Lobster Rolls, Free Haircuts and Wings

The weekend has shoveled a path for you.

Thursday
$10 Lobster Rolls at Theory
LOBSTER

$10 Lobster Rolls at Theory

Your Thursday nights feel slightly empty without football, so River North's new sports bar attempts to fill the gap with $10 lobster rolls stuffed with succulent claw, tail and knuckle meat. Feel free to think of them as mini knuckle sandwiches.

Thursdays at Theory, 9 W. Hubbard St (between State and Dearborn), 312-644-0004

Free Haircuts at Urban Joe
BUZZ

Free Haircuts at Urban Joe

The new clip joint's grand opening party tonight provides two hours of free haircuts. But since leaving would mean pulling a hat over your new look, just hang out and have a few complimentary cocktails and canapés.

6-8pm, Jan 15, Urban Joe, 3324 N. Clark St (at Buckingham), 773-529-5637

Friday
Gamma Player Winter Sale
SALE-ING

Gamma Player Winter Sale

You've been thinking a lot about buying another winter coat this week—maybe even to wear on top of the one you already have. Double-layering is easier than ever at this cutting-edge Wicker Park boutique, where everything is 50 percent off.

Through Jan 31, Gamma Player, 2035 W. Division St (between Hoyne and Damen), 773-235-0755

Saturday
Bloody Mary Breakfast at the Bristol
BRUNCH

Bloody Mary Breakfast at the Bristol

The Bristol's first foray into the weekend brunch scene features an organic vodka Bloody Mary accompanied by a massive meat and cheese platter, with a seven-ounce High Life for dessert. Consider it the safest way to get Bloody and High.

Weekends, $19, The Bristol, 2152 N. Damen Ave (between Webster and Shakespeare), 773-862-5555

"Lewd & Rude, but Never Crude" at Risqué Café

The man behind your favorite '70s porn brunch, Twisted Spoke's Smut & Eggs, has a new venue/series. Steve DeRose will screen a different vintage porn film every Monday night, paired with $6 all-you-can-eat wings. Up first: John Holmes' 1985 masterwork Marina Vice. Did someone say hot wings...

Mondays, 10pm, Risqué Café, 3419 N. Clark St (between Roscoe and Newport), 773-525-7711
