This week, we’re bringing you two nights at an expansive resort in the Catskills, including an afternoon race around Monticello Motor Club, a members-only racetrack. (Seinfeld’s a member—wave as you pass.) We’re also getting you 33% off a handsome waxed-canvas weekend bag, and first dibs on a revolutionary portable speaker.
Things to do for October 06, 2011
Penthouse Cocktails, the Blackhawks and a Different Kind of Marathon
The weekend is a marathon <i>and </i>a sprint.
A Pop-Up Party in a Penthouse
The John Allan’s penthouse is so much more than just a place for a precision trim and a quick game of pool. Tonight, it’s a place for free drinks, custom suits and Italian silk ties. That’s because the Nicholas Joseph pop-up officially sets up tonight as John Allan’s really suave roomie.
Drinks with Extra Ice
Not that you need an excuse for a champagne toast, but the Blackhawks’ opener is a pretty good one. After your complimentary bubbly, enter raffles for Bobby Hull–signed memorabilia and enjoy unfettered access to 23-ounce Bud Lights for just $5 each. Also: the game will be on.
A Good Reason to Drink
On the one hand, this is just a benefit for a school. Which is nice, but still. On the other hand, you can sample 50 craft beers and eat food from Hopleaf, M. Henry and Gaztro-Wagon, among others. So we think it’s pretty important that you be there.
Crisp autumn days. There’s nothing better. Unless you add wine, beer, a few bands and a day trip up to Michigan. The annual fest includes winery tours, a farmers’ market, rock bands and hayrides. Really, the only way to see New Buffalo.
A dessert crawl through Andersonville—an idea so crazy it just might work. As proof: this is the sixth year they’ve done it. From Ann Sather’s cinnamon rolls to In Fine Spirits’ mini pumpkin pies with bourbon cream, it’s like a Chicago marathon where you gain calories.
