Things to do for January 06, 2016

The Weekender

Antique Bourbon, Fried-Chicken Pizza and One Great Brunch

Happy New Weekend.

Wednesday
A Spanish Market. Plus Tapas. Neat.
SQUARING CONTEST

A Spanish Market. Plus Tapas. Neat.

The Spanish Square, in two parts:

Part 1: Tapas. You and a date get all date-y over marinated swordfish bites and stuffed red peppers.
Part 2: The Market. You procure some zesty salchichón, cheese and a bottle of Spanish red, and do the date thing at home instead.

Note the “date” theme.

Thursday
Fried-Chicken Pizza. Oh, and Cheap Trick.
PIECE BE WITH YOU

Fried-Chicken Pizza. Oh, and Cheap Trick.

All of January, you’ll be able to try Piece’s limited-time buffalo fried-chicken pizza, some proceeds of which go to charity. On Thursday, though, you’ll be able to enjoy said pizza, plus a live performance from Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen. Which just feels weirdly right-er.

Friday
Swedish Fish and 1930s Bourbon
PLEAD THE SIXTH

Swedish Fish and 1930s Bourbon

Six things to know about the Sixth:

1) It’s a cocktail bar.
2) That perfume sprayer sprays flower water.
3) 1930s bourbon is involved.
4) So are duck-fat frites.
5) One tiki drink has a Swedish Fish garnish.
6) There’s a Trix-inspired libation.

There’s a “Trix” and “kids” joke in here somewhere.

Now open, The Sixth, 2200 W Lawrence Ave, 773-433-5959

Saturday
Haberdash, We Hardly Knew Thee
BEFORE YOU GO

Haberdash, We Hardly Knew Thee

Haberdash, that bastion of dapperness, is going out of business. But don’t be sad. Until they close, you’ll find that pretty much everything they have in stock is up to 50% off, including Gitman Bros. flannels, quilted blazers and Red Wing boots. Fine. You can be a little sad.

Sunday
Avec + Bang Bang Pie = This Brunch
ONE SUNDAY MORNING

Avec + Bang Bang Pie = This Brunch

If you like Avec (which you do), and you like Bang Bang Pie (which you also do), then you’ll really like this one-time collaboration brunch between Avec and Bang Bang Pie involving honey butter biscuits, gumbo over grits and spiced cherry pies. It’s science, is all.

Jan 10, 10am-2pm, Avec, 615 W Randolph St, 312-377-2002
