    It may not be the first Friday of the month, but sometimes you have to try again to get it right.

    When you say goodbye to "The Man" Friday, don't even bother to pass Go -- head directly over to the Griffin Lounge for an after-work party with a purpose.

    Windy City Social

    is throwing a fund-raising party at the Griffin Lounge (326 W. Chicago Ave.) from 6 - 8 p.m.

    The proceeds benefit Alumni for Public Schools, a program that helps enrich the lives of Chicago Public School students. That'll make you feel better as you mingle with other professionals while noshing on cocktails and appetizers, including a chocolate station from The Melting Pot.
