My Drink On (MDO) is an innovative approach to group buying for the top nightlife venues in the Windy City that incorporates socializing, networking and philanthropy into a single experience. What does this mean!? We have great drink deals and specials to the hottest bars, clubs, restaurants and lounges. We will also be hosting some great events, accompanied by a great drink deal and offer charity events including a great drink special.

The UNICEF Tap Project

The UNICEF Tap Project was born in New York City based on a simple concept: restaurants would ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free, and all funds raised would support UNICEF’s efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world.

Make sure to stop by their table and learn more about their businesses!
