Eat And Drink For Pink
Do your part to help support Breast Cancer Awareness Month by participating in the Lynn Sage Foundation's annual In Good Taste campaign.
You can choose from a list of more than 100 of Chicagoland's most-buzzed about restaurants, and donate at least $1 on your check. The promotion happens throughout the month and you can see the entire list of participants here.
You can also drink pink in honor of Lynn Sage at Lockwood and Potter's at the Palmer House Hilton. Both establishments are featuring the Bubble Gum Martini (Three Olives Bubble vodka, Triple Sec, ginger ale and Grenadine) in October for $12. Half of the proceeds benefits the charity.
Sensational cupcakery Sprinkles will have the Pink Ribbon Cupcake on offer Oct. 1-7. One hundred percent of proceeds from the strawberry cupcake topped with a pink sugar ribbon will benefit the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Women's Cancer Research Fund.
Also happening is a cocktail party for Bright Pink, an organization targeting young professional women. The event, which happens 8pm Oct. 7 at the Hard Rock Hotel, includes an open bar, desserts and a raffle. Get the tickets here. $60-$75. Also, an after-party occurs at HUB 51.
Elate manager Jordan Hammes is graciously donating all of his tips Oct. 9 when you order the Think Pink-tini (vodka, Chambord, lemonade), which comes with a pink ribbon. Proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.
And finally, it's time to pop some pink bubbly in the name of Bright Pink at NoMI's lounge. For every bottle sold of the $56 Louis Bouillot sparkling rosé, the restaurant will donate 10 percent of the proceeds to the organization.
