Things to do for January 17, 2013
Bacon Sausage, Flaming Shots and the Blackhawks
The weekend had a fake girlfriend once. She lived in Canada.
Japanese in Eight Easy Courses
Japan can be studied many different ways: through literature, cinema or a limited-edition set of Pokémon cards. SushiSamba, however, is using the medium of the omakase sake dinner. It starts with a sake cask being hammered open and ends eight courses later. You’ll be the one hammered then.
You’ll spend tomorrow evening on a 26th-floor terrace, ordering a Flaming Dr Pepper (amaretto and 151 dropped into a pint of Guinness) from a bar made of ice, then getting cozy under a blanket next to a fire pit. Your merit badge in snuggling will come in handy.
Hockey’s Back. Go Crazy with the Tots.
The hockey lockout is over. So it’s probably appropriate to watch the Hawks take on the Kings at a bar that shares its building with the Teamsters union. The fact that there’s $3 beer and half-price appetizers like those insane pulled-pork-smothered Animal Tots is just lucky.
Bacon Sausage and Whiskey. That Is All.
This three-course dinner pairs three Koval whiskeys with Big Fork’s bacon sausage and just happens to take place at a spot that doubles as an art gallery. So from now on, turning bacon into a tasty sausage should be considered a work of art.
There’s Fried Chicken Everywhere
You don’t eat anywhere that serves food by the bucket. It’s a pretty good rule. Still, some fried chicken does sound good. So try this new fried-chicken feast, which includes two sides, like mashed potatoes and collard greens. We know you’re choosy about your collard greens, too.
