If you thought "Thirsty Thursday" was a fad that ended in college, think again. What better way to ring in a summer weekend than by sipping on some icy-cold cocktails tonight? Luckily, Original Penguin is holding a shopping and mixology party at their Rush Street boutique, giving us the chance to let loose and spend a little dough. An expert bartender from Bar DeVille will be on hand to stir up some gin-based drinks, and the store will be offering a discount to shoppers who want to beef up their wardrobe while they kick back. And that, dear readers, is our perfect Thursday. When: Thursday, July 26, from 6 to 9 p.m.
Where: Original Penguin, 901 North Rush Street (at East Delaware Place); 312-475-0792.
