Things to do for February 20, 2014

The Weekender

Oysters, an Arcade Bar and Lunch with Ferran Adrià

All hands on the weekend.

Thursday
The Year’s Most Expensive Lunch Tab
BULLI FOR YOU

The Year’s Most Expensive Lunch Tab

Okay, you’re not really spending $695 on lunch. It’s a $70 lunch that happens to include a $625, 2,700-page book from superchef Ferran Adrià: elBulli, 2005-2011. He’ll be there, too—talking, signing books, sipping wine, eating Catalonian tapas beside you. It’s the least he could do.

The Blues. Now Available with Oysters.
RHYTHM & BLUE POINTS

The Blues. Now Available with Oysters.

The blues is something you just feel way down deep in your soul. Way down deep. Frankly, it’s not entirely dissimilar to the way you feel about fresh oysters. Fortuitously, these things are now joining forces at a new live blues night in a Noble Square oyster joint. Your soul thanks you.

Thursdays starting Feb 20, 7-10pm, Bow & Stern, 1371 W Chicago Ave, 312-988-0644

Friday
Vintage Pinball, Meet Draft Beer
LOGAN’S FUN

Vintage Pinball, Meet Draft Beer

This new arcade bar, a former record store/video game museum, has three rooms replete with 40 rare video games, 30 vintage pinball machines, 20 beers on tap and quirky booze like a South African wine that’s served in a beer bottle. Plus just an infinite amount of beeping.

Sunday
A Day Dedicated to the Art of Poutine
DISCO FRIES

A Day Dedicated to the Art of Poutine

Poutine: it’s not just for drunken Quebecois anymore. In fact, at this event, you’ll find places like the Gage and Le Bouchon putting their best culinary spins on the classic dish of gravy-soaked fries and cheese curds. Basically, it’s the Olympic sport they forgot to include.

Monday
Beer. Golf. Marshmallows. It’s Happening.
FORE DINNER

Beer. Golf. Marshmallows. It’s Happening.

A powerful drive. A true putt. A taste for cold beer and/or pisco sour marshmallows. You’ll need all of these when Fairways lays out a six-course beer dinner with a few independent breweries. Golf simulators will be at your disposal to work off that beer and/or marshmallows.

Feb 24, 6-9pm, $75, Fairways, 1141 W Armitage Ave, 773-698-6020, tickets here (use code “fairways” for $10 off)
