We've set you up with an exclusive deal from the Brit-inflected sartorial provocateurs at Psycho Bunny: UD members get an exclusive 30 percent off all knits and ties, just in time for any stockings that need stuffing...or tragically unadorned collars.
Things to do for December 11, 2008
Meatloaf, Kournikova, Etc.
The weekend is %$#% packed.
BLT Cupcakes were just a gateway drug. Now you crave cupcakes without so much...cake. Introducing Meatloaf Cupcakes, the stars of this new meatloaf specialty shop, which also sells meatloaf-shaped pies, birthday-suitable meatloaf cakes and flights of single-bite "Loafies."
The exalted popcorn king has made a buttery return to its Michigan Avenue popping grounds with a temporary Holiday Express shop. Nothing says Christmas like a commemorative Wrigley Field two-gallon tin of Gingerbread Caramel Crisp.
Architectural Artifacts Sale
Everything at the quirk-filled Ravenswood salvage trove is reduced at least 50 percent. That's good news for you; your apartment has been lacking the touch that only a Soviet-era Czechoslovakian pommel horse can provide.
$10 Steaks at John's Place
You'll fight your way through this recession with a fork in one hand and a martini in the other. This Lincoln Park staple's Friday special of $10 steaks (choice NY strip, 12 ounces, wet-aged) and half-priced Svedka cocktails gives you the proper equipment.
Merry Mustachmas IV at Schoolyard Tavern
The premise of this weekend pre-holiday party couldn't be simpler: Come in with a mustache, get a free beer. And while wearing a fake 'stache will score you the same thing, we know you aren't going out like that.
Anna's Toy Drive at Enclave
Model/ex-hot tennis player Anna Kournikova hosts a party at Enclave Saturday to benefit the Boys and Girls Club. We gotta be honest, we're struggling to look at your attendance at this as an act of charity.
10th Annual Winter Beer Tasting
Ignite the holiday spirit by sampling some eighty kinds of Christmas brews—the largest assortment in North America, in fact—including rare vintages like the '04 Goose Island Christmas that owner Mike Miller plans to haul up from the cellar, making you wish you had his cellar.
