The Weekender

Endless Latkes, Beer Mimosas and Nutella Shakes

We’re writing you a prescription for the weekend.

Thursday
Now the Shopping Season Really Begins
FÊTE CHANCE

Now the Shopping Season Really Begins

Before you trek off into the wild yonder of holiday shopping, check out this new little-bit-of-everything pop-up event. It offers cool clothes from Sir & Madame, homebrew equipment, food from Publican Quality Meats and a photo booth that lets you make holiday cards. So wear your best Santa suit.

Dec 6, 6-10pm, $5, Fête at Room 1520, 1520 W Fulton St (enter on Justine St)

Topman Comes to Lincoln Park
TOP OUT

Topman Comes to Lincoln Park

Here’s another shopping option for the shopping-averse: a temporary Topshop/Topman location in Lincoln Park that brings you everything you need for holiday shopping—party-appropriate menswear, a DJ and drinks. Think of it as a jingle-bell rave.

Saturday
Carriage House Goes Brunching
SOUTHERN SPECIFIC

Carriage House Goes Brunching

When you bring shrimp and grits and some Southern hospitality to dinner, of course everyone is going to love it. But let’s see what happens when Carriage House adds fried chicken and waffles, banana french toast and a Miller High Life/bourbon mimosa with brunch. Our guess: more love.

Sat-Sun, 10am-2:30pm, Carriage House, 1700 W Division St, 773-384-9700

Sunday
A Hanukkah Miracle: Endless Latkes
KLEZBIAN CHIC

A Hanukkah Miracle: Endless Latkes

Let the dreidel spin. Let the menorah shine. Let the klezmer band... klez. Most of all, let City Winery provide you with bottomless mimosas, sufganiyot, rugelach, kugel and an endless latke bar during the special Hanukkah editions of its Sunday klezmer brunch. It’s no bother.

Tuesday
Edzo’s Invades Lincoln Park
SO ’ZO

Edzo’s Invades Lincoln Park

That Edzo’s Burger Shop you’ve heard so much about... That you drove to Evanston to try... The one about which you said, “I’m glad it’s in Evanston because I’d get so fat thanks to that Nutella shake”... Well, it’s closer. And the shake has been asking about you.
