Playing with the Playgirl

I got a text last Thursday from my dear friend Ronnie Kroell. ("Make Me A Supermodel") He and his boyfriend Taylor Proffitt were coming to town and wanted to fellowship. Well twist my arm!

On Saturday we all converged on Minibar Ultra Lounge and Cafe (3341 N. Halsted St. 773-871-6227) in Boystown for great libations and tunes.  

It was the best being back together with Ronnie. It had been too long!

It was such a nice time and truly great to get to know Taylor. He's an impressive guy. I see why Ronnie likes him so much. Joining in the fun was my dear friend Michal, socialite blogger, Paul Blackburn, Advisor Edward and even a surprise hello from Steve Rollins and Dr. Dave.

Earlier this year, Ronnie confirmed exclusively to that he will be the next to grace the cover of Playgirl magazine. From what I've heard, the photo shoot went really well.

One thing's for sure, that Minibar really delivers on a good time! Yes, they all are hot, but they are also pretty damn professional. Talking with co-owner, John Dalton, I learned their new "tex-mex" restaurant opening in Boystown will be one damn tasty eatery. I can't wait!

Additionally, not only is Minibar participating in this week's Dining Out for Life on the café side, but that includes cocktails until 11PM. Eat and drink for a difference!

A special thank you to Robin, David, and Alex for taking such good care of me! Be sure to check out all the photos from Saturday night on

PS: I hope you will all participate in this Thursday's Dining Out for Life! I will be at Boystown's HB Home Bistro with my Besti!
