Chicago’s Original Trolley Crawl, “Screw Cupid,” Celebrates 15 Years of Partying for Chicago’s Fun-Loving Singles This Valentine’s Day

“It all started with a big group of Durkin’s regulars; thirty single chicks, taking over the bar, yelling obscenities about Cupid, love and the men that they pretended not to care about. That’s when I thought, ‘Screw Cupid,’” said Durkin’s Tavern Owner, Greg “Coach” Neal. Today, Bar1 Events celebrates 15 years of the Screw Cupid Trolley Crawl!

It’s Ladies Night at the Red Door Spas on Michigan Ave!

Ladies, go out! Wind, sleet, and snow cannot keep a great Chicago Woman at home. That is, if there is something worth seeing or doing that outweighs the warmth of a fire and perfect glass of red wine. That's where I come in!

Chicago is for Doers: Make Something Happen on #NationalNothingDay

There’s an un-holiday for every ridiculous thing you can think of. National Dress Up Your Pet Day, Squirrel Lovers Day, Sports Wives Appreciation Day. Heck, there’s even a day for people with two different colored eyes! But on this day, January 16, Americans recognize the most ludicrous holiday of them all, National Nothing Day. A day dedicated to the idea that “nothing is possible.” A day that insults the “make-it-happen spirit” that Chicagoans embody 365 days of the year.
