The future is now: What better way to ring in 2010 than at Touch, a new "iBar" in Roscoe Village where patrons use interactive screens to order drinks and send titillating texts to neighboring tables? Our photographer headed to the space, formerly home to Bungalow Loungebar, on New Year’s Eve, where she spotted revelers trying out the new technology—as well as engaging in some old-fashioned face-to-face flirting. Because ordering your drink from a cocktail waitress may be so last year, but a New Year’s kiss never goes out of style.
