Things to do for January 10, 2013
Wine, Naked Girls and Jimi Hendrix
You’re now inducted into the Weekend Hall of Fame.
This Venetian pizza place asks you to help determine what is better: classic Bordeaux or its American cousin, Meritage, during a free wine tasting. Your ballot doubles as an entry for one free bottle. This is why voter turnout is so high in Venice.
The Best Paddling of the Weekend
The Chicago Boat Show is in town—convenient, because this is your annual yacht-buying weekend. But you’ll also want to try paddleboarding equipment at the PaddleFest Pavilion and roll around in one of those giant inflatable hamster balls. This is the weekend you buy those, too.
Oscar Wilde as Read by Naked Women
The rapier wit of Oscar Wilde could use a few more soft curves, so the Naked Girls Reading crew is titillating you with a few well-read Wilde excerpts. Naturally, they feature such libertines as Dorian Gray and Salome. Conveniently, veils will be pre-dropped.
You Buy the Bubbles, They Buy Brunch
This new romantic brunch-for-two deal comes down to this: buy one $150 bottle of Ruinart blanc de blancs, and they’ll conveniently throw in a giant prix fixe shareable brunch that includes entrées, sides and pastries. See, there is such a thing as free brunch after all.
The Music Box is screening a high-definition print of Jimi Hendrix: Live at Woodstock. Believe it or not, Hendrix would have been 70 if he were still alive. To put that in context, it works out to, like, three or four of his extended guitar solos.
