Back On The Market Party at The Fifty/50

Back On The Market Party at The Fifty/50

When adjusting to a break up, you have two options:

1) Pine away after someone who has made the decision to discard you

2) Accept the situation for what it is and react to it. 

Do you stay home on weekends and cry because Justin Timberlake hasn't responded to any of your letters?  Of course not!  Really, it's the same thing.  You are lusting over both dudes, but neither of them are having any communication with you. You might as well be strangers.

I'm taking route #2...and I'm doing it with style.  The Fifty/50, a super sexy guy bar in Wicker Park, and I are throwing a Back On The Market party this Friday.  You should come.  Let's be honest, it was been a weird few weeks.  There are a bunch of us who are ready to wash that man right out of your hair.  Why not do it with vodka?

Girls, you should come, because I have it on good authority that hot guys go to this bar.  It's a great excuse to get dressed up with your friends for an awesome girly night out.  I might even break out the Accidentally Sexy banner dress...and trust me, that only means mayhem.  That dress should be framed!

Guys, you should come because I know a bunch of gorgeous single women.  We are all going to be looking our foxiest and on the prowl.  It's a no-brainer. You could pick your own bar and just hope that a few attractive women show up, or just come to my party.

Hit the jump for details and a sweet giveaway...

Date/Time: Friday, September 10.  I'll be arriving around 8:00 p.m.

Location: The Fifty/50, 2047 West Division (between Damen and Hoyne)

Booze: There will be an Absolut Hosted Cocktail Reception from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and for one night only, the bar will be renaming their new Absolut Corazon cocktail as the Accidentally Sexy.  At 24 oz and only $10, the drink is a mix of Absolut Mandarin vodka, Absolut Ruby Red vodka, blood orange juice, pomegranate juice, club soda and Sprite.  Everything about that sounds freaking delicious!

Bring: The douchiest picture of your ex.  I will a) personally deface it, making it into a one-of-a-kind work of art, b) if it is judged to be the douchiest of the night, you will win a Fifty/50 t-shirt. That way, when you wake up in a totally awesome haze the next morning, you will a t-shirt to remind you where you were the night before.

Win: Since I'm freshly single and need some liquid encouragement, the Fifty/50 is giving me a table with a bottle of booze. You can get in on this too! Leave your worst break-up story in the comments section and you could win a coveted table reservation to the party for you and five of your friends. The table comes with a $30 credit for your table's final bill.  The only rule is that you have to be there by 9:00 p.m.  The winner will be contacted on Friday morning. Nothing quite says sexy like a little VIP pampering.

Put this on your calendars!! Sign up on the Facebook invite and start snooping at the talent!

Now, go ahead and tell me.  What is your worst break up story?  It might just lead to your best make out story with this prize...

  • Worst breakup story? Ok, you got one.

    Summer of '08, I meet this cute brunette at a friend's 4th of July party way out in Sterling, IL. We find that we have a lot in common and hit it off. A month or so later, we're "Facebook-official" and I make plans to visit her at her college, which is about a half hour east of Peoria for Labor Day weekend. I go down there, we play around of golf and have what I still consider the best weekend of my life. Just two weeks after starting this relationship, I began to feel stronger about her than any other girl I've ever met (and my previous relationship lasted over 2 years).

    During the whole 2 hour drive home, she was all I could think about. Just 13 more days until I could see her again, I'd think to myself. She had me wrapped around her finger but I hadn't been able to tell her yet.

    I couldn't get a hold of her right away, which worried me a bit. Two nights after returning home, she tells me she doesn't think it'll work out. She felt that she wasn't mature enough for me (she is 5 1/2 years younger than me), and the distance between us didn't help matters.

    Long story short, I was heartbroken to lose this girl, and suddenly at that. I couldn't help but feel like I did something wrong, but she reassured me that I was a "perfect" boyfriend to her. If only I can find a girl like her again...

  • My worst break-up story was from this summer. I had been seeing this guy and things were going really well. He seemed to have his life in order; great job, didn't live with his parents, had friends and a social life, so he was already way above past guys I had dated.

    Things were getting more serious so I let him know of a hard time I had 2 1/2 years ago which was a lot for me to tell anyone. He reassured me that what happened didn't matter and that he was fine with everything.

    Next morning, I get a facebook message saying he was "not at a point in his life to support me like I needed". First of all, I didn't ask for support, I just felt it was something he should know. Second of all, FACEBOOK! Really, you would think a 27 year old guy could at least tell me over the phone or instantly with a text. When I told him I didn't need support he pulled out about three other reasons why he wasn't at a point in his life to be in a relationship.

    Moral of the story is guys, don't break up over Facebook, Twitter or any other social media. Man up and do it in person no matter how hard it may be.

  • Break ups just plain suck... Can not wait for the back on the market party!
