Things to do for October 07, 2015
A Mexican Diner, Donuts and Plenty of Gin
The weekend can’t feel its face.
Next to the Taco Joint: More Mexican
The Mexican is a new diner-style restaurant next door to the Taco Joint. And it’s where you’ll find mezcalitas, Sinaloa-style rotisserie chicken and lime-cured whitefish ceviche. The Mexican is an early-aughts romantic adventure comedy starring Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts. Just saying. There’s a difference.
Ties. They’re Taking Over theWit.
If you stop by theWit any day between Friday and New Year’s Day, you’ll be privy to a Tie Bar pop-up. Which means a select assortment of ties, socks, belts and other nice things will just be sitting in there waiting for you. Is... how these things work.
A West Coast Pizzeria Hits Evanston
When we say “fast-casual personal pizzas,” you say: “Meh.” When we say “fast-casual, wood-fired Neapolitan-style personal pizzas with toppings like spicy soppressata and roasted meatballs at this new place in Evanston called 800 Degrees,” you say: “Sorry for saying ‘meh’ earlier.”
Gin and Clothes and Things
Northern Grade, that roving marketplace full of handsomeness, stops at Chop Shop this weekend. Your
Saturday night: Hit the after-party, where you’ll get exclusive access to select gear, discounts and gratis Brooklyn Gin cocktails.
Sunday afternoon: Return to browse. Or watch football.
Caviar and Champagne. Also, Donuts.
If you’re feeling a quick breakfast: Check out the new Lakeview location of Stan’s
Donuts for some coffee and apple fritters.
If you’re feeling an elevated three-course brunch: C Chicago just launched one with caviar, lobster scrambles and champagne.
If you’re feeling torn right now: Totally normal.
