LUSH: West Town Launch PARTY

LUSH WEST TOWN
1412 West Chicago Avenue
312-666-6900

Launch Party
Friday, December 4th
6-9pm

LUSH West Town was licensed and we cranked it up, whipped that shop into some sort of presentable shape, and are OPEN. Doors are open everyday at noon until 10pm. Now, mind you, this is Lush in the raw…partially stocked, lacking our signature rolling carts, mounted wall art, and some supplies…but WITH open bottles, very excited Lushies, and lots of super geeky bottles and two, yeah, count ’em, two!, beer coolers.

CELEBRATE our launch, the holidays, or just for the hell of it. Please join in the wild and raucous celebration THIS FRIDAY, December 4th, 6-9pm, as we open to the holiday and revel in the sweet sweetness of having a shiny, brand spanking new play thing. This is absolutely a LUSH style shindig with many bottles open and flowing…wine, beer, and perhaps a bit of HUM and bubbly, too…small nibbles and a very warm welcome to neighbors, friends, and lushes all. Yeehaw, it’s a party.

YOU are invited.  And you.  And all your friends.

P.S. Ms Kelly is celebrating her birthday, as well.  Make sure to wish her a happy celebration!

Boo! Scary Skull Wine Party…

October 21, 2009 at 5:14 pm (Current Events, Our Favorite Things, Special Events, What we're drinking) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

SUPER SPECIAL, extra EXCLUSIVE EVENT:
Twisted Oak River of Skulls Release Party
[$50 including tax, NOT tip]
Friday, OCTOBER 30th
6-9pm

Get Twisted. The infamous, rowdy folks from Twisted Oak are here and we’ll be celebrating the release of their super special River of Skulls. This wildly burly, sneaky and scary wine is chock full of Calaveras County Mourvedre from the Dalton Vineyard. Heady, aromatic perfume encourages you to jump recklessly, fully, into a glass of this juice. Deep, dark, dirty and sexy, this Mourvedre is earthy and funky, yet pulsing with luscious fruit and sassy spice. An ankle bone of cherries is connected to the shin bone of raspberries, which connects to the knee bone of smoky vanilla. The knee bone is connected to the leg bone of Mourvedre’s natural tabacco character, which connects to the hip bone, back bone and neck bone of a nice long finish. Oh Dem Skulls!

Warm and toasty, belly busting snacks will include some sort of chunky, gourmet chili with crusty bread, sweet cream butter with cornbread, and a custom rum cake. Rubber chickens and pirates will be here too! Join the fun and dress up for the costume contest…one precious, uber yummy bottle of Twisted #%@& will be awarded for the best outfit. http://www.twistedoak.com/

RSVP absolutely necessary. Space is limited and time is spiraling down to zero. Holla at Ms. Erin, erin@lushwineandspirits.com or 312-738-1900. Bring friends and bring the par-tay.

Free party on the Lush Patio 6/28

June 28, 2008 at 2:24 pm (Beer, Special Events, What we're drinking) (, , , , , , )

The outdoor patio at our newest location has been open for the last three weeks, and our neighbors have been putting it to good use.  It’s time to let the secret out, however, so a week from today we’ll be hosting our first party in our new outdoor space.  Helping us with the fun will be our friends from Three Floyd’s Brewing, Indiana’s own hopheads extraordinaire.  They’re releasing their Fantabulous Resplendence XI Anniversary Ale, and we’re hosting the official release party on Saturday, June 28 from 5-8pm.  The party is free, we’ll be passing out samples of the Fantab and other beers and grilling up some goodies on the hibachi.  We’ll also be offering beer-to-go via our shiny, sexy new Growlers (pewter handles boyee!).  There’s nothing like great beer two liters at a time. 

No RSVP is necessary, but if you’re planning on coming please let us know so we can be prepared.  So come by, grab some beer and chill in the sunshine with your favorite Lushes!

[UPDATE]

The party was fantastic, many thanks to all who came out and spent time with us!  The turnout was huge, the beer was flowing and the patio stayed packed for hours. It was such as success that we’ll be doing more in the future–keep an eye on this blog for updates!

Special thanks to Sally the Beer Girl, Lincoln from Three Floyds and to that guy who kept distracting me while I mopped.
