The gorgeous weather that spoiled us back in February has returned and I expect to see all of the patios mentioned in an earlier post to be jam packed this week. In particular, The Anthem in Wicker Park is debuting its new patio for the Cheeky Sadie Hawkin’s (Vice Versa, Turnabout, you know the one) event on Thursday, May 17th from 6-8 PM.

It’s your once in a lifetime chance to relive your glory days (or redo your not-so-glory-days) while sipping on everyone’s favorite seasonal brews from Leinenkugels, margaritas and exclusive Cheeky Punch. Other goodies include his and her passed apps and spiked popsicles for dessert. DJ Megan Taylor will spin some of the 90’s and early 2000’s hits that are guaranteed to bring back some fond memories. My fingers are crossed for some Sister Hazel, New Radicals, Barenaked Ladies and maybe a little K-Ci and JoJo to slow things down.

So invite your favorite guy pal, be it your boyfriend, hubby, gay best friend, co-worker, etc., and grab your tickets here for $20 in advance or $25 at the door. It’s a Thursday night, so no excuses, we all know what a typical Friday at the office looks like during the summer.

Cheers! Mary Doyle
