Michigan Ave Mag Holiday Party

Back away from the penny slots and get ready to get pretty sloshed! That was awful, I know. Michigan Avenue Magazine is having its In the Red Holiday Celebration on Thursday, 12/16/10 from 7 - 10pm at the Horseshoe Casino. I know what you're thinking, "The Horseshoe Casino ain't in the city fool!" You're right, but guess what? Shuttles will be available to transport you and the drunk cougar or sugar daddy that you hook up with, to and from the event.  I've received intel indicating that there's a free shuttle that departs at 6pm on Thursday from Tavern on Rush. It then departs Horseshoe at 9 or 11pm to come back to the city. Remember to Dress to Impress! RSVP and additional details below...

You're Welcome!

Apparently 2010 was a really good year for BASH EVENTS and now they want to thank you for it! How so, you ask? With FREE BEER, FREE CALL DRINKS and a FREE FOOD BUFFET! Usdaiasdfljksduwerad~:)...whoops, I'm sorry. It's hard to type in the midst of an orgasm. Head over to Benchwarmers in Wrigleyville on Thursday, December 16, from 7 - 9pm and let the fun begin! It seems like everyone in Wrigleyville had a good year. Oh wait, nevermind. Maybe next year, right?

(Good for 4 people!)

Do it for the Kids

Casey Moran's is having its Annual Customer Appreciation Party to give an awkward high-five to all of its loyal patrons. Make your way over to the sparsely populated neighborhood of Wrigleyville (today is SARCASM DAY!) on Thursday, December 9th, from 7 - 9 pm to gorge on appetizers and libations. Oh wait, there's one caveat. You'll have to pay $5 at the door or donate a new toy to get in. I don't know why the toy has to be new. Teddy Ruxpin is hotter than all the new crap these kids are playing with today! Real talk! Normally I only post free events but this one is is cheap and it's for a good cause. Proceeds will benefit The Children's Memorial Hospital. You know iThug loves the kids...kinda.

Wine and Dine at BOKA

"It smells like purple with the slightest hint of asbestos"
BOKA Restaurant is having a FREE wine tasting with complimentary appetizers on Tuesday, December 7th. They actually do this on a monthly basis so make sure you add it as a recurring event on your calendar. They'll have a contest where the person who has the most correct guesses during the blind tasting will receive a $100 gift certificate. I also heard that Don Imus will unveil a new bottle of cabernet sauvignon from his winery in Napa Valley called, you guessed it, "Napa Headed Hos". This is a STAY CLASSY EXCLUSIVE (not really)!

1729 N. Halsted
Call 312-337-6070 to RSVP
(I hear that you can just show up without RSVPing and still participate so do whatever helps you sleep at night...)

At first I thought this event was called "Winterscape" and I was confused because it is well known that winterscaping is the act of trimming your "nether hairs" into winter-inspired designs like snowflakes and christmas trees. Fortunately, I was mistaken...

Vitaminwater is sponsoring a sexy party at the W Hotel on Friday, 12/3/10. Hip Hop extraordinaire Lupe Fiasco will be on the turntables and there should be plenty of nutrient-enhanced tap water for you to drink after peeing the night away due to too many UV Vodka (hooray for liqour sponsors!) and tonics.  Why are you still reading this? Click the link below and RSVP NOW!

My Favorite Cologne is Scotch

I'm making a list and checking it twice:

Booze - CHECK
Food - CHECK
Blues - CHECK
Expensive perfume to distract the ladies from my booze smell - CHECK

Happy Holidays!

Inebriated Inception

Time Out Chicago is sponsoring a screening of INCEPTION along with free booze, appetizers and music at Room 1520, one of the hottest new lofts in the West Loop! Is this a dream?
