The bi-level Lincoln Park spot sets its Way Back Machine to year 1998, focusing on wine selections from the past ten years, as well as music. Wax nostalgic about buying pre-iPod Apple shares, but don't mention your Third Eye Blind obsession.
Things to do for September 25, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend is all the bailout you need.
Carnivale Third Anniversary
You've always felt there was an art to the perfect mojito, and the folks at Carnivale concur. As part of their third-anniversary celebration, they'll have an expert on hand to help your muddling skills. As if you needed any pointers.
Pickles on a stick are fine, but Taste of Chicago doesn't quite show the depth of the town's culinary talent. This three-day food and wine showcase corrects that. Kick things off at the opening night fete feast.
What started as a chefs-only, after-hours cookoff in the back of Moonshine has spilled out into the streets, or at least the patio. Sample bones from more than a dozen spots (from Socca to the Fifty/50) and wash it down with Moonshine's house brew.
Tateossian London Trunk Show and Sale
Those guns of yours look great, but now your wrists look like they need a little fortifying. Visit the Tateossian London Trunk Show for their latest in cuff links, watches and jewelry, and grab a 10-percent discount while you're there.
Gordon Rush Trunk Show
Men's shoe and outerwear designer Gordon Rush trumpets his new fall collection with an all-day Saks event. In addition to footwear, the show will offer a limited supply of belts and accessories. So then you'll be all set, except for shirts and pants.
If only McCain and Obama would settle their differences the old-fashioned way: via a good joust. You'll just have to do it for them at this wacky scavenger hunt and obstacle course, featuring among other challenges a classic bike battle.
