I love martini’s and I love parks. So a place called Martini Park sounds like a perfect destination. I’ll be there tomorrow evening (Thursday, June 19) at 7:30 for the My Boys exclusive screening party.

My Boys is a comedy airing on TBS created by Northwestern alum Betsy Thomas. Since My Boys is set in My Boys on TBSChicago you’ll catch plenty of references to many Chicago landmarks including the Art Institute, Billy Goat Tavern, The Hideout and Guthrie’s Tavern. It’s about Sun-Times sportswriter P.J. Franklin (surprised they didn’t make the last name “Clarke” as in another Chicago landmark) and her “boys” including one radio DJ who works at a rock station that suddenly changes formats…something I can totally identify with!  I spent a few years happily rockin’ at Chicago’s Rock 103.5 spinning bands like Metallica and Anthrax, then suddenly one day it flipped to “Jammin’ Oldies”. Ugh. Bad memory.  And I digress.

If you come to Martini Park tomorrow evening you’ll get to meet and mingle with cast members Michael Bunin, Reid Scott, and Kyle Howard as you enjoy complimentary appetizers and win cool prizes from My Boys and WTMX.  You’ll watch the new episode on the big screen while sipping specialty martinis.  Great way to spend a Thursday night in Chicago!
