Certainly by now, all four of my readers (Hey Mom!) have noticed some changes to my blog. Apparently something went awry with my previous layout and it no longer displays properly. I suppose a redesign was well overdue anyway. Maybe this time I'll start from scratch instead of searching for "premium" templates that are probably already installed on a hundred other blogs that no one reads. I'll continue to post free events, of course, but you can expect some design updates in the near future. Feel free to email me ( or comment on this post with encouraging feedback and/or sexual innuendos in the form of double entendres that may or may not be palindromes.

100 Best Party

I'm not down with this "check-in" craze that's currently being embraced by all of the social networks. I don't need people knowing where I am or what I'm doing. I got warrants! I can't have The Feds popping up when I least expect it. Of course I don't speak for everyone. If you're down with having people all up in your business, this is for you. Time Out Chicago and Foursquare are teaming up to offer exclusive deals that can only be accessed if you are awarded the Time Out Chicago "100 Best" badge on Foursquare. First up is the 100 Best Party at The Bedford featuring The Bedford Bloody cocktail and complimentary appetizers. Unfortuantely I'm not a big fan of Bloody Marys. The only things that I like bloody are my steaks, zombie movies, and boxing/MMA fights.

To unlock the badge you'll have to follow Time Out Chicago on Foursquare and check in to two (2) venues from their 100 Best list. Click HERE to see their 100 Best list. Technically you can RSVP before you receive your 100 Best badge, but you'll be required to show it in order to gain entry to the event.

CISC Holiday Party

The Chicago Interactive Social Club (CISC) is throwing a Holiday Party at The Underground on Thursday, December 8th. Usually these CISC networking events include free drinks for the first hour, light appetizers, and repeated violations of personal space. This time there are supposed to be a few "surprises" so perhaps they'll make things interesting.

Nevertheless I can assure you The Underground will be PACKED. You better get there well before 8 PM and get in line or else you might end up at the mercy of bouncers who take joy in seeing how long they can make you suffer. Of course that never works on me, due to my extreme will power. One time I was outside long enough for my pubes to freeze but I stuck it out. And yes, it was totally worth it when I walked in the club during last call.

There's no cover but make sure you RSVP for entry.

True story—prior to today I thought Black Wednesday was merely the name of a character in the Addams Family porn parody that I keep handy on my smartphone heard about from some unscrupulous pervert.

A Movember to Remember

John Allan's Chicago and Darren Brown are hosting an event for Movember at John Allan's penthouse man spa on Friday, November 18th. Guests can enjoy complimentary beer and cocktails as well as mini massages, manicures and hair cuts.

In case you weren't aware, during the month of November men all over the world grow out their woman-repelling mustaches to bring awareness to men's health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. While this is certainly for a good cause it unfortunately leads to a spike in false arrests of guys who closely resemble police sketches of rapists and Unabombers. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Movember's cause to raise funds for prostate cancer research.

Red Bull and Vodka

Premier Event Marketing (PEM) is throwing a party at Jbar featuring a FREE VODKA and RED BULL Cocktail Reception on Friday, October 14th! The cocktail reception only lasts from 10 - 11 PM so hopefully you'll have enough time to get trashed/pumped in time for DJ Stonerokk's epic performance. Apparently this DJ has some connection to Heidi Klum, George Clooney, and Drew Barrymore? Is that supposed to negate the douchiness of his moustache? Everyone who attends will also receive access to the exclusive afterparty at STAY Lounge!

Premier Red Bull Party
Friday, October 14th | 9:30 PM - 2:00 AM
Jbar Chicago | James Hotel
610 North Rush Street

Sebastian Grey 1801 Club

Sebastian Grey Clothiers is hosting an event at the illustrious Chivas 1801 Club on Friday, October 14th. I doubt this will be any different from the previous events that have taken place in that immaculate mansion, but who cares? It's impossible to go wrong with free scotch, cigars, and hors d'ouevres...unless you hate America! Freedom isn't free, but the valet parking is so get on the list and get ready to party!
