And women are getting antsy.
Meet Joan, Connie, Dottie, and Agnes. Four best friends living in Winnetka, IL. They meet every Wednesday for a Betty Crocker cooking contest, imagining how the prizes might change their lives. Their weekly gathering isn’t just about cooking, but a time to confide secrets and share frustrations.
- Usually, it’s LIFE Magazine that’s read cover to cover in between mixing, sifting, and chopping. However, a different kind of reading material arrives. Shocked but inspired by the Kinsey report, their lives take an interesting turn.
- A TASTE OF THINGS TO COME is a fabulously fun romp tracing the changing lives of these four Winnetka women from the 1950s to the sexual revolution of the 1960s. This homage to prior generations of women who blazed new trails features a rollicking original score of ‘50s and ‘60s music with great harmonies, all backed by an all-female rock n’ roll band.
- Come join the journey of empowerment as these four women discover their own unimaginable, bold new future!

RECORD from legendary artist TRACEY THORN of EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL.

RECORD, arriving in stores and online March 2, 2018 and now available for pre-order, is Thorn’s first solo album of new material in seven years and comes off the heels of the hit dance single, “Queen,” currently heating up dance floors.

Watch the music video for “QUEEN” NOW!

Across four decades, Tracey's songs and writing have offered up a clear-eyed woman's view of the immediate world around her, from the acerbic teen love songs of her first early-eighties band Marine Girls, through sixteen years as one half of articulate multi-million-selling duo Everything But The Girl, to her recent acclaimed memoirs and journalism. Tracey’s newest album, Record, promises to be some of her most personal work yet. When asked to describe the album, Tracey lovingly referred to Record as “nine feminist bangers.”

From their humble beginnings in Cuba, Emilio and Gloria Estefan came to America and broke through all barriers to become a crossover sensation at the very top of the pop music world. But just when they thought they had it all, they almost lost everything.

ON YOUR FEET! takes you behind the music and inside the real story of this record-making and groundbreaking couple who, in the face of adversity, found a way to end up on their feet.

Directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots), with choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys) and an original book by Academy Award® winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman), ON YOUR FEET! features some of the most iconic songs of the past quarter-century — and one of the most inspiring stories in music history.

All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket. As a courtesy to our patrons, it is the policy of On Your Feet! not to admit children under the age of 5.

Elton John - Revamp CD Release Party!

Revamp, the new album celebrating the extraordinary catalogue and songwriting partnership of 

ELTON JOHN and BERNIE TAUPIN featuring superstar artists like LADY GAGA, MARY J. BLIGE, P!NK, MILEY CYRUS, DEMI LOVATO, ED SHEERAN, SAM SMITH and more.

29792650 1780482378639449 5998642764894437376 N

The new renditions of timeless classics and artists featured on the album show the depth of the catalogue these two icons have created, which can easily cross musical genres and their unparalleled influence across popular music of all styles.

“'It's always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it,” says Elton John. “As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp & Restoration choose to add their own unique twist in the process. It means that our music is still relevant and ultimately that our songs continue to reach new audiences. We're humbled and thank them all for their generosity.”

“Because of our love of all kinds of music, we’re not stuck in one genre,” said Bernie Taupin. “From day one we borrowed from everything that’s good about American music – whether it’s blues, country, gospel, pop, pure rock – everything got thrown in the mix. I think that’s why our music over the years has been so varied. It would be tiring if you just got stuck in one niche your entire career, especially when it’s one as long as ours.”

Please find a full track listing below.

Revamp tracklisting
1. Bennie and The Jets - Elton John, P!nk, Logic
2. We All Fall In Love Sometimes - Coldplay
3. I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues - Alessia Cara

Sorry to Bother You - giveaway

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU

We have a great gift pack for you!

You have multiple chances to WIN, this Sunday!

36268072 1871415106212842 3140267412939603968 N

We have screening passes and 2 grand prizes. Your first chance will be at Tweet Let's Eat, join us for brunch and your chance to win some movie passes and take home so swag!

We will also have one more grand prize and screening passes during the Sunday BBQ at Big Chicks!

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is out on July 6th! For our Trivia fans tonight, we have 3 pairs of screening passes to an advance showing on the movie on July 3rd and a grand prize of a SORRY TO BOTHER YOU gift bag!

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU tells the story of Cassius Green, a 30-something telemarketer with self-esteem issues, who discovers a magical selling power living inside of him. Suddenly he’s rising up the ranks to the elite team of his company, a company which sells heinous products and services. The upswing in Cassius’s career raises serious red flags with his brilliant girlfriend, Detroit, a sign-twirling gallery artist. But the unimaginable hits the fan when Cassius meets the company’s cocaine-snorting, orgy hosting, obnoxious, and relentless CEO, Steve Lift. SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is unlike anything you have ever seen. It is a searing social satire about greed, racial dynamics and capitalism in a universe not unlike our own. Prepare yourself for something outrageous and totally original.

In Theaters: July 6th, 2018

Directed By: Boots Riley

Cast: Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun, Armie Hammer

Ride for David - RFAC Fundraiser

As many of you are aware, David Painter was my best friend. He loved a joke at my expense (I am getting the last laugh with these photos), but he was still always my biggest cheerleader. He passed suddenly on April 23rd. 

He was always a big supporter of my Ride For AIDS Chicago, and always donated.

This year, Barbara and I, would like to host a fundraiser in his honor. All proceeds will be donated in his name. 

We will be hosting a fundraiser at his favorite haute, Big Chicks, on July 29th from 4-9pm. There will be raffle prizes and JELLO shots! I hope you will come out in remembrance, in support, and join us for a night of fun!
