    Heading to Chicago at the end of August (21st-26th) and was wanting some fun things to do! I just turned 21 so I thought I'd venture into bars, and see how that goes!

    Any bars you guys would recommend in Chicago? Also, what do I even drink? Seriously, I've never been drunk before and don't know anything about drinks. I had a margarita on the rocks for my birthday and it was so gross I almost threw up everywhere.

    Any other gay events going on as well?

    One of the best and biggest gay bars on Halsted Street in Boystown is Sidetrack. Lots of other niche gay bars to explore near by...

    Bonus for you, they have the best Ketel One Vodka slushies (try grape) for the novice drinker!

    I've heard great things about Sidetracks, thanks! That grape slushie sounds delicious by the way!

    Sidetracks is the biggest and best. Roscoes and mini bar are great and they have a younger crowd. Love the music at mini bar and if you like to dance a lot of people go there to dance.

    roscoes and hydrate are fun, but u will meet people who want to get "too freaky"...like take in the bathroom and.....(use ur imagination). sidetrack is a nice place to hang and talk, more of like a lounge. but yea, halsted and belmont streets will be your best friends there. HAVE FUN!!!
