Your Super Bowl party is about to enter the realm of legend, thanks to: 1) 25% off gold-accented bar carts fit for a czar—and your top-shelf liquor. 2) Hand-cured prosciutto delivery (note: goes great with beer). 3) A heap of bacon-filled brownies and cookies. Think of them as party favors.
Things to do for January 24, 2013
Your Weekend Is All Fondue, Whiskey and Sailboats
The weekend is making hot chocolate. Bring the marshmallows.
You’ll Like the Cut of Their Jibs
With the first measurable snowfall in almost a year predicted for this weekend, we know you’re thinking about one thing: your next sailboat. And hence, this sailboat expo has boats, gear and a chance to compete in remote-control-sailboat races. No word on little captain’s hats.
Your Alpine Retreat in the Gold Coast
It’s cold. It’s snowy. That’s great if you’re in a French Alps ski lodge. Also great if you’re in a swanky Gold Coast bar throwing a sort-of bash with fondue, DJs, raffles and warm spiced French wine. Once again, no one après-skis like the French après-ski.
It’s Whiskey Week. Go Nuts.
This time of year, the days are short, but the week is long. One exception: Whiskey Week seems to fly by before you even knew it existed. (It does.) So saunter into cavernous speakeasy Untitled for two hours of whiskey celebration. By which we mean: gratis whiskey sampling.
The fabled last seating. Things happen. Good things. Chefs let loose. Wine pours get generous. DJs get funky. Expect all of the above at this monthly-supper-club launch. It starts with cocktails, proceeds to a four-course dinner, then magically winds up at Cuvee. But breakfast is up to you.
Just an All-Out Rager in Logan Square
Of course, a party doesn’t need to begin with anything as elaborate as a full-scale dinner. An hour of complimentary Revolution beer can do the trick. But here’s the important part. It must be followed by you helping to finish a giant paint-by-numbers mural. Then free-form dancing—your preferred medium.
