Things to do for February 27, 2014
Moonshine Donuts, Fat Tuesday and New Burgers
There’s something very important the weekend forgot to tell you: don’t cross the streams.
A Little More Big & Little’s
Look, we know the winter seems endless right now. All the tuna tacos, gyro burritos and cheeseburgers in the world probably won’t change that. But, dammit, late-night fave Big & Little’s is giving it a shot anyway. They just opened a Lakeview location with all of the above. Believe...
The Next Burger You Eat in Evanston...
Speaking of expansion: the duality known as DMK/FishBar has hatched a hybrid in Evanston. This is handy information should you find yourself wandering Noyes Street with a woeful hankering for a Satchmo, their shrimp-and-crawfish sandwich. It’s pretty useless if you’re hankering for the actual trumpet player.
They’re Polish and Full of Moonshine
Three reasons to eat paczki next week: Casimir Pulaski Day. Fat Tuesday. Paczki Day.
Three reasons to eat the paczki at Delightful Pastries next week: Moonshine. Vodka. Irish whiskey. All of which will be lacing the custards in their paczki.
Settled: You’re buying the office Polish donuts.
Rolling Out the Red Carpet. And Vodka.
Martinis. They make a huge difference at awards shows. Just ask your average Golden Globe nominee. Or Jacqueline Bisset, for that matter. Good thing you’ll find plenty of cocktailing at this Oscars shindig. Also: red carpets, appetizers, DJs, tuxedos, gowns and no Seacrest to contend with.
It’s Mardi Gras. You’ll Need Rum.
You may want to pay your respects to the honorable traditions of New Orleans on Tuesday. Or you may just want to celebrate like a native. In which case, come here for étouffée, turtle soup and Gulf prawns, then go below deck to Punch House for hurricanes and Sazeracs. Park your float outside.
