Your Perks: 1) Waxed-canvas bags that can handle whatever you throw at them this winter. 2) A truly special bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue. It’s whiskey to be celebrated. Or sipped judiciously. 3) A fitted button-down from Jared Lang. You’ve never looked better.
Things to do for January 22, 2015
New Burgers, Ice Curling and a Twin Peaks Marathon
Weekend is thicker than water.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
