All my 80’s babies!, (aka, members of the generation that can whistle the 90210 theme song and whose descent into puberty was timed perfectly with the rise of sexually explicit cable television), indulge in fall’s newest (and oldest) guilty pleasure program, Melrose Place, every Tuesday at Luxbar, located appropriately, in Chicago’s Gold Coast. Celebrate the revival of your favorite inmates, I mean tenants, with MP inspired cocktails such as a Jake and Coke, a “Mansini-Tini”, or a Melrose Place Punch (pun intended), all for $5. And if you still have an appetite after watching Bronx Mowgli’s mother, aka, Ashlee Simpson play “Violet” a small-town girl with a big-city secret, order up a round of $2 sliders, including Kobe burgers and buttermilk fried chicken. The weekly viewing parties, equipped with 37-inch HDTVs, also feature “old school” trivia, so put your thinking caps on, and prepare to throw down Amanda Woodward style.
