Here’s how you’ll win Valentine’s Day this year: 1) Get a box of spiked chocolates for 25% off. 2) (Barely) dress her in some French-lace lingerie from Fleur du Mal. 3) Send a bouquet of fresh roses (grown on a South American volcano)—for $32. Then... commence the ravishing.
Things to do for January 31, 2013
Super Sausage, Poker Crawls and New Sushi
Any pictures, descriptions, rebroadcasts or other accounts without prior written consent of the weekend are prohibited.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
