The Velvet Massage at the Dana Hotel
SILKY SMOOTH

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.

DOG DAYS

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.

411: Available at Big Star, 1531 N Damen Ave, 773-235-4039

Saturday
Milkshake Social at DMK Burger Bar
GOT MILK

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.

Available Sep 25-30, DMK Burger Bar, 2954 N Sheffield Ave, 773-360-8686

Erotica and Burlesque at The Spot
’TIS A PITY

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.

Sep 25, 4pm, The Spot, 4437 N Broadway, 773-728-8934

Rib-a-Que Smokeout at Moonshine
RIB OFF

Rib-a-Que Smokeout at Moonshine

Sep 25, noon-6pm, $35, Moonshine, 1824 W Division St, 773-862-8686

Sunday
Disco Brunch at District
STAYIN’ ALIVE

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.

Sundays, 3-11pm, District Bar, 170 W Ontario St, 312-337-3477
