The Weekender

Hot Chocolate, Denim and a Mustache Party

The weekend is the new black.

Friday
Black Friday. For Blue Stuff.
FEELING BLUE

Black Friday. For Blue Stuff.

Today, Independence is taking 20% off all blue items in their Oak Street shop. So your plan of attack is: head straight for the denim. Then for the blue sweaters. Then for the chambrays. It’s what all those years of color coordinating have been leading toward.

DARK CHOCOLATE

Mexican Hot Chocolate Fixes Everything

It’s a very brave thing you’re doing. Black Friday. Downtown. Shopping. Someone, somehow, should acknowledge that. That someone: Mercadito. That somehow: a complimentary Mexican hot chocolate when you order a brunch entrée and show a shopping receipt. In case your credit card doesn’t have hot chocolate points.

Saturday
Giving Go-Go Music a Big Salute
A LONG TIME A-GO-GO

Giving Go-Go Music a Big Salute

Those intrepid record archeologists at Maria’s have dug through their crates of precious vinyl and struck gold. This gold happens to be wearing white vinyl boots and is dancing in a cage. Yes, they’re dedicating a night to all things go-go: the music, the movies, the Nancy Sinatras.

’STACHE IT

A Place to Toast Your Facial Hair

Nov 1: You were Justin Bieber. Nov 7: You were Errol Flynn. Nov 14: You were Burt Reynolds. Nov 30: You’re you again. And you’re celebrating the many looks of Movember with a bourbon ’Stache Smash and beer cans served in paper bags. We like that progression.

Nov 30, 9pm-midnight, Bar Novo, 1 W Wacker Dr, 312-372-7200

POP IN

Re: Your Holiday Champagne Habits...

Drinking champagne. You certainly know how to do it. In fact, we’d go so far as to say you’re, like, an expert at it. Put those uncanny skills to use at Geja’s, as they pop the cork on seven kinds of Laurent-Perrier champagnes. It’s good to have options.

Dec 1, 1pm, $30, Geja’s Cafe, 340 W Armitage Ave, reserve at 773-281-9101
