Do Black Wednesday for free

So, it’s been a rough year for many Chicagoans. The murder rate is rising. The economy is tanking. The Cubs choked, again. But you know, there’s always one place you can go to get away from all that, a place you know you’ll feel safe and secure: home.

Of course, home usually comes with its own set of problems – annoying parents, socially awkward cousins, repressed childhood memories. So before you make that trip back, you might want to loosen up by partying on Thanksgiving Eve (aka Black Wednesday), the biggest bar and club night of the year.

Check out Centerstage’s list of events, but before you make a decision, listen up.

We’re giving away a free ticket ($25 value) to District Bar‘s party, which includes three hours of gourmet food, cocktails and beer (plus specials afterward). View the full menu here.

To enter, send a Twitter message (“Sign me up for Black Wednesday contest”) to @CstageChicago by Wednesday, November 18 at 3 p.m.
