Your Perks: 1) A case of six carefully selected incredible red wines from the Columbia Valley. Only the best for you. 2) An aerodynamic, rip-proof and virtually weightless umbrella. 3) A number of vintage-inspired, gallery-worthy, LED-illuminated prints. You’re about to see the light.
Things to do for November 06, 2014
Ping-Pong, Bears vs. Packers and John Malkovich
The weekend would like to thank all of its supporters.
Well, This Is a Fitting Goodbye
Altman’s Shoes. For 47 years in the Loop, it’s been a place where a gentleman could talk insoles, suede uppers and hand-tooled leather. Perhaps other things. But now, an era ends. Not with a bang. Not with a whimper. But with 40% off all shoes this month. It’s a happy ending.
Bring Your Killer Ping-Pong Instincts
Some play ping-pong for glory. Some for fame. You do it for the kids. And the beer. And the jerk chicken. Hence, this charity ping-pong opportunity featuring tourneys against Bears players and food from places like Chuck’s and Caribbean joint Mr. Brown’s Lounge. Fine, maybe a little glory.
The Always-Inspiring Mr. Malkovich
You might look at John Malkovich and see an esteemed thespian, a Steppenwolf member and that guy from Being John Malkovich. Artist Sandro Miller sees... everything else. The opening reception for his new exhibit featuring the actor starring in the greatest artworks of all time is tomorrow. If only there were an Oscar for photographs.
A Slice of 4am Pizza Sounds About Right
Psst. You. Yeah, you. The person who’s about to slink through the streets of River North in the wee hours. The one who’s about to look amenable to a foldable-but-still-kinda-crunchy slice of pizza. The Pizza Window is a new late-night offshoot of Boss Bar, and it would like a word...
A Bears vs. Packers Party Should Be Fun
Bears vs. Packers. You may be ready for this. You may not be ready for this. You may just want to tailgate yourself silly by stopping by the Mariano’s off Randolph Street where Revolution Brewing, Tallgrass Beef and Leaderbar will be set up to help you do that.
