Tonight: Cocktails, Manicures and Massages

Drink specials include $5 house wines and martinis and $3 sake and Sapporo beer, plus, select items from the lounge menu for $3-$5. All proceeds from dessert sales to the Red Cross for Japan relief, which is all the justification you should need for a sweet ending. 7-10 p.m., 358 W Ontario, RSVP to 312-335-9888.
