The Kit Kat Lounge and Supper Club, 3700 N. Halsted, a gay bar that features female impersonators, now has “The Effen Ozzie GuillenTini” on the menu.
The martini is made with assorted fresh fruits, vodka and served with a complimentary Sun-Times sports section for $8.50.
“[Guillen] has been a supporter of the gay community,” McCartney said. “What he said was no big deal, and we wanted people to know it’s time to get over it.”
“We decided to put “effen” in front of it because that’s what he called Mariotti,” said Gisigler, the club’s owner. He said the club will sell the martini through the end of the baseball season.

This afternoon at Wrigley, “The Bad Guys,” in the words of Ken Harrelson, are leading the White Sox, 7-5 in the 4th. Juan Uribe connected for a three-run HR to centerfield off Carlos Zambrano to cut the Cubs’ lead moments ago. Earlier, Zambrano and Michael Barrett homered off Mark Buehrle in the home half of the first.
A day after David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez hit a pair of home runs apiece off the Marlins, the Red Sox and Fish are tied at 3 in the bottom of the 7th. Boston’s 17 game errorless streak came to an end last night when catcher Doug Mirabelli’s errant throw allowed Hanley Ramirez to take 3rd after swiping second. Boston’s record is impressive enough as is, but equally improbable when you consider it was set while putting Manny in left field every day.
