Things to do for September 10, 2015
Rick Bayless, Lobster Rolls and a Tailgate Party
Big & Little’s Does Wicker Park
You’re a nice person. You deserve nice things. And there’s nothing quite as nice as a whole fried soft-shell crab that’s been stuffed into a sandwich and conveniently placed inside the newest Big & Little’s alongside burgers and seafood tacos. At least nothing we know of.
Delicious Things Are Afoot at Navy Pier
Going to Navy Pier just got a lot better. Mostly because both DMK and Fish Bar just opened within a 3,000-square-foot area right next to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. There will be burgers. There will be lobster rolls. There will be a strong chance of pre-Othello spiked milkshakes.
Rick Bayless has summoned chefs like Parachute’s Beverly Kim and Johnny Clark to compete against chefs from Mexico (and a bartender from New York’s Death + Co) in a celebration of all things Mexican food. What that means for you: breakfast, tequila and maybe tequila for breakfast.
Kroll’s is throwing a tailgate party for the Bears vs. Packers opener. Half of its parking lot will represent Green Bay territory with brats and butter burgers. The other half will represent Chicago with hot dogs and Italian beef. The Bloody Marys and beer will represent... mutually enjoyed consumption.
