Experience Festival Life Every Wednesday at Wonderbar

Skip the bros, the tank tops, and the hordes of elite partiers dancing just so you can see them flex. Skip the overpriced drinks, the pretentious club’s hour long entrance line and the seventeen year old kandi kids who extoll the virtues of “PLUR” as they shove past you on their way to grinding on the nearest muscly figure in the front of the crowd. Many frustrated fans wait until festival season to escape to the remote locations of Electric Forest and Camp Bisco to avoid the ever-growing “EDM” phenomenon. However, a few have been fortunate enough to find the local equivalent of these festivals, converging on Allston’s Wonderbar each week for Boston’s Wobble Wednesdays.

But that’s not all: the whole night is being held at Hotel Chantelle, a notorious nightlife hotspot, and includes a free rum tasting courtesy of Owney’s NYC Rum, plus free “boozy” cupcakes brought to you by Prohibition Bakery (famous for, you guessed it: sweet treats with an alcoholic twist).And don’t forget the special late night cocktail happy hour after the rum tasting!

Make Your Way to Jack and Gingers

What do you usually look for when planning a night out? If reasonably priced food, drink specials, and pretty young people are your thing, Jack and Ginger's has just that.

Jack and Ginger's is located in a little Chicago neighborhood known as Bucktown. Never been to Bucktown? Well it’s a lot like Lincoln Park; the only difference is the residents are about 3 years older and there are a few more art galleries around. It’s where Lincoln Parkers go when they decide to retire from their highly competitive softball leagues.

The Mayne Attraction On Morse

Morse street in Rogers Park is one of Chicago's most underrated and under appreciated places to get loaded. There is a number of bars and restaurants all conveniently clustered around the Morse red line stop without all the woo girls and 28 year old softball fanatics you usually run into around Addison. Besides the reasonably priced low key watering holes and gyro restaurants, Morse street also has a fantastic venue that hosts not only some top notch musical acts, but also theater, and a mixed media gallery as well.

As if to match the cobble stone side streets around Morse street, the Mayne Stage has the appearance of one of America's early 20th century theaters. Everything from the massive sign out front with letters written with light bulbs, to the theater with its lounge tables and blue velvet curtains is reminiscent of a cabaret theater. It's a throw back to an age, an age which most people are from are most likely dead.
