Things to do for March 10, 2011
Free Burgers, Cheese Curds and De Niro
The weekend has been dyed green.
Gratis Burgers from M Burger
A year ago, a part of Tru’s kitchen morphed into a humble burger stand. People were shocked. But you knew a winner when you tasted one. So today they’re rewarding your foresight with a free burger with any purchase... and you would have settled for a slice of cake.
As St. Pat’s approaches, you should reflect on the properties of a truly magnificent stout. The Goose Island brewmaster will be offering the chance to sample Bourbon County Stout along with other rare beers tonight. All guaranteed 100% green-free.
Lennon had Ono. Dylan had Rotolo. Sheen, his goddesses. But as muses go, De Niro is sorely underappreciated, as you can see in this exhibit of iconic images by Scorsese set photographer Steve Schapiro. And if anyone asks, the answer is: why, yes, you are looking at them.
Fish Fridays at 33 Club
We see fish in your future. So Jerry Kleiner will offer one-third off all of his fish dishes every Friday at 33 Club, because nothing says sacrifice like a big martini with your miso-glazed Pacific sturgeon.
Patio Party at Cedar Hotel
Rivers will be dyed. People will wear green. They will swear up and down they are Irish and that you must kiss them. Of course, you know all this. The real question: who serves baskets of cheese curds and brats at 9am to go with your beer? Consider that mystery solved.
