First-Ever 'Liquid Chicago' Almost Here


If you didn't think you had enough boozy bashes to attend this summer, here's yet another.

Add the weeklong Liquid Chicago to the list because it'll have Whiskey Raw with the Naked Girls Reading, a pub crawl of hot dog stands and gangster hangouts, Pig + Cheese + Cocktails, and more.

Here's a rundown of exactly what to expect Aug. 9-13:

Pig + Cheese + Cocktails at Perennial Virant: Dine on swine and enjoy tasty Death's Door cocktails along with Wisconsin cheeses. Aug. 9. Ticket price info TBA.

Midwest Beer Confabulation & Tipplefest at Beckett's Public House: Liquid Chicago's inaugural season continues with a wide array of the Midwest's finest brewers and breweries assembled under one roof. Meet, discuss, and most important, taste some of the finest beers in the world, made right here in the heartland. 5-8pm Aug. 10. Ticket price info TBA.

Whiskey Raw - The Naked Truth About Whiskey at Everleigh Social Club: The confusing world of whiskey will be stripped down and presented raw by whiskey experts Marty Duffy and William Skelly, while the Naked Girls Reading recite whiskey passages. Learn about the history and characteristics of your favorite beverages, taste delectable libations and be tantalized by Michelle Lamour and Greta Layne. By the way, these chicks are REALLY naked when they perform. Check them out here (NSFW). 9pm Aug. 10. Get the $20 ticket here.

Franks, Felons and Fizzes: Explore three of Chicago's biggest fascinations: hot dogs, gangsters and booze. Hop aboard a trolley (or bus?!) through the streets of Chicago with the Untouchable Tours to visit Chicago's notorious gangster and criminal past. Along the way they'll stop for a few Chicago dogs and wash them down with Prohibition-era Templeton Rye cocktails. 1-4pm Aug. 13. Ticket price TBA.
