Things to do for October 14, 2010

The Weekender

Bison Burgers, Humphrey Bogart and Stogies

The weekend is looking at you, kid.

Thursday
Looking Good After a Hangover
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Looking Good After a Hangover

Scientists have shown that rough nights lead to rougher mornings-after. Fortunately, the scientists at Nickel have invented Morning After Rescue Gel—a hangover-curing face cream infused with caffeine, citrus and soy protein to smooth any lingering roughness. Now, our scientists at Perks are bringing it to you for 40% off. Let’s hear it for science.

Friday
A Burger (and Rum) Lover’s Dream
BURGER ME

A Burger (and Rum) Lover’s Dream

Burgers and cocktails. Simple and amazing. But let’s complicate things a bit. Tomorrow night on the House rooftop, you’ll have the option of everything from bison burgers to foie gras burgers (as many as you want), and an open bar where mixologists will pour glasses of rum onto an ice cube they chip to perfection in front of you. You hate imperfect ice cubes.

Oct 15, 6-10pm, $75 per person, The House, 2200 Victory Ave, tickets here

Saturday
You, Casablanca and 5,000 Friends
BOGART

You, Casablanca and 5,000 Friends

Home theaters: fine. But sometimes you just want to watch one of history’s greatest films on a humongous outdoor screen with a few thousand acquaintances. And because staring at Ingrid Bergman makes a man hungry, you can buy chicken curry sandwiches and cocktails. Just don’t get any whiskey on your white tux jacket.

Sunday
Watching the Cowboys in a Home-y Bar
SOFAS

Watching the Cowboys in a Home-y Bar

In case you thought of throwing a house party for this Sunday’s crucial Cowboys game but then thought better of it, consider moving things to the Alcove. They’ll have $2 domestic bottles, $3 Sierra Nevada drafts, comfy sofas that make you feel like you’re at your buddy’s place—and they’ll let you order food from anywhere that’ll deliver. Now it’s just up to you, Romo...

Sundays, noon-10pm, The Alcove, 2907 State St, 214-871-2200

Wednesday
Post-Dinner Cocktails and Jazz
ALL THAT

Post-Dinner Cocktails and Jazz

No offense to your friends’ karaoke skills, but good live music can be hard to find. So you’ll be happy to know that your favorite restaurant with a bocce ball court, Park, is now hosting live jazz every Wednesday in their back lounge, Bar Celine. The Pork Schnitzel goes great with Coltrane...

Wednesdays, 8:30pm-midnight, Bar Celine at Park, 1921 Henderson Ave, 214-824-3343

Next Thursday
Big Tobacco, Meet Big Chocolate
CHOCOLATE THUNDER

Big Tobacco, Meet Big Chocolate

Good news on the tobacco-infused chocolate front: next week, Havana Social Club is bringing in a master chocolatier from Chocolate Secret to offer you some mind-blowing candies like chocolates injected with tobacco leaves. You’ll probably want to pair these with Havana’s private-label cigars and some wine. And, obviously, an over-the-top Tony Montana accent.
