There’s chocolate. And then there’s chocolate—made by a guy who’s won seven Blue Ribbons (France’s highest award for professional chocolatiers), which is what we’re getting you. Then we’re hooking you up with eye-catching pop-art prints—including the opportunity to create your own Warhol. Plus: your very own wardrobe butler.
Things to do for April 05, 2012
This Weekend: Cubs, Sox and Whipped Cream
Here we go, weekend, here we go.
Get Paid to Dress Like a Winner
During the Masters, you like to slip on a green blazer just to mess with people (your resemblance to Sam Snead: uncanny). If you wear it to the Boundary when the tourney’s on, you’ll get a $25 gift card. Your fashion sense really is a gold mine.
A Dance Party with Whipped Cream
Finally, the late-night Wicker Park dance party you’ve been waiting for: the one with cake. It also has an open champagne bar to kick things off (our advice: get there early), plus gratis cookies, lemon bars and brownies. The rest of the night is dedicated to sweating them off.
Sox Tailgating on a Downtown Rooftop
After the Wrigleyville melee today, you’d enjoy something a little more refined for the Sox opener: complimentary BBQ-pulled-pork sliders, Kobe sliders, Italian beef sandwiches and $5 cocktails on a posh rooftop. The Sox always bring out everyone’s classiest side.
Just Drink Beer and Look for Eggs
Frogs do it. Rabbits do it. And even Indian pale ales do it. They get hoppy. So 10 of the hoppiest IPAs from the Coach House’s new beer menu are just $5. If nothing else, it should make looking for those Easter eggs hidden around the bar more interesting.
That Whole Sunday Brunch Thing...
This Sunday is a holiday synonymous with... brunch. If things go well, brunch may become synonymous with fresh maki and Japanese grilled-pork-belly omelets. Sunday, this River North robata grill debuts its take on the meal that might replace Bloody Marys with sake bombs.
