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.
Things to do for October 14, 2010
Fashion Models, Free Pizza and Inception
The weekend is popping the clutch.
Free Pizza in the Gold Coast
Yet another HomeMade Pizza Co. location really isn’t that big of a deal. But a new HomeMade Pizza Co. that has the good sense to hand out free slices to say hello is another thing altogether. And here’s the kicker: the slices come pre-cooked.

Brazilian Cassoulet at In Fine Spirits
At the gastropub in Andersonville, you can order up this stick-to-your-ribs freijoada—Brazil’s version of a cassoulet (a stew of beef, pork, black beans, pumpkin and chili served with a maple-infused crepe). It complements any whiskey you can throw at it. Though we suggest sipping it.
Royster with the Oyster Street Fest
There’s a tent. There are rock bands. There is ice-cold beer. But mostly, there are oysters. Thousands and thousands of briny, fresh oysters. And the chance for you to win $1,000 by downing more than anyone else. You officially have one day to practice...
Models and Popcorn
Chicago Fashion Focus begins next week, giving the city a chance to catch up with where you are the other 51 weeks of the year. This party is a rousing head start: wine tastings, martinis, Garrett Popcorn. Oh, and models. Don’t forget the models.
Denim Sale at DNA2050
Finally, the chilly weather means you can get the leather jacket out of storage—or, you know, buy a new one. Here to help you rationalize your purchase, a one-year anniversary sale with 15% off anything in the store. Well, maybe not the lights...
Inception Party at Spy Bar
Your mind is a dark labyrinth of juicy secrets—not unlike Spy Bar on a good night. This Inception-themed party gently probes your subconscious with an hour of free cocktails before blowing your mind with a fantasy costume contest at midnight. Cue the Marion Cotillard dream sequence.
