Things to do for October 13, 2011
This Weekend: Oysters, Grilled Cheese, Poker
The weekend is stockpiling candy corn.
Now for Something Hot and Cheesy...
Dion Antic has made a name for himself in Chicago nightlife. Now, he’s making a name for himself in your afternoonlife. This school-lunchroom-inspired sandwichery oozes with provolone, truffle cheddar and aged prosciutto. Bring your favorite lunch lady.
Macau. Vegas. Monte Carlo. Nice places. But this weekend, it’s Hammond. The reason: you can clean up because the World Series of Poker is anteing up $500,000 for a 12-day tourney. Also, it’s nothing personal, but you and Macau need a break from each other.
The air is crisp. The leaves are turning. An unmistakable briny fragrance is enveloping Hubbard Street. It can only mean one of two things: either Shaw’s annual Royster with the Oyster fest is happening or... Actually, we don’t care to speculate on alternatives.
Everyone’s favorite game show/musical/improv thingy is setting up shop in a new theater. It’s basically So You Think You Can Dance meets Jeopardy, with a frenetic emcee pulling you from the audience to test your nerves, wits and/or mettle for cash and prizes. But mostly for glory.
Your Fall Finery Awaits. As Does a Beer.
You need to pick up some basics this weekend. Leather boots. T-shirts designed by a Bulls player. Vintage cufflinks. Beer. Artisan s’mores. Blanket-lined baseball caps. A banh mi. We know of a place with all these: Dose Market. It would’ve been really awkward if we didn’t.
