Memorial Day Weekend also means your favorite adult stars are flocking to Chicago for the annual Grabby Awards, hosted by Grab Magazine. Come see some of the hottest names in the industry as they announce this year’s best top, twink and more. The 2016 Grabbys return to The Metro, 3730 N Clark, for a show hosted by ChiChi LaRue and Honey West and the sexy studs Mickey Taylor, Levi Karter, Diego Sans, JJ Knight and Dallas Stelle.
This year’s show also includes an appearance by celebrity and funnyman Bruce Vilanch and special performances by Dida Ritz, Bebe Sweetbriar and Mickey Taylor.
“I think everyone comes back to celebrate the industry every year because it’s such a loose, fun event centered around something we all love: sex,” Stacy Bridges, editor for Grab Magazine, told ChicagoPride.com. “It’s also a change to meet and mingle with some of your favorite fantasy men.”
A host of events surrounds the Grabbys, most of them teetering with special appearances and performances from the weekend’s nominees. On Friday night Falcon Studios is taking over the Lucky Horseshoe, 3169 N Halsted, while the CockyBoys are appearing live at Sidetrack, 3349 N Halsted, for an underwear auction and more. After Saturday’s event, join your favorite stars at Debauchery, the the official Grabby’s 2016 Afterparty at Charlie’s, 3726 N Broadway. Round out your weekend at the Kink E Post Grabby Brunch at North End, 3733 N Halsted, on Saturday for interviews with the winners and nominees and to meet the stars you danced drunk with the previous night.
