Oh yes, there will be turkey. And gravy, and stuffing, and perhaps the odd beet. But first, there is
theonce-a-year opportunity to party like it's 1699.
Back Track at Rednofive
Buckled hats and shoes are not the sort of "retro" garb the hosts of this old-school '80s party had in
mind when they offered half-off cover for anyone in throwback costumes. Still, the case could be made that
you haven't really lived until you've popped and locked in Puritan attire.
Spreaking of retro, Thanksgiving is the time to reflect on the hard work of our forefathers. So we
think partying to a few sets by one of the originators of Chicago House, DJ Frankie Knuckles, seems apropos.
GOOD FOR THE SOUL
Rebirth of the Funk at Sonotheque
At this funk and soul celebration, the $5 cover is waived if you email them and tell them you're coming.
Rumor has it this was the same way they worked it at Plymouth Rock.
The celebrity DJ's monthly stand at the Hotel Sax lounge is still going strong. Women in particular love the
way she throws down, and since you've always respected their collective wisdom, you may want to see what
Sam's got in store for her Black Wednesday party.
The Giving Tree at Sheffield's
If you'd rather skip hardcore beats entirely, attend the fundraiser at this Wrigleyville barbecue and brew
temple. You receive raffle tickets for prizes like tickets to the Cubs home opener each time you order
a drink. So we really like your odds.
