Reckless Records Hits the Game Room

Hear sweet tunes from Reckless Records in the Game Room


What’s better than hanging with friends, listening to hot tunes and getting deals on booze? Doing all that at the Game Room at The Chicago Athletic Assoication on Monday nights when Reckless Records gets behind the decks!

Head to the Game Room every Monday starting at 8 p.m. to hear an eclectic DJ set from the folks behind Reckless Records. If you’ve ever spent any time browsing the vinyl or CDs at their Wicker Park, East Lakeview and Loop locations, you know Reckless, one of Chicago’s best independent music shops, has a truly insane mix of tunes. Grab a spot, indulge in $3 Hamm’s specials (or really treat yourself for $5 and get a Hamm’s and an Old Fashioned shot) and tasty bites from the Land & Sea Dept. crew and settle in. Play bocce, billiards, checkers, foosball, shuffleboard and more — all for free! First up: DJ Matt Jencik, one of the buyers at Reckless, on January 25th from 8 p.m. to midnight.
