Things to do for February 16, 2012

The Weekender

Hot Shaves, Crawfish and Skee-Ball

Laissez le bon weekend rouler.

Thursday
This, Folks, Is What You Call Synergy
REVVED AND READY

This, Folks, Is What You Call Synergy

The Chicago Auto Show is showing off the latest developments in vehicular food-delivery systems (Nissan’s got a new truck for that). The best part: this food meetup, featuring all your favorite mobile vendors: the Slide Ride, Brown Bag Lunch and Tamale Spaceship—the future of intergalactic tamales.

The One Thing Valentine’s Lacked...
SKEE-DADDLE

The One Thing Valentine’s Lacked...

All in all, Tuesday went pretty well. It just lacked one thing: skee-ball. So grab a partner/ringer and pair up for this co-ed couples tourney. There’s plenty of cold beer, and the chance to win Blackhawks tickets—which were also in short supply on Tuesday.

Saturday
A Quick Shave at Haberdash EDC
STUBBLE DOWN

A Quick Shave at Haberdash EDC

Looks like your trusty dopp kit is due for a restocking. Naturally, this gentlemanly apothecary provides a full array of products for your face (Truefitt & Hill, Baxter, Kent). But since they’re now offering Saturday shaves in an antique barber chair, let the experts handle the hard part.

Saturdays starting Feb 18, $15, Haberdash EDC, 611 N State St (between Ohio and Ontario), 312-646-7870

A Three-Day Economic Stimulus Package
TAX AXE

A Three-Day Economic Stimulus Package

The president has his tax plan. The Republicans have theirs. Now, finally, common ground: both agree you’d look great in some new jeans. To that end, Congress (or someone at the 900 North Michigan Shops) passed the Thou Shall Pay No Tax at the Likes of Space519, J.Crew and Mark Shale Act.

Tuesday
So Begins Another Successful Mardi Gras
YOU SUCK

So Begins Another Successful Mardi Gras

Habitat for Humanity. You’d do anything for them. If that means sucking down as many crawfish as possible in a crawdad-eating contest—so be it. Just as long as they have plenty of hurricanes to wash them down with. Let us check: yep, they do.
