Things to do for October 24, 2013
Lobster Rolls, Aliens and Banana Margaritas
The weekend ain’t afraid of no ghosts.
Lots of Tacos. And Banana Margaritas.
Hey, this is pretty nice: a new taco bar opened in Andersonville. It’s got, you know, tacos. Fried-chicken tacos. Sloppy joe tacos. Bacon-swiss-and-cheddar tacos. And naturally, you’ll want a chocolate-covered-banana-flavored margarita, so they’ve got those, too.
Da Lobsta Goes BYO
Say you’re walking through the Gold Coast with a bottle of chilled champagne. The problem, of course, is twofold. 1) You need lobster to go with it. 2) So few places let you bring in your own bubbly. Da Lobsta solves both issues with its new BYO-encouragement policy. Lucky you.
Ah, yes. Schaumburg in October. There’s just something about it that reminds us of swooshing down Alpine mountains, après-ski hot tubbing and hot toddies. Our guess: it’s this giant ski/snowboard expo, which can get you handsomely outfitted for all of the above.
A soiree with almost every chef in town is being held Saturday night. This is very good news if you’re hungry. There will also be 13 mixologists shaking your libations. Which is good news if you’re thirsty. And it’s all for Meals on Wheels. Which is good news, period.
Before this screening of the 1953 film The War of the Worlds, the Music Box will play excerpts from that infamous 75-year-old radio broadcast in which Orson Welles scared the pants off of half of America. And the law was so much stricter about wearing pants back then.
