Today's Nightlife: Is It About Music or Mixology?!


I'm trying to gauge people's minds on where they stand when going out on the town.

Is it about the music or the mixology?! The mix master or the mixologist? I feel as though the deejay culture—well at least in Chicago—has taken a back seat to Chicago's ever-growing cocktail culture. What used to be carefully curated musical programs at night spots are now focusing on craft beers and booze.
