April 22 – Forever Young Prom. You might be years removed from high school but you’re never too old to relive those prom memories, especially now that you can legally drink and then some. Remedy bar is hosting, from 8pm-midnight, Forever Young prom night. Dressing up is encouraged. “We’re hosting a “prom night” party complete with free photo booth and photo props, DJ BamBamm spinning prom favorites from 8pm to midnight, $7 spiked punch, beer cans and bottles served in brown paper bags, and a raffle for gift cards.”
April 22 – Drink up at Chicago Wine Fest. The weather might hover just over 50° which is quite alright because you will be indoors enjoying wine samples will be flowing at this wine fest. Held in three hour blocks, you can still snag tickets for late night hours. “You’ll have the chance to sample premium wine to your heart’s content while live entertainment keep the party lively during this one of a kind experience.”
April 21 – One of the major events to begin the Chicago spring/summer gala season is the Joffrey Ballet Gala. Guests not only get treated to a selection of performances from the amazing Joffrey Ballet dancers they then retire to the Palmer for cocktails, dinner and a dance floor that usually gets filled into the night. Feeling fancy? You can still snag tickets to this year’s gala co-chaired by former Kraft CEO Roger Deromedi and wife Sandra, and few other corporate notables and who’s who host committee. Get tickets here.
April 23 – Spring Day Party for Treasurer Kurt Summers! Part day party, part politico fundraiser. Current city treasurer Kurt Summers is being feted at this Joy District day party with tickets starting at $100, going up to $2,500 if you’re an event chair, though some discount tickets might still be available for $55. So now the question will be is he running for mayor or what?
