you’ve been real good this season.  Time to get back to your naughty side.

All next week should be wild as many guys take the week between the two holidays off to enjoy the season.  Remember Touché opens at 5pm during the week with our COCK&TAIL HOUR specials from 6-9pm weeknights.  The Club Room is open every night, so take advantage of the free time and indulge in some midweek fun.

Before you know it, we’re up to our big BLACK & BLUE NEW YEAR’S WEEKEND.  Our great DJ Harry T will be playing the tunes all weekend with 4 big nights right on to New Year’s Day.

12-27a-17w What better way to wrap up 2017 than to have an ONYX CLUB NIGHT on next Friday.Somehow they figured out that cold snap would hit next week, so they will host a UNION SUIT night, let’s see if you can find a black or blue one to wear.  Whatever color your suit is, you know ONYX will pack the house and do all they can to show everyone a god time.  Jello-shots and raffles are just part of the fun.  It will be hot night at Touché.

grab12-27-17wWe’ll keep things steamy on Saturday with our monthly RIPE PARTY.  The lights will be down low, the music will be deep and at midnight our hot go-go dudes hit the stages to entertain.  You know these parties are always  hot, lots of guys, lots of fun.  Maybe that’s because we offer free clothing check.  You may want to save yourself for NYE but maybe you can handle a good time this night as well.

Which brings us to the big event, our 41st Annual BLACK & BLUE NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY on Sunday.  The party starts at 9pm and will feature a huge buffet to get you ready for the big night.  I’ll host a fun contest or two in anticipation of the midnight hour.  And of course lots of party favors and a champagne toast as we countdown to midnight.  Then the party makes a sharp turn to crazy as the lights go out. (Not to worry, I’ve stocked up on glow sticks)  Things will got bump in the dark, just like you like it.

Tickets for this big bash are on sale at the bar right now.  A ticket gets you entry, a complimentary drink to start your night and puts you into a special drawing for Mr Chicago Leather 2018 weekend package. (no ticket, you are not in the running)  So it makes sense to get a ticket, pick up yours this weekend.  If you’re going away for Christmas but coming back for New Year’s Eve, get your tickets now.  A limited number of presale tickets are available and you shouldn’t trust they won’t sell out before next weekend.

Not ones to say “uncle” we’ll be back here and ready for you on Monday New Year’s Day for our “HUNG OVER & HORNY BEER BUST”   We’ll tune in all the college bowl games to see what teams make it to the championship contest next week.  Yes, we’ll be serving up $1 drafts, sodas & Pucker shots all day to help you recover.  Maybe a Bloody to get you restarted?

The Club Room will open at 6pm for a special holiday MOVIE NIGHT at 7pm. And if that is not enough, our first FULL MOON  PARTY of 2018 will commence at 10pm with raffles and more, topped off with a “Shoot the Moon” contest at midnight with a $100 cash prize to the winner.

Whew! That’s a lot coming up these next couple of weeks.  And that’s just a start for 2018.  Of course the Mr Chicago Leather 2018 Contest weekend will be the event of January, but there’s plenty more planned to keep you from getting cabin fever.  (Weekend packages are on sale now at Brown Paper Tickets)  Have you heard about the Tom of Finland movie?  It opens in Chicago January 5th and Touché will be hosting a post screening party after the opening show.  Just one of the  great events coming up after the holidays.  I’ll keep you posted.

The old grocery cart is still parked by the front door till  New Year’s Eve.  I wanted to pass along news that the $600 plus that was raised at the Deck the Balls 4 event was matched by a meat supplier and the Pantry has loads of hams and meat for all their clients holiday dinners.  I loaded out 4 cart loads of donations last week with tons of peanut butter and oatmeal, just in time to restock the shelves.  For this last big push, Lori is asking for canned fruit, mandarin oranges, peaches, fruit cocktail to round out their supplies. I know we can count on your help.

Let me get this posted and out, I’ve still got a few presents to pick up before the weekend gets here.  If we won’t be seeing you this weekend, Merry Christmas from all of the staff here at Touché.  The rest of you, we’re looking to wish holiday greetings when we see you (soon we hope)
