No rest for the wicked they say.  After a big 4th of July weekend, we are rushing up to another busy weekend at Touché.  It looks like this weekend will be all about butts.  Butts in slings, butts getting spanked and showing off those nice round butts for cash.   And butts on tiny bike seats, too. So much to bring to your attention, so let me get to it.




We start this busy weekend on Friday with CD4 Viral Social cocktail party at 8pm.  This Social is for all those poz guys and positive minded men to gather for fun and support.  We’ll set out a few light bites while the crowd enjoys our Cock&Tail Hour specials till 9pm.  We see a great group gather each month for this social and all are welcome to start their weekend with them.




Then at 10pm it’s M.A.F.I.A. CLUB NIGHT at the bar.  Each month the M.A.F.I.A. gang gathers here on Friday for cocktails and mingling with the crowd.  Then on Saturday they host a private play party where that butt in the sling thing happens.  You should come on by and meet the guys in the red shirts, they host a 50-50 raffle and welcome new players for their party the next night.

paddlesMore butt action on Saturday as our DUNGEON MASTER NIGHT will feature a spanking demo at midnight.  That’s not all as there is a Full Moon in the sky this night and you know that means I’ll be hosting a contest for the “hottest Full Moon” in the house.  After Timothy wraps up his demo with a couple nice rosy butts, we’ll line up guys on our stage and check out their butts too.  I’ll have a big cash prize for the winner (and you might find a nice butt to grab as well)

200milesSunday we’ll just keep the butt thing going.  First of all the big RIDE FOR AIDS is this weekend and our Team Touché/Leather 64TEN are set to make that 200 mile trek up into Wisconsin and back. All the riders will take off Saturday morning, returning on Sunday afternoon. Imagine all those butts on those tiny bike seats, hitting all the bumps in the road.  They’ll be nice and sweaty and ready for a good “rub down”.

Join me after 2pm at Chandler Park in Evanston to cheer our team and all the riders as they cross the finish line. It’s exciting to witness the crowds and bikers as they come in from the long ride. Plus our team will conduct their Big Raffle at the finish as their final fundraising effort for 2017 to benefit TPAN.   Tickets are still available at the bar through Saturday night with all prizes up to be given away have a value of $200 or more.

Beer Bust adwOnce everyone makes it back from the ride and the raffle drawings are done, we’ll head back to Touché for our SUNDAY BEER BUST.  Those dollar drafts of Bud & Bud Light will be just the ticket after pedaling a bike over 200 miles or just cheering them back.  Our AFTER THE BEACH PARTY should be in full swing then.ToucheAfterTheBeachRevised

Butts in the dark round out our weekend with our SUNDAY MOVIE NIGHT.   40 years ago Touché was just getting started but that summer there was something else that would endure all these years.  A little known movie opened that summer that captured the hearts and imagination of the country.  We stood in lines wrapped around the old McClurg Court theater to get a seat.  You can park your butt on a bar stool or a bench and relive the thrill all over again (many other cheap thrills in the dark, too)

Next week is our Mr Midwest Rubber 2017 Contest weekend.  I’ll post details on the website today and send that out next week.  With a prize pool of over $2,000 in cash and prizes, I believe we will have quite a few contestants.  Thinking of entering?  Pick up an application at the bar now.

Shifting gears back to our YEAR 40, we have a couple of fun  nights coming up in July.

Saturday July 22nd Touché will present our 70’s LEATHER NIGHT featuring some great music and saluting the leather “clone” look of the era.  Short cut off jeans, deigo t’s (they  weren’t called tank tops), mustaches and sideburns were all the rage. Let’s see if you can sport the “hot” look of the 70’s.

Then on Sunday July 23rd we’ll host an old favorite, a Touché SPLASH PARTY.  From 4-7pm you will get wet if you head to the Club Room.  Water balloons and water guns will be provided for this wild and wet event.  A Touché summer would not be complete without this one.

There’s lots of summer fun yet to come here at Touché.  Remember we are here every night ready to serve you.  Get your butt in here soon. (This weekend would be perfect)

We’re keeping that pride feeling going this week at Touché.  We’re proud to be gay and we’re even more proud to be American.  We’ll be showing off our pride with the Red, White & Blue all weekend to the 4th.

Hopefully you made it out to the big Gay Pride Parade last Sunday.  With guys coming to town for the big parade, we enjoyed some nice crowds at the bar every night.

Of course nothing could match the crowd at the parade, both in our leather/fetish contingent and the million folks lining the parade route from one end to the other.  There were no “dead” spots along the way, the sidewalks were packed even down along Diversey to the park.

group shotOnce again Chicago’s leather/fetish clubs banded together to line up our entry to the parade with many others joining the group, leathermen, women, puppies, rubbermen, bears and more were all represented. We had several local titleholders in the crowd current and previous Mr Chicago Leathers, Mr Midwest Rubbers along with our new Mr Chicago Bear and Chicago Cub.  There were many other titleholders from across the Midwest joining the group. I figured we had about 275 gathered before the parade stepped off but it looked like even more joined us by the time we got to move.  When we started to march, we were just west of the Red Line CTA tracks and the Ride with Pride train sporting a rainbow passed overhead to the cheers of all.

Once we made it to the end, we all hopped on board the truck we had rented and headed back to the bar for some cold beers and fresh grilled eats.  The bar packed up quickly and kept festive way into the night.

stepping offThanks to all our local clubs for sponsoring the group in the parade and the volunteers that took care of our group as we marched along.  A shout of thanks goes out Richard P and the Pride Parade committee and volunteers that got things in place for the big parade.  That’s a lot of work.

We should all also thank the CPD and CFD for taking care of everyone, keeping us safe during the day and even the Streets & Sanitation crews for cleaning up the mess once it was all over.  With that many folks out there, you can bet there was plenty left along the way.

Now it’s time to show off our American Pride and celebrate the birthday of the United States.  The holiday falls next Tuesday which means quite a few of you will have that Monday free, making it one long weekend.  We have a couple of fun nights planned for Sunday and Monday as well as the 4th.  So let me get to the details.

06-28-17wYou got to show your American pride by flaggin’ the Red,White & Blue, which is just what we’ll do on Friday.  Show off a red, white or blue (any shade) hanky and get a buck off your drinks.  You should also show it off at home, so we’ll raffle off American flag sets you can display at home.

It will be a GREAT AMERICAN BEAR NIGHT on Saturday.  Lot’s of hot bears in the house, our infamous Midnight Pizza Panic are to be found.  But we will also be raffling off tickets to Six Flags Great America during the night.  We know bears lover roller coasters and amusement parks.  If you haven’t made it up to Six Flags yet, this just might get you out there.

Beer Bust adwOur SUNDAY BEER BUST will be an All-American event.  We’ll be serving up cold drafts of Bud & Bud Light all day/night for just a buck.  But this day we’ll feature lots of classic American rock music all night, too!  Don’t forget our After The Beach Party in the afternoon with special prizes and eats.  Then there’s our Movie Night in the Club Room at 7pm, a great start to the big night ahead.

Since Tuesday is the 4th, you won’t be getting up early for work.  So come out and play Monday night at Touché.  We’ll host our RED, WHITE & BLEW PARTY this night featuring our annual Blow Job Contest at midnight.  The winner gets $50 cash.  Should be most interesting, come check it out!

Then on Tuesday, we’ll open at 2pm for an INDEPENDENCE DAY BEER BUST with a second day of dollar beers and sodas.  Of course we’ll have our All American weenies at 4pm, stop by before you head to the fireworks or join us afterwards, the Club Room will be open at 10pm.

Usually folks start complaining that summer is half over when we get to the 4th of July, but that’s far from the truth.  There’s still 2 whole months before Labor Day gets here and we have many more great nights planned at Touché.  Our 40th anniversary is not till November but we are hosting celebrations leading up to the big bash.

Just in July alone, we’ll note another 40th anniversary of Star Wars.  Plus we will revive our wild and wet Splash Party, host a 70’s Leather Night and more.  There’s a Full Moon on Saturday the 8th and Mr Midwest Rubber 2017 Contest are also set for July.  See, I’m keeping busy this summer, working to make it a big, fun one for you.

Mwr11x17_FinalwLook for updates to the Midwest Rubber Contest page on this website to be updated by week’s end.  Contestant applications are available right now at the bar, just ask your bartender for one.

Right now, let’s celebrate the Red, White & Blue at Touché.

We’ll be looking for you this weekend.
