Gifts with Dad’s name all over them: a trove of the planet’s rarest and most handsome vintage Rolexes. Also: up to 40% off golf balls equipped with technology that dramatically reduces hooks and slices. And irresistible scotch-filled chocolates from the legendary Richart chocolatiers. Help yourself to some, too.
Things to do for June 08, 2012
Bacon Jalapeños, Museum Wine and Boat Shopping
All in all, you’re just another brick in the weekend.
A Patio for Your Taco Lifestyle
You’ve probably heard a lot about Antique Taco. If not, don’t be fooled by the name—it’s totally new. Even newer: patio seating for you to enjoy this weather, crispy fish tacos, Meatball & Mole and upside-down mint-and-cilantro ice cream cones—which also sound suspiciously newfangled.
You’re at Navy Pier. You Need a Drink.
So you’re taking guests to Navy Pier. We see something in your eyes saying “save me.” Also, something saying “bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeños” and “lobster rolls” and “cocktails.” This new pop-up has them all. Plus, rotating guest chefs. In case your eyes mention Heather Terhune.
Shopping for Boats. While on a Boat.
You’re at a boat show. You see something you like, but... well, you want to take it for a test-sail first. This boat show, featuring everything from dinghies to weekenders to paddleboards, solves that. Figure out how to get a catamaran up your apartment stairs later.
Drinking with the Dinosaurs
Sue the Dinosaur. Age: 67 million years. Height: 4 meters. Weight: 7 tons. Favorite wine: chardonnay. Go ahead and share that little tidbit as you sample 500 wines and nearly 50 restaurants (Tavernita, Nellcôte, Sunda) tonight at the Field Museum. We know paleontology is your true passion.
One day you’ll open a steakhouse on Belmont Avenue. It will be called Belmont Steaks. For now, however, there’s this: a sturdy neighborhood pub offering Belmont Stakes and Euro-cup viewing and a giant crawfish boil. But somehow “Crawdads on Lincoln” just doesn’t have the same ring.
