We can’t count the number of times we’ve said, “Man, you know what this city really needs? A party night dedicated to Dr. Dre.”

Well, thank god for the NSA, because someone finally picked up on our hints. Dre Day has come to Chicago specifically, to Small Bar (2049 W. Division) on Feb. 18. The event, which started in the Twin Cities, includes attractions like the “$20 Sack Pyramid,” a “your face on ‘The Chronic’ album cover” photo booth, 40s galore (while they last) and, of course, tons of Dre tunes spun by local DJs like Pickel, Onceamonth, Intel, Maker, Trew and Kool Hersh. No cover.

All in all, it’s a great way to get your Dre fix while you wait patiently for the release of the rapper/producer’s new album, “Detox.” We hear it’s dropping real soon.
