Big Chill Event at Sully’s Public House
BEER COOLERS

Big Chill Event at Sully’s Public House

Now that snow and bitter cold have arrived, you’re gearing up to take on the nearest slope. But first: some drinks. Burton is hosting this fund-raiser with an open bar, appetizers, snowboard raffles and a few Sherpas who might just volunteer for your next trip to Devil’s Head.

Dec 9, 7-10pm, $35, Sully’s House, 1501 N Dayton St (at Blackhawk), 773-244-1234

Saturday
12 Bars of Christmas in Wrigleyville
SLOSHING THROUGH THE SNOW

12 Bars of Christmas in Wrigleyville

It starts early. It ends late. And somewhere in between, things become a blur of whiskey, tragic sweaters and visits from Santa. But until Christmas morning arrives, warm up at an all-day affair that hits all the high points of Wrigleyville drinking. But just don’t drink and sleigh ride.

Dec 11, 8am, $27.50-$30, starts at The Cubby Bear, 1059 W Addison St, 773-327-1662

Pinup Calendar Burlesque Party
PAGING BETTY

Pinup Calendar Burlesque Party

SpyBar celebrates the release of its 2011 pinup girl calendar by throwing a burlesque party, replete with bumping, grinding and Miss January wearing less than Baby New Year. Plus, you’ll finally find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for mechanic on your list.

Dec 11, 10pm-5am, $20 after midnight, SpyBar, 646 N Franklin St, 312-337-2191, RSVP here

Monday
Lance Briggs Party at 42° N Latitude
SACKING OUT

Lance Briggs Party at 42° N Latitude

You know Bears linebacker Lance Briggs as a fearsome opponent on the field. But off the field, you know he’s... wait, you don’t really know him. Rectify that when he hosts this open-bar/cocktail/raffle night/Monday Night Football viewing benefit party.

Dec 13, 7pm, $55, 42° N Latitude, 4500 N Lincoln Ave (at Sunnyside), 773-907-2226

Jigger, Beaker and Glass Party
DRINKING OLD FASHIONEDS

Jigger, Beaker and Glass Party

Charles H. Baker Jr. was sort of a Julia Child for booze. Friend to Hemingway and Faulkner, he was serious about the gentlemanly art of cocktailing. So be there when the cocktailing gentlemen at the Whistler recreate his best recipes. Feel free to bring your favorite literary giant.

Dec 13, 6pm, no cover, The Whistler, 2421 N Milwaukee Ave, 773-227-3530
