Join us on December 2nd as we celebrate Windy City’s 10th anniversary with our very own partner workout and fundraiser for Barbells For Boobs. Everyone has a right to know if they’re living with breast cancer. There’s a tremendous need for all types of support, from being proactive, to detection, treatment and survivorship. Find a buddy and sign up today—it's all about having fun!

We’re going to get down in the AM, sweat and raise some money for a great cause, then let loose in the PM with our Anniversary / Holiday party at Matilda (8pm–???). Come party BIG with us!
