Happy birthday to one of the best people I know

On flappers, fun and the frustrating frivolity of politics

Liquid Courage

It’s hard to say who enjoyed the opening night of Liquid Courage last Friday more — the raucous bachelorette party who took up the entire first row, or me.

Thanks to my trusty camera and a far lower consumption rate than the aforementioned, I can say for sure that I will have a much easier time remembering the good time we all had.

There was the dancing Gimlet, the historically accurate Bloody Mary, the Fireball crooner, “Trust me you can dance, trust me you can sing,” and a montage of “the worst drinking night of my life.”

Billed as an interactive drinking show, and staged on Second City’s newly renovated Beat Lounge, Liquid Courage is also a fun, witty romp, which the non-drinking members of our party genuinely enjoyed as well.

If you’re in the Chicago area, we highly recommend you check out this show, conceived of and produced by our favorite duo, Pure & Weary.

These pictures will give you a taste and I’m including a short video as well. You have two more chances on the next two Friday nights to see the show. Here a link for tickets.

And here’s a little taste:
