SHARE Plan ahead -- for cocktails on Friday

Cocktails and Planned Parenthood don’t usually go together, unless it’s in a particularly tasteless joke.

Planned Parenthood of Illinois has aimed to change that this summer with its Friday at Four Sexy Summer Cocktail Series at local bars. The final installment of the event goes down at LuxBar this Friday from 4-7 p.m.; for $25, you’ll enjoy hosted wine, beer and appetizers, as well as additional drink and app specials. Proceeds will go to support access to affordable sexual health care. Buy your tickets here, and leave the jokes at home.
