My passion for all things alcohol-related started at a rather young age. Like most teenagers, I experimented with alcohol and was first in line to attend the party for whoever’s parents were out of town that night. I discovered pretty quickly that I like booze.
And my friends discovered pretty quickly that when I’m drinking I can be convinced to do some pretty dumb things.
Case in point: After a night of boozing, my friends and I somehow ended up at a local “park” (really it’s a retention base/hill). This park was about two blocks from my house and known for having a pretty big Fourth...
My dad, brother, uncle, aunt and I all decided to get scuba certified when I was 15 years old. We have gone diving in a few lakes in the area over the years. If you like having zero visibility and experiencing extremely cold, brown water, then diving in a lake in Illinois is for you.
After graduating college, my family decided to plan a vacation down in the Florida Keys and fit in some diving. I had never gone diving in the ocean and, more important to this story, had not been diving since I was a teenager. My dad and brother, who had been actively diving and planned annual trips together, told...

One of my good friends who is a teacher not only is beautiful but also the sweetest, nicest person you’ll ever meet. People are constantly trying to set her up with men. Unfortunately, she doesn’t like “dating.”
I mean, I really can’t understand what she is talking about. Who doesn’t love telling the same tired stories over and over? Who doesn’t love being all appropriate, polite and dignified? Who doesn’t love hiding their obsession with small people and facial hair?
Oh. Too soon?
After much persistence by his mother, she finally agreed to be set up with the son of her school’s...
As I’ve mentioned before, I raise my rainbow flag high. Queens definitely know how to party, and I like to party. Peas in a pod, people!
So, I do enjoy going to a fun gay bar on occasion. As a woman, there is absolutely no pressure because no one notices you. I like to dust off my old miniskirt, try out some new eye shadow techniques and then go shake my groove thang. It also helps that gay men like to fawn over me and tell me how beautiful I am, which is never a bad thing to hear.
A few months ago I met up with some friends in Boystown. Sure enough, I had opted to wear a rather short skirt....
There were several “Leigh” stories that came from my Australia trip. I’m a moron. I do stupid stuff all the time. It seems to be heightened when vacationing, as my mind literally is in the clouds. How I have not been pick-pocketed or robbed is a modern-day miracle. I walk around with a big goofy grin on my face, looking up at the sky, practically wearing a sign that says: “I have hundreds of small, unmarked bills in my unzipped pocket right next to my camera and passport, please take them!”
During my Australia trip, my friend and I made our way to the Outback. We opted to join...
Once a month at The Burlington is a sex show. And no, it’s not what you think! This show involves gifted writers who share their comedic sex and dating stories for the entire bar to hear. In between storytelling time they have trivia and answer questions from the audience. It’s all in good fun!
After attending my last Cubs game of the season (and starting to drink at noon), I made my way over to The Burlington to attend my first Sunday Night Sex Show. My good friend...
It’s another beautiful Saturday and I can once again be found at Wrigley Field. A bunch of friends and I had bleacher tickets, and man was it a hot one that day. The only way to cool down was to chug beer!
After the game my friends and I did a bar crawl of sorts and ended up at the classy joint Sluggers. Given my stumbling and double...
