Sports Friday At Big Chicks

Thanks for Team Chicago members who came out at Big Chicks last Friday evening to join us for Sports Friday. Members enjoyed the beer and cocktail specials and also the $5 Burgers that were offered by Big Chicks.

Team Chicago will be taking a break with Sports Friday during the Holiday Season since they fall on Holiday weekends. Join us for our next Sports Friday on January 28, 2011 to help kick off the new year of Team Chicago activities.

Burgers w/ fries or salad. They also have other yummy specialties like Blacken Talapia, Pork Chops, Nachos, Soups and Salads.

Hey the weather's getting colder, what a great reason for you come out sporting your 2010 Gay Games Ceremonies Pull Over Jacket. Come out and meet some other participants who also went out to the Games in Cologne, Germany and share some good stories.

Team Chicago inherited this event from Frontrunners/Frontwalkers Chicago at the end of 2009. Frontrunners objective for the event was to provide a social setting in which individual sport participants could mix and mingle. Most sport teams get together after they play; and the leagues host an end-of-the-year event of some sort. This event was originally called "Final Friday" as it occurs on the last Friday of the month. But that title made you wonder if it was the last one that would ever occur. Because of this it was renamed "Sports Friday."

We have hosted a social get-together most months. If you have any questions, contact us at
