Things to do for October 25, 2012

The Weekender

This Weekend: Morrissey and Jay Cutler, Together at Last

The wick in your weekend-o’-lantern has just been lit.

Thursday
Tonight: $10 Lobster at Socca
LOBSTERFEST

Tonight: $10 Lobster at Socca

You’d pay just about anything for a really good lobster. And sure enough, that includes $10. Socca brings back its crazy-popular night of inexpensive whole butter-poached crustaceans, which justifies, of course, you ordering the really good champagne tonight. Not that you ever needed justification before.

Oct 25, Socca, 3301 N Clark St, reserve at 773-248-1155

Saturday
Dim Sum, Now with More Footsie
DARK INTENTIONS

Dim Sum, Now with More Footsie

It’s so, so dark. You struggle to make out what’s in front of you. You inch the candle closer... it’s... it’s... crab pot stickers. Oh, it’s just Sunda’s annual candlelit festival of Asian small plates and romance. Which also explains that hand on your knee under the table... we hope.

A Halloween-Laden Rooftop Soiree
USUAL HAUNTS

A Halloween-Laden Rooftop Soiree

You’re worried. It’s Halloween weekend and things can get weird out there. The antidote: rooftop cocktailing with an open bar, hors d’oeuvres and rum cocktails made with black-licorice ice cubes. Plus: a costume contest ensures you’re surrounded by as many Katnisses and Catwomen as possible.

The Scariest Hilton Not Named Paris
HOTEL HELL

The Scariest Hilton Not Named Paris

Of course, hitting the dance floor with 2,000 sexy kittens, sexy nurses and sexy Angry Birds (you just know they’re out there) has a certain timeless appeal. This party has four DJs, decor by an Emmy Award–winning set designer and a $5,000 costume contest. Your sexy Psy will kill.

Sunday
Chicago Football, English Heart
FOOTBAWLERS

Chicago Football, English Heart

Here’s something you never saw coming: a beer-and-sausage-laden Bears viewing party paired with music from the Smiths. No, Morrissey (who postponed his Saturday show) wouldn’t approve. And yes, it’s strange to watch football with so much moaning. But hey, that’s Jay Cutler for you.
