When will the Cubs win the World Series? Ah man, we have no clue - maybe when blue jeans aren't sexy anymore? (Ahem) Oh well. If you want to shake a few Cubbies' hands and pick up a new pair of summer jeans, next Thursday, May 12, from 6-9pm, The Denim Lounge will celebrate the grand opening of its new Roscoe Village location with Chicago Cubs outfielders Reed Johnson and Tyler Colvin. These guys are taking time out of their busy day of practice to sign autographs for shoppers who make a $20 donation to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Included with the donation is one raffle ticket to win a $400 gift certificate to The Denim Lounge. In celebration of the grand opening event, everything in the store will be 20% off. Space is limited even though the new store is twice the size of their previous location, this event is expected to be a hot one (especially if Tyler & Reed are using the Butt Cam) and space is limited so it is suggested you RSVP here.
