Worthy Causes: Drinking Heavily To Curb Domestic Violence

Okay, the title of this post is a little tongue-in-cheek, but the event we’re about to describe sounds fun and progressive. Tonight, the Young Professionals Group (YPG) of Between Friends (a Chicago-based domestic violence advocacy nonprofit), is holding a holiday happy hour at Exchequer in the Loop. It’s from 6-8pm, and $25 buys you all you can drink wine and beer, plus pizza, salad and soft drinks. We don’t know about you, but we can drink a lot of wine and beer in two hours!

Nevertheless, the point of all this is that $10 of the cover goes toward gift cards for Between Friends’ clients at places like Target, Jewel and Dominicks (this according to Local Wine Events). A lot more useful than Barney’s, we guess!

And while you may sneer at the concept of Young Professionals (in other words, yuppies), consider that you, yourself, are probably that very same thing. So suck it up, drink it off, and help someone.
