Things to do for March 28, 2013
New Suits, Good Bubbly and Adult Easter Egg Hunts
The weekend would never hide anything from you.
This will sound a little weird at first, but here it is: there’s a contest to see which bartender can create a cocktail that tastes like Bucktown. No, seriously. Antique Taco, Club Lucky, Fatpour, Prasino and others are all involved. Think of it as a lazy man’s bar crawl.
You Now Have a Spring Wardrobe Stylist
Hey, it’s spring. Wardrobe refresh time. And now that Bonobos has moved into a cooler spot, they have room for a personal stylist for you. Make an appointment, try on something light and breezy, leave your address and be on your way. The clothes will track you down.
A Great Wine Deserves a Great Suit
If you’re in the mood for a new suit... and some bubbly to go with it, this pop-up wine tasting is taking over Suitsupply’s Gold Coast terrace tomorrow. It’ll give you easy access to chardonnays, sparkling wines, canapés and all the blazers a gentleman needs to enjoy them.
So a stand-up comic and a striptease artist walk into a room... oh, wait. You’re there, too. Let’s start over: you’re spending an evening at the Wiggle Room, where you’ll experience a blend of a fully clothed stand-up male comic and some not-so-fully clothed female burlesque performers. You won’t confuse the two.
This Easter Sunday event is strictly BYOB. But the last B is for basket. (They always have plenty of booze on hand.) You’ll start at Longman & Eagle’s new Off Site Bar, then scour Logan Square in an attempt to find the most eggs for prizes, glory and, of course, whiskey.
