Things to do for November 14, 2013
This Weekend, You’ll Eat Pizza in an Airstream
This train will run express to the weekend.
Pretty soon, you’ll be out there shopping for everyone but yourself. Tonight, however, you’ll head to your nearest Haberdash for this pair of events. Crack open an ice-cold Schlitz. Peruse some sturdy Filson bags and made-in-Detroit Shinola watches. Then cross yourself off your holiday list.
Eating Pizza in an Airstream Trailer
Homeslice, that log cabin of a DePaul pizza joint, has installed a heated 1969 Airstream trailer on its patio for your pizza-eating, Moscow Mule–drinking pleasure. And they’ve added enough lounge furniture to hold 20 of your friends. So that trailer park holiday party you’ve wanted to do... it’s going to happen.
You vs. a Three-Tiered Cheesecake
Only a year ago, Pastoral, your favorite cheesemonger, took over the space next to it and called it Bar Pastoral. Which became your favorite bar for wine, cheese, romance and parfaits of duck rillettes. Time flies. Anyway, they’re celebrating with a cheese-and-wine tasting and, naturally, a huge three-tier birthday cheesecake. Just one candle, though.
You, the New Orleans Saints, Gumbo
Let’s talk football. Saints. 49ers. Sunday. Okay, that’s enough football. Now the real Sunday melee: a gumbo throwdown. You’ll be a judge when six well-known chefs (from Frontier, Trencherman, Hugo’s, Tanto, etc.) battle six amateur chefs for a gumbo crown. Note: a gumbo crown is not a literal thing.
A New All-Day-Long Bar in Old Town
This new Old Town gastropub looks like a single-family house from the outside, which kind of explains all the homey comforts inside. Stop in for pork belly eggs benedict for brunch, short ribs on cold evenings or maybe just a shot of whiskey—they have 40 kinds, way more than Mom.
