Things to do for May 17, 2012
This Weekend: Rhubarb Mimosas, $1 Whiskey and a Sadie Hawkins Dance
The weekend has full diplomatic immunity.
Your First Drink at Frog n Snail
A new restaurant running on all cylinders is a fine thing. But until those first mezcal-and-chili-liqueur cocktails start flowing, it’s just a work in progress. So good news: the bar at Top Chef finalist Dale Levitski’s new bistro is now open. The cycle of birth is complete.
You like a girl who knows what she wants. So if she wants to bring you to CheekyChicago’s Sadie Hawkins dance to indulge in complimentary beer shandies, spiked punch, vodka popsicles, appetizers and prizes for the best-dressed couple—you won’t object. But let her take the credit when you win.
Clothes for Summer. Drinks for Now.
After a few drinks, you can see the future. Specifically, what you’ll be wearing this summer. That’s the beauty of starting with an hour of free cocktailing before watching a Sebastien Grey fashion show of summer-appropriate fabrics and seasonal formal wear. You’ll be black-tie-cookout-ready in no time.
A Full Year of Meat, Beer and Whiskey
To celebrate a solid year of serving hot meat, cold beer and strong whiskey, Porkchop is sticking with what it knows: gratis fried pickles and sausage lollipops in the afternoon, $1 whiskeys and beer the rest of the day—helping you stick with what you know.
Like a Garden of Brunchly Delights
You’ve long suspected that chicken-fried frog legs are really best suited to brunch. This new Bucktown gastropub with a massive patio now lets you test that theory—not to mention your game-changing hypothesis about pairing a duck confit omelet with a carafe of rhubarb mimosas.
