Since my last post was a bit of a Debbie Downer, today I have decided to write about the exciting things going on in my life!
Tonight I am going to the "Night of 100 Drag Queens" at Sidetrack, a gay bar in Chicago.
One of my best friends works there, so he got me a ticket. It benefits Equality Illinois, which is an organization that works for equal rights for members of the LGBT community in Illinois.
This is the 17th annual "Night of 100 Drag Queens", which 'showcases the talents of both amateur and seasoned performers in a hilarious revue filled with wild, wacky and outrageous routines.' I have never been before, but I have heard that is is hilarious and am so excited!
Don't worry, I will take LOTS of pictures!
One of my friend's is having a pre-party starting at 5:00 PM, then we're going to another bar at 7 because they're previewing their new menu for dinner, then heading to the show at 8. I'm really excited for the pre-party at 5 though... this friend is a pretty high-up VP at Diageo, which is the company that owns almost every major drink brand in the world (think Bailey's, Smirnoff, Johnny Walker, Guinness, Captain Morgan, Cuervo, Tangeuray, Dom Perignon, Ketel, Ciroc, etc.). He gets a RIDICULOUS "allowance" of booze each month, and always has the most ridiculously stocked bar. He has been known to break out $500 bottles of wine when he has people over, so I'm SUPER excited to go to his place before the show!
And this weekend, I will be going down to Champaign for the Illinois vs. Michigan football game. Unfortunately I realize that the Fighting Illini are one of the worst, if not THE worst football team in the NCAA, but I still love going to games!
I have a good guy friend (who is not dating one of my best girl friends) who played football for Illinois when we were in college. He is from Champaign and his parents always throw huge tailgates that are SO much fun. I am so excited to party with them on Saturday! It's a 2:30 PM game and it's supposed to be 57 degrees and sunny, PERFECT tailgating and football weather!
I am going to be taking Elle Woods with me... she LOVES tailgating!
Do you guys have anything exciting coming up this week/weekend?!
