It’s no secret that Argentina bears some of the most delicious Malbec in the world. And this bottle with notes of blackberry, raspberry and violet is no exception. So you should be excited to hear that we have them by the half dozen. We presume you’re losing your mind somewhere out there.

May Your Game 7 Be Full of Chicago-Style Hot Dog Burritos
And Your Weekend Be Full of Chocolate Churro Beer and Paul McGee’s RumBy Sam Eichner
The weekend can keep a secret if you can.
The Only Thing Crazier Than a Game 7 Is...
Crazy time in Chicago. The election’s the election. Game 7’s happening. And something called Burrito Lab has usurped the kitchen at Surf, producing Hawaiian-y pork shoulder burritos, vegan burritos with hemp hearts and, for a limited time, Chicago-style hot dog burritos. So, yeah, they’re flying that W pretty fucking hard.
Renowned tiki drink enthusiast Paul McGee collaborated on an overproof rum called Plantation O.F.T.D., and it’s finally available in Chicago. So tonight, he’s throwing a little launch party at Lost Lake with O.F.T.D. Old Fashioneds, O.F.T.D. Daiquiri Frappes and a fruity drink served in a pineapple. It too contains rum.
You Need a New Fall Suit. These People Have Those.
Calling all persons desiring a nice new fall suit: the e-tailors known as Combatant Gentlemen are opening a shop-within-a-shop at Bloomingdale’s tomorrow, featuring touchscreens to build made-to-order suits, plus a full line of footwear and dapper Italian-made things from their newest collection. We assume you’re one of those persons.
Chocolate Churro Porters and a Two-Item Food Menu
A few awesomely funky things about Moody Tongue’s new tasting room.
1) The chocolate churro porter, the bourbon-barrel-aged barleywine and the eight other beers on tap.
2) The bottom of this menu, which includes just one salty and one sweet item.
3) The feeling you get when you put 1 and 2 together.
Caviar Mac and Cheese Plays a Part in This
At Saturday’s Mac and Cheese Fest, the city’s finest chefs are making you the eponymous American dish with everything from Wagyu beef to caviar. Then, at Sunday’s first-ever Strange Foods Chicago Festival, you’re sampling pig feet pozole, Croatian sausages and pho shooters. Should be an interesting weekend.
