Things to do for September 15, 2011
This Friday, You’ll Toga
The weekend looks upon Monday with a mix of pity and contempt.
And Today’s Must-Have Boozy Float Is...
We know you like a good boozy ice cream float. So Uncle Fatty’s has ingeniously turned the new Alec Baldwin–inspired Ben & Jerry’s flavor, Schweddy Balls (vanilla with rum fudge, malted milk balls), into one. You’ll never look at Schweddy Balls the same way again.
A 21st-Birthday Party Deserves to Toga
The year was 1990, and things were momentous. German unification. Iraq invades Kuwait. The world’s first webpage. Chicago traders have a new place to drink crazy cocktails. Celebrate at this toga party, with 1990 prices on booze and hot wings. Feels good to be legal.
Green Tie Meets the Yellow Brick Road
You do your part to support the environment. And if that includes wearing a tuxedo, drinking champagne and dancing until the wee hours with young power players at this year’s Wizard of Oz–themed event, you will do just that. Bonus points for busting out a green tux.
Brunch Pot Roast Is Served
There’s a new brunch in town, sports fans. We think it may just have what it takes to play in your league: Angus rib eye and eggs. Pot-roast eggs Benedict. Brisket hash. Copious amounts of televised football. We think this calls for a mimosa.
A Heroic Battle of Bacon
Chefs only have one hard-and-fast rule: bacon makes everything taste better. Well, there are some others, but for this event it’s the only one that matters. You’ll vote on the best use of bacon, whether in candy apples, English muffins or better yet, your mouth.
