Things to do for December 02, 2010
Bratwurst, Hanukkah Beer and Bob Dylan
<p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt"> <span style="color: windowtext">The weekend chops down its own Christmas tree.</span>
Two Brothers Beer Brats at SmallBar
Say you own a local brewery. Things are good. But you start wondering if there’s life beyond brew. Then you remember your passion for sausage. So you team up with a chef to create a line of beer-infused bratwurst. Finally, you celebrate with a beer-and-brat party at SmallBar. The end.
Modern Man Christmas at Underground
You’re not really the holiday sweater type. You’re more the type who knows a thing or two about nice clothes, good cocktails and breakdancing to “Jingle Bells.” So you might feel at home during this holiday-style event featuring all of the above—though the breakdancing’s on you.
<i>Don’t Look Back</i> Screening
Sometimes you think this portion of your life should be extensively documented (tastefully edited, of course). To help you get a sense of how it’s done, the guys from Sound Opinions are screening D.A. Pennebaker’s masterpiece from Bob Dylan’s 1965 UK Tour. Afterward, you can scout for your own Marianne Faithfull.
Chez Violette Opens in Rogers Park
You could go for some really good Haitian food right about now, but you need one thing—a Haitian restaurant. Prepare yourself: your craving for fried plantains, goat stew and the Haitian version of a Hot Pocket—pate—shall finally be satisfied at this new Rogers Park joint.
Hanukkah Beer Pairings at Jerry’s
It’s about time someone took the guesswork out of pairing the right beer with matzo ball soup. For this special holiday menu, Jerry’s will set you up with just the right Hanukkah beer for your matzo and the appropriate Scottish ale for your kugel. Such a mensch.
