A taste of Vegas in Chicago? Sure, why not. You might want to wear a little extra lipstick tonight if you hope to outshine the drag queens here. The Baton Show Lounge has been staging raucous performances for more than 45 years now, and bachelorettes go crazy for it. Expect large estrogen-filled groups hooting and hollering at the stage and service that’s fairly disinterested. Shows are Wednesday through Sunday at 8:30 and 10:30pm, and 12:30am (the later you go, the rowdier it’ll be). Reservations are accepted and recommended on weekends.
