Thumb your nose at the recession by striding confidently into this posh American bistro and pointing your downturn-immune finger at the menu, where you'll now find a four-course feast for less than some of the entrees.
Things to do for January 23, 2009
Gastro Parties, Loft Sales and Cheap Swillin'
The weekend is honored to be nominated.
Jake Online Sale
What started as a quiet online sale for the Nice Collective line has morphed into a full-throttle discount riot. Now through Sunday you'll get 25 percent off everything online with a promo code.
If crowds are more your thing, this two-day sales event in a Wicker Park loft promises its usual melee, with markdowns between 40 to 90 percent on Hyden Yoo, Howe, Theory, et al. Meaning it might just be worth throwing an elbow for.
Inauguration Sale at Todd's Wine
As a final, quirky salute to Obama's inauguration, all wines that have any part of the word "change" in their name are 20 percent off. Which means you'll save on Rothschild, Riesling, chardonnay and most of all, champagne. Yes, you...never mind.
Alchemy Monday at Spring
Bucktown's bar scene just got more delicious. Spring is now open Mondays...kind of. It's launching a beat-heavy lounge party with Shawn McClain and Co. handling small plates (Crispy Pork Belly Buns), sushi and oysters, leaving you to deal with the Bangkok Manhattans.
