Our eyes are set on one thing: the Super Bowl. For your snacking pleasure, Perks is hooking you up with bacon bourbon caramel corn (yes, it’s as delicious as it sounds) and your choice of three moonshine-infused salsas or barbecue sauces. And to complete your experience: surround sound speakers.
Things to do for January 26, 2012
This Weekend: Wine, Mussels and the White Sox
Congratulations, you’re preapproved for the weekend.
When Randy Zweiban introduces a new menu, you want to know about it. You may also want to eat it. So start with some cava and duck meatballs before sitting down for five courses with wine pairings before finishing with the traditional cinnamon churros and sherry course.
Meet People Who Like People
People Lounge has been around for six years. Impressive. But not quite as impressive as a party that starts with an hour of free rum and beer, followed by tapas, $4 drafts, $10 tequila flights and one rumba-tango-flamenco-funk band. Basically P-Funk meets the Gipsy Kings.
Tuman’s Gives You an Upgrade
The former Tuman’s Alcohol Abuse Center seems to be coming up in the world. It just gave itself a makeover by polishing up the interior, trading in its shot-and-wings menu for Amish chicken, Belgian ale mussels and 28 drafts. This is your kind of rehab.
Ozzie’s gone. Ventura is in. As for you: if you can start the season knowing you gave Southpaw—or at least Frank Thomas—a great big bear hug, things are going to be okay for the White Sox. The fan expo is your best chance for peace of mind.
There’s a time for housemade bitters and wasabi tinctures. Then there’s a time for piling into an old yellow school bus, putting a road pop in your hand and experiencing three of this town’s best old-man bars. That time is this Sunday. And when you get back to Lottie’s, it’s karaoke time.
