Your Perks: 1) A bottle of Lock Stock & Barrel 13 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey—arguably the most acclaimed new whiskey on the market. 2) 34% off a brilliantly simple wireless speaker. 3) Really exquisite vintage barware from the golden age of drinking. Your home bar deserves this.
Things to do for March 13, 2014
Free Burgers, St. Pat’s and a Place with 114 Beers
Maybe it’s Irish, maybe it’s not, but kiss the weekend anyway.
Because Spring’s Gotta Come Soon, Right?
Look at the calendar. We’re seven days from spring. (Cue wry, rueful laughter.) Still, this new LA-based shop in the Southport Corridor carries a line of men’s lightweight T-shirts, beach-worthy chinos-type pants and supersoft henleys. You may just go out like a lamb after all.
If You Want 114 Beers and a Green River...
Frozen or not, they’re still planning to dye the Chicago River green on Saturday. Which means you’ll probably need a nearby retreat for a hearty Irish breakfast and a pint of Guinness. This party has it. It also has 113 other kinds of beer. In case you’re feeling nontraditional.
It’s a Spiked-Mint-Milkshake Kind of Day
A seat at the riverside patio of an elegant steakhouse for appetizers and cocktails: also highly recommended. Order corned beef and cabbage or just a peppermint-schnapps-spiked mint milkshake. Frankly, if you were any closer to the river, you’d be green.
Well, This Party Looks Suitably Insane
The Ides of March is gonna get weird. But good weird. Specifically, Redmoon weird. This party is filled with over-the-top-ness. Examples: you’ll find a BBQ cyclone grill, which is sort of a bike-powered barbecue grill carousel, and a Whiskey Libation Server, which is... well, some things you just have to experience.
Hamburgers Are the New Birthday Cake
Nothing else sparks the imagination quite like these two little words: free hamburgers. Just kidding. Hamburger is sort of a long word. Anyway, to celebrate its fourth anniversary—the beef anniversary—all M Burger locations are giving you any kind of burger with your purchase of... anything.
