The Weekender

Hot Doug’s Pizza, Tacos and When Harry Met Sally

Weekend for Mayor.

Thursday
Better Line Up a Date for Tonight
HARRY SITUATION

Better Line Up a Date for Tonight

Sure, you’ve probably seen When Harry Met Sally. But we’re willing to bet you’ve never seen it at a historic Chicago theater where you and your date have unfettered access to a very full bar. Because normally you just eat popcorn during these things.

Friday
Eataly and Wine and Cheese and You
CHEESE WARNING

Eataly and Wine and Cheese and You

PB&J. Batman and Robin. Wine and cheese. Of those three dynamic duos, only one is being celebrated at Eataly with an astounding assortment of Italian wine and fancy local cheese. That last part was a dead giveaway, wasn’t it...

Saturday
Valet Is Sort Of Way Better Now
PARK KING

Valet Is Sort Of Way Better Now

What we have here is an app that automatically deducts the total cost of your valet at places like Momotaro and Girl & the Goat, and then alerts you upon your car’s arrival so you don’t have to wait outside in the cold. Your call, though.

Sunday
From Hot Doug’s Ashes: Pizza
DOUG LIFE

From Hot Doug’s Ashes: Pizza

Many tears were shed last October when Chicago’s legendary emporium of encased meats closed its doors. But from death comes rebirth. And from rebirth comes pepper jack pizzas blanketed with Hot Doug’s famous Atomic Bomb sausage. Such is the circle of life. Also, pizza. Pizza is circle-shaped, too.

Monday
This Is a Short Story About Tacos
WEST SIDE STORY

This Is a Short Story About Tacos

Crazy to think there was a time when you couldn’t just wander over to the Near West Side for a quick braised-goat burrito, pork shoulder breakfast taco or adobo-chicken torta. Well, the La Adelita food truck is an actual restaurant there now, so that’s suddenly possible. Still. Crazy.
