Hey, bub, consider yourself a champagne aficionado? Join "The Bub Club" at Pops for Champagne, where membership certainly has its benefits. The newly unveiled program at this River North nightlife destination allows participants to accrue points that result in very attractive perks, all by doing what comes naturally -- drinking the sparkly stuff.
By joining "The Bub Club," you'll receive one point every time you order the monthly glass pour special (which is accompanied by an amuse bouche). For every five points accrued, you'll get a $20 Pops gift certificate; build up to 50 points, and you'll get a special champagne tasting for 10 of your closest friends. Other perks include 10 percent off the menu bottle price for all monthly featured champagnes, advance notice of exclusive tastings and events at Pops, ticket pre-sales to all public tastings, special events and promotions, and a subscription to the monthly "Bub Club" e-newsletter offering education and tasting news.
You can sign up for "The Bub Club" on the Pops Web site or the next time you find yourself at the lounge (601 N. State St., 312-266-7677). The one-time initiation fee is $20.
