A Happy New Cantina in Logan Square

Next Thursday, you’ll celebrate Thanksgiving with turkey, cranberries and stuffing at home. Tonight, you’ll celebrate the opening of Dos Urban Cantina with beef pibil, sea bass ceviche tostadas and mezcal at their white quartz bar. Sometime between, you’ll probably eat some other foods.

Fall Might Last Forever. So: This Sale.

You: I feel like fall could last forever at this rate.
El Niño: It could. Speaking of which, Haberdash has up to 50% off fall-appropriate items like quilted blazers, Gitman Bros. shirts and down vests.
You: Thanks. Hey, what are you exactly?
El Niño: I think I’m a weather pattern or something.

Thursday
Hey, It’s a Champagne-Sabering Class
PARTY FAVOR

Hey, It’s a Champagne-Sabering Class

Drumbar’s GM is about to teach you how to saber a bottle of champagne. Just imagine... you’re at a holiday party. Someone grabs the bubbly. You unsheathe your saber. Sabering ensues. Your bold act is met with rapturous applause. That’s just one scenario.

Nov 19, 7pm, no cost, Drumbar, 201 E Delaware Pl, 312-933-4805

Friday
Parson’s Ice Rink. It’s Back.
PARSON’S OF ANARCHY

Parson’s Ice Rink. It’s Back.

“Won’t it be cold?” you asked. “I prefer Parson’s in the summer.” To which we responded: “It might be cold, but their ice rink is back. Plus, there’s hot spiked cider and fried chicken.” “Hmm,” you said. “I enjoy those items.”

That was us convincing you to go to Parson’s on Friday.

Ice rink now open (skate rentals limited; BYO skates encouraged), Parson’s Chicken & Fish, 2952 W Armitage Ave, 773-384-3333

Saturday

Two of Your Favorite New Things

For pasta and alcohol: Head to La Storia, a new multilevel Italian joint in a historic Gold Coast building with truffle gnocchi (pictured) and lots of amaro.
For pasta and alcohol: Here’s Bar Marta, a new operation involving bacon-and-sage agnolotti, plus double Old Fashioneds.

Hope you like pasta and alcohol.
