A Look into Fall and Winter

Hello Gentlemen,

It has been an exciting few weeks for me as we have secured and re-Secured some locations for us to hold events. These events are going to keep us all busy from the 2nd week of October all the way through Mid February.

First, I must speak of our Co-Hosted event coming up in just 2 short weeks on October 13th. We have arranged for the world-renowned NeoFururists to create a curated, more naked version of their late night spectacular The Infinite Wrench. This is a huge ordeal. This is a fast-paced show where the audience determines the order in which the 30 plays are performed. The show is funny, irreverent, sometimes political, musical and ART. They have 150 seats in their theater and we would love to pack the house. This is a NOT TO BE MISSED show as we are also teaming up with Chicago Fun Club. This means we are hosting a COED event. With this being a Saturday afternoon you can come to the show after a bottomless mimosa brunch at any of the wonderful brunch spaces Andersonville has to offer. We would love for you to RSVP and pay in advance for this event. I would love to see CANS show up en masse so Chicago Fun Club Members will get to know who we are and what we are all about.

Next, we have the reincarnation of our Jackhammer bar party just in time for Halloween on October 27th. We will be taking over the back bar of Jackhammer in Rogers Park for an evening of spooky. This has always been one of our most popular events. Thus meaning you should reserve your spot in advance as we will not be able to have walk-ins as our contract with the bar only allows for 40 people.  There will, of course, be a naked costume contest and some spooky music to make this the spookiest evening of the year.

Now for the most exciting bit of news of them all. Drumroll Please... We have secured an Indoor Swimming pool for fall and winter Pool Parties. We have a full-length swimming pool in the heart of Edgewater just off the Granville Red Line CTA stop. Our first pool party at this new venue will be November 24th. The Saturday after Thanksgiving is the day to recover from all the food you ate on Thursday and relax from all the shopping you did on Friday (we know you bought stuff for yourself too. It is ok we won't judge.) The best way to relax on Shop Local Saturday is to swim naked at a locally owned and operated swimming pool. At just under 2 months away almost HALF of the 60 spots we are allowed have already been reserved. Buy your tickets now as the spots will sell out for the first pool party we have had in 3 years!

Feel free to reach out to Kevin, Tony or Me if you have any questions about any of our great upcoming events.

Love and Nudity,

Justin Hardesty CANS President
