Things to do for March 21, 2013

The Weekender

Bourbon, Skee-Ball and Fast Bartenders

The weekend is now in full bloom.

Thursday
Penthouse Bourbon and a DJ Throwdown
SOUNDS NICE

Penthouse Bourbon and a DJ Throwdown

Things start off easy at this dark little perch’s new weekly party. That is to say, with you holding a glass of bourbon and listening to some acoustic rock. By night’s end, however, you’ll be rocking hard to various DJ sets. Though bourbon will still be there for you.

Thursdays starting Mar 21, 7pm-close, Drumbar, 201 E Delaware Pl, 18th Fl, 312-924-2531, RSVP here

Friday
Getting Down with Some Fab 5 Freddy
CELLULOID BRIDGES

Getting Down with Some Fab 5 Freddy

In early ’80s New York, anything was possible. Break dancing. Scratching. Fab 5 Freddy. Kangol hats. Unless you were there, it’s hard to explain. So this CD-release dance party for Change the Beat: The Celluloid Records Story lets you make up for lost time.

Saturday
Cocktails, Dinner and Midnight Bubbly
DINING HAUL

Cocktails, Dinner and Midnight Bubbly

Dinner parties are great. You get to wear that dinner-party attire. You get to drop a few well-timed bons mots. You get to eat. In this case, Asian fusion. Then there’s an after-party. Okay, frankly, that’s the main reason to throw a dinner party.

Sunday
These Girls Want to Make You a Drink
SHAKEN AND STIRRED

These Girls Want to Make You a Drink

Lady bartenders make the best martinis. Wait, no. That’s sexist. Anyway, here’s the point: you’re going to be doing a lot of drinking at this competition to crown the fastest female barperson in Chicago. It’s an open bar. Refills should be quick.

Wednesday
The March Madness of Skee-Ball
SKEE SEASON

The March Madness of Skee-Ball

Early warning. The first 64 people who register for this skee-ball tourney will be able to compete for free Bulls tickets and, of course, glory. But mostly for Bulls tickets. Though that’s not to say you couldn’t get an office bracket pool going and win something there, too.
