Tag Archives: Eclectic Afterwork Sessions

Apparently, Nightlife in Chicago is Getting Eclectic.

This Thursday and Friday both have Events scheduled that both trumpet their “eclectic” nature:

“Eclectic Relaxation” at Simones in Pilsen/Bridgeport (featuring my guy Tapedek and Sotipop on the tables)

and the “Eclectic After Work Session” at Cuatro in the South Loop (a weekly Friday event featuring the legendary Vick Lavender)

I don’t know.  To me, “eclectic” is akin to “eccentric” in its sheer ambiguity and code-wordiness.  That does not mean I don’t support these events (I do).  Maybe, my real issue is that I just don’t want another situation where a word becomes over-used (remember “extreme”? Or, how many storefronts in the 80s & 90s on the South Side either had “Express” or “Factory” in their name….).  Just as long as Eclectic doesn’t become the new “grown & sexy”.
