Your Perks: 1) The same aviators worn by the Italian Air Force aerobatics team. Eye-catching. 2) More tank tops than we know what to do with. Seriously. Help. 3) One of these very rare, very vintage Omega watches. They move fast, if you can imagine.
Things to do for August 06, 2015
Hot Sauce, Distillery Yoga and the Velvet Underground
Mission Impossible: Rogue Weekend
Wherein You Stir-Fry
Cancel your lunch plans for tomorrow. Don’t ask why, just consider the following: a fast-casual, choose-your-own-adventure stir-fryer called Brightwok Kitchen is now open in the Loop. They’ve got proteins (like grass-fed steak), sauces (like chili-coconut curry) and umami miso soups (like umami miso soup).
Happy Birthday, Andy Warhol
“... because a tropical pop group is covering the Velvet Underground in two sets spanning their entire discography on Andy Warhol’s birthday” is a totally acceptable excuse for you wearing an all-black getup and sunglasses on a sweltering summer night. You should try it sometime.
Dolce Does Breakfast. Also: Lunch.
Dolce Italian has quietly opened for 300% more meals than it had before. Here’s your breakdown...
For breakfast: An assortment of croissant sandwiches and crème fraîche pancakes.
For lunch: Tuna tartare, pasta and a little something they call the Bolognese Burger.
“Little something” might’ve been the wrong turn of phrase.
It’s a Hot Sauce Expo. Nice.
Chicago hosts a lot of festivals come summertime, but none so significant as the inaugural Great Chicago Fiery Foods Festival. You’ll sample wares from a slew of vendors, drink some beers and watch a few heat-forward eating contests. Repeat: watch.
Cocktails and Yoga. Good Thinking.
When your date says, “Let’s do brunch” on Sunday morning, you say...
C) I’ve got a better idea. Let’s do yoga at Chicago Distilling Company, then enjoy a cocktail flight and a distillery tour.
D) All of the above.
Wonder how D would play out.
