Things to do for March 15, 2012
Ping-Pong, Corned Kobe Beef and Fast Women
The weekend is working on its St. Pat’s Day tan.
Your Office Pool Shuttle Awaits...
Market has a great idea. Well, two, really. First, they’ve opened that nice beer garden. Second, if you have a big group—say, your entire office pool—they will chauffeur everyone over. Incidentally, they also have ping-pong tables. But the idea for an office tourney is all yours.
O, Say, You Can See the Blackhawks
Watching the ’Hawks at a bar requires a few basic necessities: wall-sized TVs, $16 beer buckets, a raffle for a Tag Heuer watch, an announcer calling the game and, oh yeah, the guy who sings the national anthem at the United Center kicking things off. Remember to remove your hat.
Corned Kobe Beef. Yeah.
We don’t know what your personal beliefs dictate, but... corned Kobe beef. On a Friday. During Lent. We’re not tempting you. We’re simply saying this barbecue joint will have it. Of course, it’ll be around on Saturday, too—but you may be busy committing other sins by then.
It’s Not St. Pat’s Without Corn Dogs
The International Federation for Corn Dog Awareness has decreed March 17 National Corn Dog Day. Apparently, nothing else was going on that day. This Evanston purveyor will offer the batter-dipped savories for $1.50 as a solemn tribute. No, they won’t be green.
This competition pits the town’s top female mixologists against each other to see who can shake cocktails the fastest. You, on the other hand, will be pitted against 11 kinds of punch to see... well, just to see what happens when you go up against a Beefeater Royal Punch.
