Yes, it may seem contradictory that you can burn calories and get in shape during cocktail hour, but it's true.

afterWERQ hosts a series of fitness parties at area bars that offer a guilt-free excuse to trade in the gym for a different setting. 

The dance fitness classes come compolete a bumpin’ soundtrack and takes place on the dance floor.

And as a reward for all those muscles you just worked out, you can treat yourself to some low-cal post-workout cocktails afterward.

The next event takes place February 17 at Wicker Park's Double Door and tickets are $15 in advance.
