The Weekender

New Burgers, Ice Curling and a Twin Peaks Marathon

Weekend is thicker than water.

Thursday
From NYC with Love. And Travel Gear.
LEXDRAY DAY

From NYC with Love. And Travel Gear.

Let’s take a quick inventory of items you’re likely to find at theWit’s new Lexdray pop-up shop: 1) aviation-inspired watches from Avi-8. 2) Various grooming products from Blind Barber. 3) Oh, and a carefully curated selection of dashing travel accessories from the NYC brand Lexdray. Hence the name.

This Burger Bar Will Have Much Bourbon
PATTY MCGEE

This Burger Bar Will Have Much Bourbon

Your options for hand-spun shakes, fried pickles and elk burgers are a bit limited these days. Luckily, Lincoln Park’s Burger Bar has opened its second location in the South Loop with all of the above, plus (once the liquor license arrives next week) 80 beers and a bourbon-centric bar. So... upgrade.

Friday
Kaiser Tiger Has Ice Curling Now
DUKE OF CURL

Kaiser Tiger Has Ice Curling Now

Ever walk into a bar and think, “Hey, wouldn’t it be cool to go ice curling right now?” If you have, Kaiser Tiger now has ice curling rinks in their outdoor beer garden, along with hot cider, whiskey and bacon s’mores. If you haven’t, well, there’s always darts.

Saturday
As Far As New Brunches Go: Nice One
PROTEIN BAR

As Far As New Brunches Go: Nice One

The newest place to take a brunch date in the West Loop is Bar Takito. They’ll serve you Latin American street food like Arepa Steak & Eggs, housemade chorizo breakfast tacos and Columbian bacon. Then you’ll leave and probably not want to eat again for a while.

Sat-Sun, 10am-3pm, Bar Takito, 201 N Morgan St, 312-888-9485

Monday
A Twin Peaks Marathon at the Public
DAVE NEW WORLD

A Twin Peaks Marathon at the Public

This Monday night, the Public Hotel is hosting a marathon viewing party for David Lynch’s Twin Peaks in honor of its sacrificial protagonist Laura Palmer. Good cherry pie and damn fine cups of coffee (regrettably) not included. Exclusion is so Lynchian.

Jan 26, 7pm-midnight, no cover, the Screening Room at the Public Hotel, 1301 N State Pkwy, 312-787-3700, RSVP here
