Thursday
So Long, Sushi Wabi. Hello, Sushi Dokku.
HOT SUSHI

So Long, Sushi Wabi. Hello, Sushi Dokku.

The team that brought you (the sorely missed) Sushi Wabi has returned with a simpler, calmer, more mature venture. It’s definitely a date-night winner. Clean lines. Comfy chairs. Luscious nigiri. Lots of crazy cold sake selections. In case date night turns into crazy sake night.

Now open, Sushi Dokku, 823 W Randolph St, 312-455-8238

A Bar Crawl That’s Really a Poker Game
WHITE OUT

A Bar Crawl That’s Really a Poker Game

During tonight’s Loop Blizzard Bar Crawl, you’ll hit three spots: Franklin Tap, O’Neill’s on Wells and Cactus Bar. Also, you’ll be supplied with drink tickets. Redeem them for cocktails and playing cards at each stop. The best hand wins a gift certificate. Wear your luckiest parka.

Jan 31, 5:30pm, $45 at door, starts at Franklin Tap, 325 S Franklin St, 312-212-3262

Your Super Bowl Party Needs Sausage

Your Super Bowl Party Needs Sausage

You could watch the Super Bowl without beer. You won’t. You could drink your beer without some sausage. You won’t. This new Alpine spot’s Super Bowl pack contains 10 fat pork sausages, 10 pretzel buns, sauerkraut, pickles and grainy mustard, all calling your name. Well, actually, yodeling your name.

Saturday
Rockin’ Out with Pete Wentz
HARD ROCK LIFE

Rockin’ Out with Pete Wentz

Two years ago, the world was a very different place. Well, okay, maybe not the world as much as Angels & Kings. Congratulate Pete Wentz and company at their second anniversary inside the Hard Rock Hotel at this throwdown fueled by vodka, bourbon and gin. All appropriate anniversary gifts, by the way.

Sunday
Everyone Loves Free Pizza
SCORE

Everyone Loves Free Pizza

Sure, the Super Bowl has its detractors. Everything does. Well, except for one thing. Free pizza. No one ever complains about that. So there’ll be plenty during the game at this cozy little East Coast pie joint in Lakeview. And you had given up faith in humanity.

Feb 3, during the Super Bowl, Pizzeria Serio, 1708 W Belmont Ave, 773-525-0600
