Things to do for October 25, 2012
This Weekend: Morrissey and Jay Cutler, Together at Last
The wick in your weekend-o’-lantern has just been lit.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
