This weekend, Miss Michelle L’amour — she of the bodacious Big Sexy Show — brings her legendary act to the City Winery for the first time. Here’s your date night plan.
Tonight, you’re gonna need to look good. Hit the just-opened Charles Tyrwhitt store in the Loop for some dapper English threads. This is the British shirtmaker’s first Chicago locale. Inside: a library of well-cut dress shirts, any of which can be tailored. Plus: the finest collection of cufflinks and ties to match. Get fancy.
Think of I|O Urban Roofscape, the lounge on the fourth floor of the newly opened Godfrey Hotel, as your secret rendezvous spot. While the main attraction here is the dramatic glass-house terrace, you can still find a dimly lit fireside nook. Cocktails feature housemade tonics.
A nightcap of erotic whimsy, the Big Sexy Show is the brainchild of head mistress Michelle L’amour and her world-renowned Chicago Starlets. Spread across two late-night shows at the intimate City Winery, this exclusive burlesque show runs the gamut, from classic stripteases to off-the-wall variety acts. Your tickets await.
