BYOB, Burlesque and Billy Dec

The weekend has all your favorite haunts.

Thursday
Bloomingdale's Men's Private Designer Sale
SALE-ING

Bloomingdale's Men's Private Designer Sale

At this underpublicized sale, you'll get deals on everything from Y-3 by Adidas to Burberry winter coats. Perfect for your everyday Unbelievably Well-Dressed Man disguise—though people will instantly recognize you.

Sale now through Nov 3, Bloomingdale's, 900 N. Michigan Ave (between Delaware and Walton), 312-440-4460

Barry R. Bone's Burlesque Brothel
TRICKS

Barry R. Bone's Burlesque Brothel

Because you probably can't wait until tomorrow to get devilish, the Darkroom hosts a vaudevillian-style burlesque troupe. For tricks, you'll find a display of vintage erotica and risqué performances. For treats, a goody bag stuffed with Coco Rouge chocolate.

$10-13, Oct 30, doors 9pm, show 10pm, Darkroom, 2210 W. Chicago Ave (near Leavitt), 773-276-1411, tickets here

Friday
Daddy Hookup at the Underground
TREATS

Daddy Hookup at the Underground

If you haven't made Halloween plans, it might be a bumpy night, so we've arranged for a table at the Underground's Mile High Club, hosted by nightlife's own Billy Dec. Email a jpeg of you in your Halloween best by midnight tonight, and if your costume is as good as we assume, the limo will be there at 8:30pm.

Oct 31, 9pm, table for four, The Underground, 56 W. Illinois St (near Dearborn), 312-644-7600, email here, winner will be emailed

Saturday
Antica in Andersonville
PIZZA

Antica in Andersonville

At this week-and-a-half-old charmer, it takes two Italian-born chefs to man the massive wood-fired oven. The pizzaiolo (formerly of Macello) turns out eight classics, while the kitchen chef (a Spiaggia vet) handles pastas. You'll handle wine—it's BYO for now.

Antica, now open, 5663 N. Clark St (at Hollywood), 773-944-1492

Sunday
Jerry's Introduces Brunch Service
BRUNCH

Jerry's Introduces Brunch Service

Egg sandwiches at Jerry's seem like a natural for a low-key Sunday brunch, though with about sixteen varieties—including a steak with chipotle chutney—you may have trouble facing an Egg McMuffin on Monday. And if you're not really a yoke man, try the Fried Chicken and French Toast.

9am-1pm, Saturdays and Sundays, Jerry's, 1938 W. Division St (between Damen and Wolcott), 773-235-1006
