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.

The Moral of This Story Is Most Definitely Rum

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.

Nov 2, 4-8pm, no cover, Lost Lake, 3154 W Diversey Ave, 773-961-7475

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.

Sam Eichner likes literature, reality television and his twin cats equally. He has consistently been told he needs a shave since he started growing facial hair.
