What You’re Going to Do About Winter

This weekend, the rakish folk over at Haberdash are offering you 25% off all of their winter accessories like trapper hats from Barbour and wool scarves from S.N.S. Herning. Because the thing about the cold is that it’s cold.

Through Feb 1 at Haberdash (all locations) or online with code “BUNDLEUP”

Wherein We Talk About Corned Beef

Local purveyors of damn fine marbled meat Crown Corned Beef & Foods Inc. just opened a little deli joint adjacent to their factory. Which means you’re now privy to a small yet mighty selection of beef-based sandwiches, housemade chips and that’s about it. But... sandwiches.

Sound the Guacamole Bar Alarm
BOWL GAME

Sound the Guacamole Bar Alarm

The play: serving your guests chips and guacamole at your Super Bowl party. The audible: preordering a massive guacamole bar to go from XOCO, stocked with enough homemade tortilla chips, fresh salsa and Mexican toppings to appease over 10 people. The end: is pretty much just the end.

Preorder by noon on Jan 31, $35, XOCO Wicker Park, 1471 N Milwaukee Ave, 872-829-3821

They Put a Lot of Food in This Bloody

The mixological masterminds over at Bull & Bear and Public House have created a rather fantastical Bloody Mary just in time for the big game. It’s got a smoked chicken wing, thick-cut bacon, bourbon-glazed shrimp, a sriracha-OJ-grapefruit juice concoction and vodka in it. We can’t really stress that last one enough.

Available Feb 1, $14, Super Bowl Bloody Mary at Bull & Bear, 431 N Wells St, 312-527-5973, and Public House, 400 N State St, 312-265-1240

REVERIE ON THE PLAY

You’re Watching the Game Here Now

Odds you’ll watch the Super Bowl: very good. Odds you’ll watch the Super Bowl at Chicago Scene’s upscale viewing party while shamelessly indulging in a smattering of specialty ribs, sliders and chicken wings: pretty good. Odds you’ll make it through the Katy Perry performance: consult your bookie.
