How Rick Bayless Does Oktoberfest
In the 1800s, Germans brought their brewing methods to Mexico. On Saturday, Rick Bayless is paying it forward with an Oktoberfest party at Cruz Blanca, where they’ll showcase their new lager alongside Strasbourg pretzels, live polka music and bratwurst tacos. Bratwurst tacos: it’s an Oktoberfest miracle.
You Will Drink and Eat Whiskey Here
2Twenty2 Tavern grand-opens on Saturday in the Loop. On weekends, you’ll have a new late-night lounge for live music and aged-in-house whiskey drinks. On weekdays, you’ll have an after-work hang replete with whiskey-glazed wings and whiskey-glazed donuts. Either way: whiskey.
