Rolex. Apparently, they’re kind of a big deal. Well, we’re getting you some of their handsomest watches ever for less than the going rate. (Thank us later.) Also, you’re getting 25% off wall art made from sound waves and up to 64% off the sharpest knives on earth. (Your turkey deserves it.)
Things to do for November 08, 2012
This Weekend Is Just One Gigantic Pastrami Sandwich
The weekend is the window to the soul.
Art and Beer at the Goat Farm
So there’s this local artist named Felipe. And we’re telling you this because... he’s having an exhibit at the Goat Farm tonight. Oh, and his work, well, it’s of the naked persuasion. Swing by for the show and you’ll find live dance performances, beer from Monday Night Brewing and, yup, lots of skin.
Hey, Here’s a New Supper Club
Eating in weird places. That’s something you haven’t done much of lately. Let’s fix that. A local food blogger just started a new pop-up dinner series. Same tried-and-true underground supper club routine. Undisclosed locations, attractive strangers, BYOB feasts with roast chicken and 100-pound pound cake. Okay, so that last one is new.
By the time Saturday rolls around, you’re going to be hungry (we assume). And if you’re craving fungi (a given)... there’s this. A dinner of huitlacoche (it’s a Mexican truffle that grows on corn), served five ways. One of those ways: sautéed in brown butter over confit pork cheeks. That’s a good way.
Giant Pastrami Sandwiches Live Here
Grant Park. Great spot for going to the zoo. And, this is new, getting pastrami sandwiches inspired by the famous overstuffed versions at Carnegie Deli. See, a Chopped contest winner just opened a deli-market there. He’ll have fresh-baked H & F bread, veggies and, one day, beer. Just not Monday.
Your Champagne and Caviar Tuesday
If you have even the slightest inclination toward bubbly and fish eggs, this is what you’re doing next week. Heading to Three Sheets. They’re now doing a weekly special champagne and caviar menu. Dom. Beluga. All your old friends will be there.
