Proof of Age

Nothing compares to your 20’s. Lessons of heartbreaks, scholastic woes, roommate turmoil and the true start of the never-ending journey to figuring out who you are and who you want to be are all included in this decade of your life. But the best part about your 20’s is that you get to make a shit ton of mistakes & have a shit ton of fun while doing it!

While Chicago is crawling with pubs & clubs, there’s one nightlife venue that stands above the rest. The Proof is in the VIP experience.

Proof nightclub, conveniently located in the heart of the Gold Coast on Rush, has two unique floors of nightlife that cater to your desires. The exclusive VIP sections are separated from the main club area with unique elevations and glass.

Proof has a more intimate setting on the second floor, where you can enjoy table service with friends, or even book your own sinfully private party. Bars are located throughout the club and extensive champagne and bottle service lists are available at all tables.

So what sets Proof apart from the rest? There’s a good chance you’ll see some celebrity action. Proof is regularly visited by celebrities and athletes such as LMFAO, Whitney Port, Tom Green, MTV’s Ronnie Margo, Michael Trevino, Dennis Quaid & the list goes on and on. What better way to get crazy and create some 20-something stories than starting a sentence with “This one night I met…”

LMFAO & Far East Movement

MTV Ronnie

Michael Trevino from the Vampire Diaries

Alas, not every night can include someone famous. But no worries; at Proof, every night is VIP.

Treat Your Mama to a Brunch Party!

Nothing will make your Mother’s Day more special than an awesome brunch. It’s quick, easy and guaranteed to be delicious.  Here are 5 Chicago brunch spots that will definitely give the mom in your life a meal she will remember.

Bull and Bear

Located in the heart of River North, Bull and Bear has a very wallet-friendly brunch. We recommend the silver dollar pancake trio where mom can choose her combo from strawberry, blueberry, banana, chocolate chip or regular. Give her celebration some oomph with their $15 bottomless mimosas! BullandBearEvents.com


If you’re on the west side of town and feeling adventurous Frontier is great brunch spot for you. Get mom the Crab Benedict or try the fried rabbit and waffles. They are even offering a special “Mother’s Day Brunch” menu that includes 3 courses for only $25. TheFrontierEVENTS.com

Butch McGuire’s

If you mom likes a laid back, saloon atmosphere take her to Butch McGuire’s on Near North Side Chicago. Satisfy her tastebuds with an order of chorizo hash or steak and eggs. http://butchmcguires.com/

The Fifty/50

Is mom a bacon lover? Take her to The Fifty/50 for the all you can eat bacon special. They are famous for their thick cut maple glazed & they also serve up a tasty big country scramble. http://www.thefifty50.com/

Declan Irish Pub

Last, but certainly not least is Declan’s in Old Town where you can enjoy brunch on the patio. Their authentic Irish flare brings something different to the brunch mix. Famous for their shepherd’s pie, they may be an unconventional choice but a delicious one nonetheless. https://declansirishpub.projectparties.com/

Happy Mother’s Day!

For the Polished Partier

Last week we told you 40s are the new 30s – well then, 30s are the new 20s! Your 30s are perfect; you’re not too young and overly wild but you’re definitely not old and tired. You’ve reached a new level of partying maturity and we’ve got the perfect venue for you.

Bull and Bear is a classic Chicago spot for people in their 30s looking for
a more polished experience. Located right off the Brown Line in River North, this bar has
become a causal hot-spot.

Bull and Bear is one of the few bars that have Table Tap technology. This pay-as-you-pour
method is a refined experience that brings new meaning to the “no-wait” service standard.
The amount of beer consumed is displayed at your table, allowing you to keep track of your
tab. It couldn’t be any easier.

We couldn’t talk about Bull and Bear without mentioning their delicious and wallet-
friendly brunch. For the morning after partying we recommend the silver dollar pancake
trio where you choose your combo from strawberry, blueberry, banana, chocolate chip
or regular. And who could do brunch without their favorite hangover cure? That’s right,
bottomless mimosas – only $15!

Make sure you check out BullandBearEvents.com   for their featured specials, weekly events and all
your private party needs. Trust us; you can’t go wrong with Bull and Bear, where your 30s
are even better than your 20s.

How To Party in Your 40’s & Not Feel Old

You hit your 40s…you could be feeling a little down, but don’t! Haven’t you heard? 40 is the new 30! While this statement is true, it only holds up if you’re at the right bar – otherwise you’re surrounded by 25 year olds and feeling not-so-young again.

It’s time to party with a more upscale crowd. Frontier has just the atmosphere you need. After a long day at work just head over to Frontier’s warm, multi-level space featuring a 40-foot bar, private party room, open-air kitchen and beer garden. The tavern has state-of-the-art ice taps with 16 seasonal and traditional beers, over 20 varieties of canned and bottled beers, specialty cocktails and wine pairings. You can grab dinner and drinks on the main level and then head upstairs to the lounge to watch your favorite game. 

Have a rough Monday? Check out Frontier’s “Odd Bit Monday.” You can enjoy exotic dishes, 1/2 off wine bottles and 22oz craft bottles. They have deals everyday of the week and they recently started serving lunch. 

Frontier is the place you can go where you won’t have to worry about being the new 30. You can simply be yourself; 40 and all.
