Things to do for September 23, 2010
Disco Brunch, Erotic Shakespeare and Pumpkin Milkshakes
The Velvet Massage at the Dana Hotel
There are times when you wish you could just drape yourself in velvet. But until that golden day, there’s this: a massage with vetiver oils, which makes your skin feel like velvet. If that doesn’t work, the complimentary glass of whiskey at the end might.
Mexican Hot Dogs at Big Star
A Chicago-style dog and a cold beer—great for a hot summer day. Also: any other day. Big Star’s bacon-wrapped Sonoran dog with mayo, mustard, jalapeño sauce, pinto beans, onions and tomatoes can stand up to anything you can pour in your shot glass. Warning: asking for ketchup may get you deported.
Milkshake Social at DMK Burger Bar
It might not feel like it today, but fall is finally, officially here. And that means just one thing: watching Jay Cutler throw interceptions. Oh, and pumpkin pie milkshakes. DMK’s serving them up with housemade pumpkin puree, Petersen’s vanilla ice cream and malted milk. Spike to taste.
Erotica and Burlesque at The Spot
It goes something like this: you go to this dive in Uptown, where a burlesque act called American Demigods will perform the first act of an erotic play inspired in part by Shakespeare (that old cad). Then, a burlesque performance breaks out. So basically, it’s like a night at your place.
Rib-a-Que Smokeout at Moonshine
Step 1: Take a parking lot, and fill it with 16 chefs from the likes of Socca and Citizen. Step 2: Add beer. Step 3: The chefs cook the ribs. Step 4: You eat them. Step 5: Cast a vote and crown a winner. Step 6: Repeat steps 3 and 4.
Disco Brunch at District
Whatever vodka-soaked mayhem you indulged in the night before, nothing will get you back on your feet like... disco. And more vodka. And $5 Bloodys, some flat-screens and an all-you-can-eat buffet. Wearing a Travolta-style white suit: not discouraged.
