This Three-Story Watch Boutique Beckons

Razny Jewelers recently opened their first downtown location on Oak Street, bringing you...

1) The only people in the city authorized to sell you Patek Philippes.
2) Three stories’ worth of Rolexes.
3) An exceptionally beautiful timepiece you won’t need to adjust until spring.

You’re welcome for the early reminder.

THE SECRET HISTORY

A Supersecret BYO Whiskey Club

Secrets, secrets are no fun. But we’re willing to make an exception for the second location of BYO club Birch Road Cellar. It’s opening tonight in an undisclosed Roscoe Village location with the added bonus of specialty ice, oak spirals and dozens of bitters for whiskey drinkers. See? Fun.

He’s a World-Champion Pitmaster for a Reason...

Remember that one time world-champion BBQ pitmaster Myron Mixon opened a restaurant in Wrigleyville earlier this year? Well, tonight he’ll be there to smoke a whole hog and prepare all the fixings (hush puppies, baby back mac, etc.). We predict it will be equally memorable.

HALL PASS

Bloody Mary Carts, Coming Through

This weekend, Revival Food Hall starts its holiday-time Saturday brunch service. Choose from new brunch offerings (like the Budlong’s champagne-and-fried-chicken special) and mashups between vendors (like a Smoque brisket and Fat Shallot hash). Also, keep your eyes peeled for Bloody Mary carts. For obvious reasons.

Saturdays through Dec 17, 9am-4pm (5pm at the bar), Revival Food Hall, 125 S Clark St

A Magazine in Live-Performance Form

Pop-Up Magazine is a lineup of prominent writers—from the likes of New York, Esquire and Vice—who travel the country bringing their stories to the stage. And on Saturday night, they’re coming to the Harris Theater. Please prepare to have your conception of “magazines” challenged. Thank you.

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.
