Bootgating Party

UPTOWN Magazine and MINI are sponsoring a "Bootgating" Party outside of Soldier Field before the Chicago Football Classic on Saturday, September 3rd. Bootgating is nothing more than tailgating with a MINI, as opposed to an enormous pick-up truck that was purchased solely to enhance the perceived size of your penis. Hopefully the food and drinks are complimentary but I'm not 100% sure about that. This event will also have special performances by MC Lyte and Doug E. Fresh. Be sure to bring your doorknocker earrings and Kangol hat.

UPTOWN and MINI Bootgating Party
Saturday, September 3 | 11 - 3:30 PM
Soldier Field - West Lawn (to the left of Gate #14)

Fashions Night Out with Shrine Haberdashe​rs

As far as I can tell this is the same event that I posted about below, except the start time is 7:00 p.m. instead of 6:30 p.m. There appears to be some trickery afoot but both of my sources are legitimate. Just plan on arriving by 6:45 p.m. and get ready for some cufflink browsing and whiskey sippin'.

Sebastian Grey Cocktail Kick-Off Party

Sebastian Grey's Fall Trunk Show is a 3-day affair beginning on September 8th, and what better way to kick things off than with a Cocktail Party! Attendees will enjoy pampering, courtesy of HALO [For Men], snacks, and complimentary cocktails courtesy of Spicebox, a Canadian spiced whisky whose name also doubles as a euphemism for vaginas!

Sebastian Grey Kick-Off Cocktail Party
Thursday, September 8 | 6:30 - 9:00 PM

47 East Oak Street

Since this is a retail event an RSVP doesn't appear be necessary.

Dining Social Happy Hour

On Monday, September 19th, Chicago Magazine is hosting a Dining Social Panel where various chefs, food bloggers, Maitre D's, and undocumented busboys will dish (pun intended!) about their social media strategies and such. More importantly, a Happy Hour event will take place immediately after the panel at Sub 51 (lounge below Hub 51) . Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be provided by Lettuce Entertain You. Unfortunately I have a job so I won't be able to attend the actual panel from 2:30 - 4:00 pm, but I'm all for the after party! I'm guessing you have to register for the panel in order to be on the list for the happy hour? Just note that open registration doesn't begin until September 6th (see link below).

CISC End of Summer Event

Chicago Interactive Social Club (CISC) is back at it with its End of Summer Networking event on Thursday, September 1st. I really don't need them to highlight the fact that summer is almost over! I'll be at the beach until the sand freezes! Then I'll make an igloo and sit in it and drink my Coronas, just like those damn commercials!  This event is going to be at Moe's Cantina River North and, as usual, free drinks are served for the first hour and they'll also have passed appetizers. Make sure you stake out by the kitchen if you actually plan on eating.

[Quick Post] Revlon Shape Your Life Social

Occasionally I'll just post the flyer without a hilarious text description when I learn about an event at the last minute or I'm jusy way too wasted to type. Enjoy!

If you're planning on doing a whole lot of nothing this evening (i.e. melting your brain with reality TV) you should check out Crescendo Apparel's A 'Pearfect' Fit Party. I guess this boutique sells jeans that are aimed at women who are shaped like the rook on a chessboard (just how I like em)? The event is free and includes cocktails, appetizers, contests, and prizes. Orange you glad I didn't use any fruity wordplay in this post? Whoops!

Chicago Luxury Beds Renovation Celebration

Chicago Luxury Beds was recently renovated and you're invited to the celebration on Wednesday, August 24th. Chicago Home & Garden editor, Jan Parr, will be on-hand to talk about something I won't hear because I'll be too inebriated to pay attention. Cocktails and tasty hors d'oeuvres will be served and there will be plenty of soft places to lie on, or get laid on, depending on how your night typically fares after a few drinks. FYI--passing out from too much drinking in a high-class bed store does not exempt you from waking up with an anatomically correct vagina drawn on your forehead with a permanent marker.

Fashion's Night Out

The Shops at North Bridge and Chicago Magazine are hosting Fashion's Night Out on Thursday, September 8th. This sexy shopping soiree will consist of model showcases, in-store events, giveaways, specialty cocktails and sweets! Guests will also have the opportunity to participate in the "Mall Obstacle Challenge"! Contestants must spin in circles until they're hilariously dizzy, and traverse a gauntlet of mall walkers, unrestrained hyperactive children, taser-happy mall cops,and annoyingly persistent kiosk workers soliciting flat iron demos and bedazzled cell phone cases! Whoever has the fastest time without vomitting wins!

Fashion's Night Out
Thursday, September 9th | 6 - 9 PM

GRIND: Spirits of the Night [Reminder]

On Friday, August 12th, Underground is hosting the GRIND: "Spirits of the Night" Exclusive Launch Party featuring complimentary cocktails, interactive mixing stations, GRIND dancers, grunge art, graffiti painters, chair massages, senior citizen cage fights, chain smoking meerkats, a handless banana peeling contest and a jacuzzi shaped like a vagina called a Vajuzzi. Okay, I made some of that up. Do you really think they'll have chair massages??

What the hell is GRIND anyway? It's apparently an espresso shot with premium rum blended with coffee extract, espresso, and other natural flavors. I don't really care for coffee but I'm generally willing to try anything with alcohol in it (e.g. Hennessy oatmeal, absinthe ice cream sandwiches, Goldschlager falafels, etc,.) Registration is REQUIRED and the invite is good for you and one (1) guest.

Boka Garden Party

Boka is hosting a free Garden Party with hors d’oeuvres and Squid Ink Saison, a beer brewed by their elite chef, on Sunday, August 7th! The point of this is to get people interested in the dinner and beer pairings that they'll have every Tuesday in August. This garden party is free but the pairings are $55 so choose wisely. I hear the next craft beer will be Shark Semen IPA. It really has a bite to it. 

Boka Garden Party

The Chicago Public Library is hosting its Library Lounge happy hour on Tuesday, August 2nd (TONIGHT). Yes, the library just reached a new level of sexy.

Lollapalooza Kick-Off Party

Guess and Nylon are throwing a Lollapalooza Kick-Off Party on Thursday, August 4th. You and a guest are invited to enjoy sweet treats, cocktails (Van Gogh Vodka and Dirty Blond Sparkling Wine Cocktails), live DJ sets, a photo booth and MORE! I'm hoping "sweet treats" is code for weed brownies or, my favorite, ecstasy muffins. Now THAT would be a party!

Stella Artois Summer Music Series 2011

The Stella Artois Summer Music Series continues on Wednesday, August 17th at Scout. This event features complimentary Stella Artois and an acoustic performance by Jefferey David Goldford. Ridiculous Super Bowl commercial aside, this beer is actually pretty good. If this doesn't make your butt-hole pucker I don't know what will.
