The Weekender

Ping-Pong, Bears vs. Packers and John Malkovich

The weekend would like to thank all of its supporters.

Well, This Is a Fitting Goodbye
SOLE SURVIVOR

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.

LOVE YOU PONG TIME

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.

Friday
The Always-Inspiring Mr. Malkovich
SEEING JOHN MALKOVICH

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.

Nov 7-Jan 31; opening reception Nov 7, 5-8pm, no cost, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich at Catherine Edelman Gallery, 300 W Superior St, 312-266-2350

A Slice of 4am Pizza Sounds About Right
SLICE OF LIFE

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...

Sunday
A Bears vs. Packers Party Should Be Fun
GATE KEEPERS

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.
