Things to do for September 10, 2010
Sex Columnists, Pig Roasts and a Gratis Haircut
The weekend is ready to be tackled.
When a sex columnist breaks up with her longtime boyfriend, there’s only one thing to do. Meet her for a drink. RedEye’s Ana Fernatt is taking over the Fifty/50 in celebration of her singlehood, and bringing all her single ladies. Plus, for the first hour, she’s buying the vodka.
Prediction: your happy hour is going to be happier than usual. The reason: you’ll have more than 250 bottles at your disposal, thanks to the open-air Dionysian shindig. Your eats are supplied by Markethouse and Palermo’s Pizza—you love a good red with your pepperoni.
Gratis Haircuts at Bloomingdale’s
There’s nothing like the feeling after a haircut. Especially one you don’t pay for. That’s followed by a discount on your next one. John Allan’s makes all this happen when they set up shop in Bloomingdale’s. They’ll even throw in a manicure—you’re always happy to lend a hand.
This weekend is not all about pigskin. It’s also about bacon. At the Chicago Bacon Takedown, you’ll help judge various bacon-infused concoctions from amateur chefs—anything from bacon vodka to bacon cupcakes. You’ve been training for this your whole life.
Pig Roast and Six-Packs at Old Town Social
A bacon competition is nice, but if you’re looking for a more complete appreciation of porcine pleasures, this all-day whole pig roast offers barbecue pork sandwiches, coleslaw and, to wash it all down, ice-cold six-packs of PBR, Old Style and—what else?—Hamm’s. Naturally.
