Just for the fun of it
It's midweek, you're stressed out and you need a little break. Whether it's a champagne-soaked soiree or a laid-back blues bash, we've got you covered tonight:
It's an all-girl affair at D.O.C. Wine Bar (2602 N. Clark St., 773-883-5101). The monthly Sheque Chicago Ladies' Night Out happens with free mani-pedi treatments as well as champagne cocktails and wine. 7-10pm. No reservations required. Free admission.
If you're up for hangin' out a little later, head to Krem (1750 N. Clark St., 312-932-1750), where deejays spin contemporary music and there's half price on appetizers, wine and bubbly. 9pm-2am. No cover.
Heading out right after work? Settle down at the sophisticated Le Bar (20 E. Chestnut St., 312-324-4000) with $14 martini flights that are paired with 'tini' bites. Guests get a trio of miniature martinis paired with bite-sized tastes such as smoked salmon and fried capers Napoleon; mini burgers and smoked chicken pizza with mushrooms and bell peppers. Free admission.
And things are always jumpin' at the South Loop's Reggie's Music Joint (2105 S. State St., 312-949-0120). The Wednesday night specials are $3 appetizers, $3 Stoli cocktails, $5 Stella and Hoegaarden drafts, and $5 Long Island iced teas and margaritas. Gary Gand's Pro Blues Jam performs at 8pm. It's also open-mic night, so blues or rock musicians bring your instruments! No cover.
