Your Perks: 1) A sleek scale that tracks your weight, body mass index, water weight and more. Thorough. 2) A bioluminescent pet dinosaur. Now there’s three words you never thought you’d see together. 3) A perfectly fitting button-down shirt that was measured from your iPhone. Your phone, the tailor.
Things to do for October 23, 2014
The Weekend Has Been Captured for Your Amusement
Is the weekend your clown? Does the weekend amuse you?
These Boots Were Made for Buying
It’s officially fall. The evidence is everywhere. Leaves. The wafting aroma of pumpkin everything. Your sudden interest in sturdy footwear. Hence, you’ll probably want to check out this Red Wing Heritage trunk show. They’re the best boots out of Minnesota not currently occupied by Prince.
An Unnecessary Amount of Oysters
Tonight, you’ll partake in a celebration of the mighty bivalve at Bow & Stern. Begin with sparkling wine and a dozen raw oysters before sitting down to four courses involving things like oysters Rockefeller, popcorn-fried oysters and... key lime pie. Sorry, that last one’s oyster-free.
Ichabod Crane. Linus van Pelt. Billy Corgan. Some people just have a complicated relationship with pumpkins. You, on the other hand—give you a sharp knife, a few beers and a DJ to set the mood, and you’re set. This pumpkin-carving bash really gets you.
This Art Comes with a Great Story
Art is a personal thing. One man’s trash is another man’s... painting done by a Chicago homeless woman whose work is now shown in museums around the world. This event—featuring quirky outsider and folk art—is a great place to stock up. This has been fun. Thanks.
When BellyQ Is Not BellyQ
BellyQ is a great place for Thai fried chicken and solid cocktails. Let us not disabuse you of that notion. But it’s also a great place for art, gifts and music. At least during this monthly bazaar called GăGé. Pronounce that five times fast.
