Give Me a FAIR Shot

Head over to Province Restaurant on Tuesday, 2/1/11, to try FAIR, the new line up of "Fair Trade certified premium spirits". Enjoy a complimentary cocktail infused with FAIR Goji or Cafe Liqeur, or leave your daintiness at the door and chug a dirty martini with FAIR Quinoa Vodka.

Aquarian Night Out!

Heaven and Hell @ The Fifty/50

The Fifty/50 is teaming up with Metromix and the Red Eye to throw a Heaven and Hell Party with a themed costume contest and free alcohols on Friday, 1/28/11 @ 8pm! Whether you're a fastidious religionist or an unapologetic sinner (i.e. most of you) this is the party to go to. Of course I wouldn't post this if free food and alcohol weren't involved. There will be an open bar sponsored by Absolut with free cocktails and "Heaven" and "Hell" mini-burgers from 8 - 9pm. I heard the Heaven burgers are hand-made by the personal chef of St. Peter and the Hell burgers are actually Arby's sandwiches. See more details below...

Taste My Heinie

Heineken and Mystic Celt, the Irish pub in Lakeview founded by a secret cult of clairvoyant leprechauns, are teaming up to throw a Heineken Draft Tasting party. Free beer AND an appetizer buffet sounds like a winner to me, but don't get sassy with the leprechauns. They carry switchblades and they're not very tall so they will aim for your crotch. Stay on your toes...or get on your knees to make it a fair fight.

Hit the G-Spot

The Chicago Dramatists have a new play coming out called "Bordello", and they're celebrating with a night of free drinks and hors d'oeuvres at the G Boutique in Bucktown. G Boutique is a place where ladies can stock up on lingerie, erotica, sex toys, videos, office supplies and other sexy goods with out the weird, sleazy atmosphere of a typical men's sex shop. Make your way to G Boutique to cavort with the cast of the show and buy something erotic while you're there. All proceeds benefits the Chicago Dramatists. This event is free but they'll take donations at the door if you're in a giving mood (sexually?)

Celebrate Waitangi - The New Zealand Wine Fest

The Kenmore Live Studio series will host a show in honor of Waitangi Day, the New Zealand holiday for [click here to find out what it's about] on February 5th, 2011. Of course this wine fest shouldn't be confused with the New Zealand Whine Fest, when scores of New Zealanders ran outside with torches and pitchforks to protest the relocation of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" [mostly true story].

Culinary experts from Sunda will prepare several dishes paired with various sexually curious wines and share them, along with recipes and tips, to everyone in the studio audience (must be 21+ to attend, duh). The entire event will also be streamed live on Facebook so try not to get so drunk that you pass out and wake up with a scrotum drawn on your face with a permanent marker. Waitangi brings the frat boy out of everyone. See RSVP and additional info below.

Fire and Ice

The Dana Hotel is throwing a party on Friday, January 14th to celebrate the opening of the Ice Bar in the Vertigo Sky Lounge. Not familiar with Vertigo Sky Lounge? It's the super sexy indoor/outdoor rooftop lounge on top of the Dana. While most sidewalk and rooftop patios are closed for the next several months Vertigo is wide open and ready for business, just the way Charlie Sheen likes it.

Head over to the launch party and warm yourself internally with the hour-long hosted champagne bar. In addition to free bubbly, Vertigo will also provide faux-fur blankets, robes and firepits to ensure that you're as a warm as a mistress in Vladimir Putin's love nest.

A Wet Dream Come True

LUSH Wine and Spirits in University Village is having its 5th Anniversary Party on Friday, January 14th! That's right, a liquor store is throwing a party with free booze! This event is absolutely free so expect it to get crowded like the Red Line at rush hour before a Cubs game with a Dave Matthews Band performance.

Blokes and Booze

Blokes and Birds is throwing a party to celebrate the new season of You're Cut Off! This is apparently another dumb reality show on VH1. I wonder what else VH1 has in store for us this year? How about Homelessly in Love starring Ted Williams, America's favorite vagabond?

Sponsors of this event include Absolut Wild Tea, Louis Glunz Wines, Evan Williams Kentucky Bourbon and Sarah Palin's Moose Juice (banned in all 50 states). Sounds like a winner!

Manliness Squared

You know what's manlier than smoking a cigar and drinking scotch? That's actually a really good question. Perhaps taming a dragon and catching a Great White Shark with your bare hands and then using the dragon's fire breath to flamebroil the shark would be slightly manlier, but no one has accomplished that task without the heavy consumption of LSD.

HALO [FOR MEN], the modern man's grooming lounge, is previewing an exclusive new line of menswear from Sebastien Grey Clothiers.  More importantly there will be plenty of 12, 18 and 25-year old Scotch from Chivas, appetizers and cigars to ensure that you have enough props to reenact your favorite scene from Mad Men.

Classy and Cheap

This isn't something that I'm going to do all the time but going forward if I come across a great deal (i.e. coupons for the breakfast buffet at the strip club) I might be inclined to share it. Mamapedia, another one of those shared deal sites like Groupon, BuyWithMe and LivingSocial, is offering an AMC Gold Experience™ Ticket for only $4! The Gold ticket allows you to see any movie at any time at any AMC theater without having to dip in your child's college fund to afford it!

Do you know how much it costs to see a movie downtown at the AMC theaters? $11.50! Do you know what you could ask an illegal immigrant to do for $11.50?? The possibilities are limitless! Usually I can get AMC Gold tickets for $8, which is a great deal in itself, but this discount is BANANAS! Of course it's limited to 1 ticket per person but if you want to save some money you should get on this.

Cupcake Fetish

No, this post doesn't involve alcohol but it still has the next best thing--CUPCAKES! It might not be a far stretch to say cupcakes are the new Air Jordan sneakers. They come in all types of colors, everybody wants them and you can lose your life for a pair. These days you can eat them in boutiques, you can buy them off of trucks and you can shoot them directly into your bloodstream to achieve dessert nirvana intravenously.

The California-based cupcake chain, Sprinkles, is giving away samples of its new flavor, German Chocolate, on Tuesday, 1/11/11, from 7 - 9 pm. I probably won't make it to this one but let me know if they have some Hennessy or malt liquor cupcakes. I need those gangsta sweets. RSVP HERE!

Free Drinks @ The Southern on 1/11

The Southern--Bucktown's "kickass bar with comfort food"--is having a liquor celebration for all of its faithful Twitter junkies and Facebook philanders. Since this place is called The Southern I assume they'll be serving some of that Sizzurp aka Lean aka That Purple Stuff that's all the rage down south. You can head to their Facebook page to RSVP.

Get ready for yet another Dewar's Scotch Tasting! This one is at Cityscape Bar in the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza. Dewar's is cool and all but I'm waiting for Skol Vokda to have a tasting.

Competition in the shamefully cheap vodka market is about to heat up!
