I have many questions. Even if we don't end up in boystown on Friday, I've never been there and I REALLY want to go before I leave this time!

If you have another area you want to go barhopping in, suggest it, otherwise come with us to boystown :D I don't know shit about Chicago nightlife, so I need a good suggestion on where to go, and so far the best/most specific one has been boystown.

YOU GAIS, I'm getting sick! I came home from Canada late last night, took vacation today to do laundry, and I have a full-on sore throat and fever chills setting in. :cry: :(

This is going to mess with my ASW so much.

Here is my breakdown of the main bars in boystown (starting from the south and going north on Halsted):

Lucky Horseshoe: gay strip club, dirty...fun, but dirty.
Spin: tends to skew younger, huge club but often times there is a cover for the shows (dancing is downstairs)
Scarlet: small bar, good music, no real dance floor but the whole bar turns into one at some point
Minibar: a little pretentious for my taste, but it just depends on who you are there with, attractive bartenders
Sidetrack: Largest gay bar in Chicago (one of the largest in the country), go on Sunday or Monday for showtunes, soooo many people.
DS Tequila: good margaritas and some decent food (a little pricy), tends to skew on the lesbian side (but a decent mix)
Roscoe's: suburban wonderland, young crowd, covers on Saturday, dance floor in the back, usually fun
Cocktail: no, just don't
Hydrate: more of a circuit club, late night bar, wooo meth?
Circuit: see cocktail
North end: sports bar, darts and pool

A couple of off halsted gay bars:
The Closet: lesbian bar until sidetrack lets out, then becomes after hours gay bar
Charlie's: country bar until sidetrack lets out, then becomes after hours gay night club
Berlin: mixed crowd dance club until sidetrack lets out, then becomes after hours gay night club

D-Hops that is fucking awesome and SO HELPFUL. Thank you!!! I definitely want to hit up boystown on either Friday or Saturday night. You should come out with us :mrgreen:

It seems like Spin and Sidetrack are definitely bars we should hit up, and Scarlet, DS Tequila, and Roscoe's sound cool too.

I considered this idea long enough to look up ticket prices. Not for $450. Wish I could be there, though.

The Closet is on Broadway. I walk by it every time I go to get groceries. It is also next door to a bomb cupcake place. They have a pancake and bacon cupcake.

It's called Phoebe's Cupcake. They're supposed to be moving a half block north sometime soon, but I don't know when.

Well, I am here until next Monday and plan on visiting at least a few. If you (or any other Chicago TLSer) want to come with, let me know! (:

Mr. Parcell, any upcoming running events in Chicago we should watch out for? I know it's a little early to ask, but a lot of the cool races here in the Bay Area get filled up months in advance and I don't want to miss out on the cool ones in Chicago

Kuma's is really damn good. Though I'm not sure I'd consider at as life-altering as others seem to think it is.

Anything up to and including a half marathon would be great, although I'm always partial to shorter ones that are fun to run (i.e. Bay to Breakers or Color Run).
