    Who couldn't use a little champagne right about now?

    Even in these trying economic times, there are still occasions big and small to celebrate. Pops For Champagne, River North's sophisticated lounge dedicated to the sparkly stuff, has a persuasive new promotion to get guests sipping bubbly while nursing their (possibly somewhat battered) positive outlooks on life. "Toast on Tuesday" will feature discounted glass pours and a feel-good cause.

    Pops' "Toast on Tuesday" campaign, which will kick off on April 14, will feature five-ounce glasses of any champagne on the lounge's world-class list offered at the three-ounce price (starting at $8 a glass). More than 10 selections are available by the glass at Pops, including such festive favorites as Charles Heidsieck 2000, G.H. Mumm Carte Classique and Jean Milan Blanc de Blancs a Oger.

    Even if you don't have something to commemorate, "Toast on Tuesday" is good for your karma. Pops For Champagne will donate $1 to the Chicago Jobs Council for every glass sold during "Toast on Tuesday" events.

    The Chicago Jobs Council is dedicated to advocating for employment and career advancement opportunities for people living in poverty through a city-wide coalition of training organizations, advocacy groups, businesses and individuals.
