The after-work nosh at the elegant Hotel Sax lounge may be half-off, but what's truffle popcorn without a little bubbly to go with it? (Or a trio of pulled pork sliders for that matter?) Thankfully, beer, wine and champagne are now just three bucks.
Things to do for March 05, 2009
Bathroom Karaoke, Spring Fashion and New Sushi
The weekend is out riding fences.
You're looking for any sign of spring right about now, so here's one for you: all men's clothing is 25 percent off this weekend, including new short-sleeve shirts from Band of Outsiders and sandals from Nice Collective. You can hear the birds chirping already.
The Gold Coast pastry mavens are handing out gratis mini cupcakes after work on Friday, with alcohol-teasing flavors like the Cuba Libre. You'll also be the first to inspect their latest masterstroke, the Foie Gras Cupcake, a sour-cherry-filled chiffon cake iced with rich foie gras mousse.
The Party at Griffin Lounge
The launch of this ever-changing weekly theme party begins with a circus motif—cotton candy, balloons, a pony photo booth, karaoke in the bathroom line… Think of it as the party you wanted when you were 8 years old, only with better vodka.
This posh Financial District spot, which took a dinner timeout in December, reopens with a streamlined menu of Asian classics like pho, sushi, ramen…plus the Asian answer to fajitas, Sizzle Plates.
This all-day/all-night DJ marathon brings together the best names in Chicago clubs (Matt Roan, Flosstradamus) for one big scratch-a-palooza. You'll also be treated to a "White Trash Brunch" of two-for-one pizza slices and $2 PBR—because they're keeping it classy.
