Things to do for December 19, 2013
Swinging Snowflake Girls. It’s Not a Weekend Without Them.
Rockin’ around the weekend tree, have a happy holiday.
A Food Truck with an Eating Competition
Been a while since you’ve seen a new food truck. Yeah. Been a good long while. Well, here’s a new all-halal one. And it’ll occasionally come with an eating competition: finish the 96er (a burger-Philly-gyro combo served with cheese fries) in 10 minutes and get a T-shirt. A T-shirt, people.
A Sale. A Party. A Sale-Party.
We suspect you intentionally moved down-jackets and metallic bow ties to your last-minute gift list so you could attend Bill Hallman’s party tonight. Of course there’ll be cocktails, passed edible things and a DJ. But there’ll also be 30% off the whole store. And 100% off the cocktails.
You, Demolition and Some Beer
Lenny’s, that abandoned old dive bar on Memorial, is about to be torn down tomorrow night. Leveled. Annihilated. And Augustine’s is inviting you to come drink beer and watch it all happen. Which... is different. Good different. You’re in.
Swinging Snowflake Girls. Enjoy Them.
Paris on Ponce loves Christmas. Which is probably why they’re about to throw a party with passed hot toddies, a screening of what they’re calling “the weirdest Christmas movie ever” and at least one swinging snowflake burlesque girl. Those are probably the best.
Fire Pits and Beer in Grant Park
Grant Park is going all out for their last market this year. There’ll be fire pits, an Americana band, beer from H&F Bread, wine from the Spotted Trotter and spiked hot chocolate from Riverview Farms. So, things that are way better than vegetables.
