Things to do for December 18, 2008

The Weekender

Suit Sales, Gratis Beef and Good Grinches

The weekend is making a list, but just doing a quick once-over.

Thursday
2 New Perks
PERKS

2 New Perks

For this week's batch of perky goodness, we've got 25 percent off on all Bliss spa products online and 30 percent off all polos (like Fred Perry and J. Lindeberg) from Fresh Polos. We've also got an extra 10 percent off a bulletproof polo. But you can't put a price on safety...

The Grinch Who Gave Back Christmas
WHOVILLE

The Grinch Who Gave Back Christmas

This Make-A-Wish benefit kicks off with a Grinch-themed VIP party where Nick Cannon promises to divulge intimate details about his honeymoon (or at least it's possible). Get there early—you wouldn't want to miss out on the gratis vodka.

$20 donation, VIP reception 9-10pm, Dec 18, The Underground, 56 W. Illinois St (between Clark and Dearborn), 312-644-7600, RVSP here

Up to 70 Percent Off at Jake
SALE-ING

Up to 70 Percent Off at Jake

With items like a $2,300 Band of Outsiders window pane suit marked down to $690, it's worth trudging through the snow to check out this sale. Of course, you could simply click here, though you'd lose the great trudging-through-the-snow-to-buy-a-suit story.

Now until stock runs out, Jake, 939 N. Rush St (between Oak and Walton), 312-664-5553

Friday
Daddy Hookup at One SixtyBlue
FIZZ

Daddy Hookup at One SixtyBlue

New chef Michael McDonald may have won over the dining room crowd, now let's see what he can do in the lounge. A tasty Hibiscus Fizz and his deep-fried sauerkraut croquettes are on the house this weekend when you tell 'em we sent you.

THE DADDY HOOKUP: Free Fizz and sauerkraut in the lounge, Dec 19-20, One SixtyBlue, 1400 W. Randolph St (at Loomis), 312-850-0303

Saturday
Hanukah Wine Tasting
KOSHER

Hanukah Wine Tasting

The Festival of Lights begins Sunday and you don't have a thing to drink. Remedy that at this new Loop vino purveyor, where you'll sip selections from various Israeli and kosher wine growers. Because it's probably time to go beyond Manischewitz.

Sunday
Morton's 30th Anniversary
BITES

Morton's 30th Anniversary

We always forget if it's silver, paper or gold for the 30th anniversary, but we're thinking beef works. Stop in to wish Morton's well as it celebrates three decades in Chicago by giving you an hour to devour free mini cheeseburgers in the bar.

5-6pm, Dec 21, Morton's, 1050 N. State St (at Rush), 312-266-4820
