The Weekender

Sledding, a Boat Show and Corned-Beef Sandwiches

If Clark doesn’t have to wear pants, neither does the weekend.

You’ll Hope This Place Won’t Last Long
JUST CHILL

You’ll Hope This Place Won’t Last Long

Tonight, Vertigo launches its seasonal ice bar on its 26th-floor terrace. You’ll find a 14-foot bar carved from ice, thermoses of spiked hot chocolate, s’mores stations and blankets if you get chilly. This year’s theme is après-ski. So wear your sexiest ski goggles.

RYE OH RYE

Sate Your Pastrami Cravings Here...

NYC has it. Chicago Heights has it. And now, Hyde Park has it: great f**king pastrami, thanks to their new offshoot of Bergstein’s. It’s launching with a sandwich menu that includes its pastrami-and-corned-beef monster called the Bensonhurst. No, it’s not a scary monster.

Sharp Shirts When You Want Them

Times change. People change. Fashions change. Websites that sell fashions change. Hence: Stock Mfg. Co. is now less about crowdsourcing and preselling cool shirt designs from American companies like Whiskey Grade. And more about just selling them to you when you want them. Works for us.

Of Course You Should Buy a Boat
YACHT-READY

Of Course You Should Buy a Boat

The big boat show is in town. It’s a great opportunity for you to do things like dive in a scuba pool, try stand-up paddleboarding indoors, test-drive a boat simulator and try on pirate clothes while on a faux galleon. If you have time left, maybe buy a yacht or two.

This Will Be More Fun Than Sochi
ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE

This Will Be More Fun Than Sochi

The Winter Olympics are almost here. You need to get excited. You need to get pumped. You need to... get on a bus loaded with hot chocolate and head to Villa Olivia for a little downhill snow-tubing action. That’s soon to be an Olympic event.
