Things to do for March 31, 2011
Cubs, Champagne and Mix Master Mike
The weekend just knows that this definitely is the year.
A good, solid, no-nonsense mustache is usually its own reward. But if you happen to have one handy tonight, it will also get you $5 off all you-can-eat sliders and all the Goose Island beer you need.
Paris after dark. Sultry. Mysterious. Needs better music, though. So at Paris Club’s new Thursday night party, the lights will be turned down low, the DJ turned up, and champagne and escargot will be around every corner. Try to act surprised.
You’re filled with so much hope for the Cubs that you can hardly sleep: which, conveniently, means you can start Opening Day mayhem as early as possible. Look for live bands, Vienna Beef, ice-cold beer and the pervasive aroma of optimism at Yak-Zies’s annual morning melee.
Travis Barker and Mix Master Mike
Take one rocker DJ from Blink-182. Add the scratch stylist from the Beastie Boys. Put them on a stage in a dark demimonde. Then watch as magic happens. Actually, you only have to do that last bit—Enclave is taking care of the rest.
Trovata and Tacos at Apartment No. 9
This extended chilliness can’t last forever. You’ll need summer gear sooner or later. And when you do: bam. Whip out the Trovata you picked up for 10% off at this trunk show. There will be Big Star tacos and drinks, too—sort of a patio preseason warm-up.
Uptown Pie Company Opens
Life is full of uncertainty. Doubt. Equivocation. But there is one abiding truth: pie is good. So swing by for a chicken potpie or shrimp cobbler before heading into bourbon pecan or banana cream territory. Which, come to think of it, may introduce more uncertainty.
Starlin Castro at Sprinkles
By this time Saturday, the Cubs will have played the first two home games of the season. We don’t know what will happen. But you may need a cupcake. Sprinkles will have special Red Velvet Cubs cupcakes with infielder Starlin Castro to help sell them, which will help your Cupcake Eating Average.
