Okay…I was looking at my iCal today and noticed that Thursday, the 26th is about to be a CRAZY night for Chicagoans. Literally. I don’t want to take up anymore space, so I’m just going to list them out for your reading pleasure!

Come and watch the NCAA games and enjoy drink specials and a silent auction to benefit the Les Turner ALS Foundation. Keith Van Horne (from the shufflin’ 1985 Bears championship crew) will be guest bartending as well! A $10 donation earns you a wristband and access to alllll of the shenanigans.

The $30 tickets include a 3-hour open bar, and can be purchased by clicking here.
