This week’s Perks include: 20% off some handsome leather wallets, bags and iPad cases—hand-stitched by a Japanese leather god (the non-kinky kind). Also: beautiful bamboo charging docks for your iThings and design-award-winning wireless speakers—all for less than the going rate. Have at it...
Things to do for February 21, 2013
Two New Bars, a Sexified Art Party and a Harpoon Auction
The weekend’s other car is a Wednesday.
Grant Park’s New Tequila and Taco Hub
There’s this Mexican spot in Oakhurst called Mezcalito’s that’s been doing some real fine work—hand-rolling tamales. Kebob-ing chickens. Slinging tequila. And now, they’ve brought all that fine work to a new Grant Park location. It’s a BYO situation for now, so make sure to take full advantage of that. Full.
STG Has a Pizza Sandwich for You
Sometimes you need a sandwich. Other times you need a pizza sandwich. Good news regarding the latter: STG is permanently open for lunch now. And yes, they have pizza-style sandwiches—think pork meatballs, tomato sugo and parmesan on pizza dough bread. Which reminds you... pizza sandwiches.
A New DJ-Heavy Nightclub in the EAV
Tomorrow night, a new danceteria opens in the former Eastside Lounge spot. It’s still got that whole DJs-spinning-electronic-dance-music thing happening, but everything else is new. The sound and lighting systems. The cocktail list full of Singapore Slings and Corpse Revivers. Oh, and the dance floor. It’s for dancing.
A Party. With Harpoons. And Bagpipes.
A local theater company is about to take on Moby-Dick. And to raise funds, they’re throwing a Captain Ahab–inspired party at the Goat Farm. What this means for you: live bagpipers, bare-knuckle boxing matches, chest-hair competitions and a harpoon auction. We know... another harpoon auction.
Love Is Art Turns Two. You Party.
For two years now, you’ve had the resources to make naked art with another person. And you’ve been meaning to thank Love Is Art for that. So do it at their anniversary party at ABV Gallery. They’ll have gratis vodka, food from Cruzado and live music. Happy Someone Else’s Anniversary.
