Ballin’ on a Budget?

Cherry Red Roasters is playing host to our 90’s hip hop sh*t show this Saturday, February 25th and, well, if you’re having problems rubbing two nickels together – or if you just wanna have ten extra bucks to pay off your tab, we’re here for you! The first five people to invite at least a hunnit (that’s 100, yo) of their homies to our Facebook event for this show are gonna have their names at the door (read the rules first!).  No line, no cover. All ballin’. If you really wanna kick it, invite 200 and we’ll comp you and a guest.

Here are the rules…

  1. Click the FB “Like” link at the bottom of this post and “Like” Too White Crew on Facebook. Here’s the link.
  2. Send a message to the band’s FB page when you’re ready to invite your friends, but don’t invite your friends till you get a reply from the band! Be patient. Sometimes we pass out and stuff.
  3. Invite at least 100 people.  And don’t invite people who suck. We’ve all got FB friends who think smiling is a chore. Leave them out of this. Invite the story makers – the ones who fall into walls – then apologize to the wall…the ones that’ll rip the shot out of your hand and pound it because you took too long. THOSE friends.
  4. Let us know you’re done inviting people. We’ll check your work and put your name on the list.
  5. Spend that money on shots.
And no, if you invite 1000, you don’t get 10 comps…but you WILL get a “Got Back?” tank at the show if you do! :
Get in for free

Pro tip for bands who play at Crusens in Peoria…

Don’t book a show the night before. And definitely don’t book a show the night after. Carve out a few days to prepare (like, your will) and recover (doctor visits) hope the good lord is watching over you during your stay. Pray. See you this Saturday!

Crusens this Saturday!

NYE 2017!!!

12/29 UPDATE! $20 general admission tiks have just been added for those who don’t want a food/drink package!

NYE is one of those “Big or Stay Home” nights – where you either lay low or go for broke. Chicago’s NYE Gold Coast Toast is the “go for broke”:

2017-chicago-nye-gold-coast-toast

For decades, the Gold Coast bars on Division St. have been a nut house on New Year’s Eve, being home to city peeps, suburbanites and visitors from all over the globe who want to party in Chicago for NYE. Well the six big bars in that hood just formed the “NYE Gold Coast Toast” event – party packages that take this thing to the next level. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s a Saturday night this year, which means these bars are open until 5AM.

We’ll be at Mother’s – that’s right, the Mother’s you went to back in the day, when you were sweating it out while the bouncer studied your ID…the Mother’s that has been the rite of passage for those coming to the city from pretty much everywhere – for decades. That whole strip of bars on Division is cranking it up more than ever and we can’t wait to stumble around the Gold Coast until 5AM.

In the words of Spinal Tap’s musical genius, Nigel Tufnel, “This one goes to 11”.
