You’re also getting 60% off dapper dress shirts from the legendary Drake’s London, and 30% off footwear from the British gods of shoemaking, Grenson. See: huge things.
Things to do for January 03, 2013
Sketch Comedy, Banjos and All-You-Can-Eat Fried Chicken
The weekend doesn’t care about your resolutions.
A New Year Calls for New Shirts
Well, it was fun while it lasted. Now, however, that little Oak Street version of menswear shop Apartment Number 9 draws to a close. Everything, as they say, must go. To that end: a major sale on all items, from pants and shirts to vintage furniture. Your current vintage furniture: so 2012.
If your resolution for 2013 was to laugh more, you should be in pretty good shape. This 11-day sketch-comedy-a-thon ties down its stakes in Lakeview with 130 comedy troupes from across the country. Now, if you’ve resolved to laugh less, consider this a real torture test.
Now Open: Table, Donkey and Stick
The former Bonsoiree has been reincarnated into a cabin in the Alps. That means your cold winter nights now feature more veal sauerbraten and Austrian wine. After midnight, you’ll also find it to be a sanctuary of warm pretzels and beer. Stay until the first thaw.
There was the Rumble in the Jungle. The Thrilla in Manila. And now: the Melee in the Gallery, where you’ll be treated to local artists dueling in various art performances (yes, banjos will be involved). Vodka and a DJ will also be on hand. This is what you’ve been training for.
A Swanky Endless-Fried-Chicken Feast
Allium, the acclaimed restaurant in the Four Seasons, is hosting a three-course dinner with all-you-can-eat entrées each weeknight this month. Tuesdays happen to be fried-chicken night—just in case you’re on that trendy all-the-fried-chicken-and-biscuits-you-can-eat diet.
