The Publican Sails into Wicker Park

The guys behind Violet Hour, Big Star and Dove’s Luncheonette continue their Six Corners domination plan. Tonight, they give you this Wicker Park spin-off of Publican. You know the deal here: beer and oysters. Should fit in quite nicely around these parts.

Edgewater’s Got Some Delicious New Indian Things for You

Modern India: bright, eclectic, teeming with energy. Modern Indian food: bright, eclectic, teeming with calamari vindaloo, yam samosas, cocktails with chai-infused bourbon and gin-spiked lassis. At least it is at this low-key new Bollywood-themed Edgewater spot. And that’s good enough.

Opens Nov 30, 5pm, Mango Pickle, 5842 N Broadway, 773-944-5555

Friday
The Most Holiday-ish Bar in All the Land
’TIS THE SEASON FOR MIRACLES

The Most Holiday-ish Bar in All the Land

It’s that magical time of year when a team of elves from New York barware company Cocktail Kingdom comes to spread cheer via a pop-up bar called Miracle. It’s taken over Fox Bar and infused it with warmth, happiness, eggnog cocktails and cinnamon-and-ancho-mezcal drinks. See, magic.

It’s Going to Be a Very Chicago Holiday Indeed

If you’re holiday shopping this weekend, first, whoa, look at you go. Second, know that it’s Gift Chicago weekend, wherein 36 independent shops across town (Lillstreet, Rotofugi, Neighborly...) welcome you with discounts, gratis things, gifts and candy canes. Third, there is no third.

Monday
Exercising Your Right to Bear Whiskey
STRICTLY UNPROHIBITED

Exercising Your Right to Bear Whiskey

While the repeal of the 18th Amendment was a terrible blow to the bathtub gin industry, on Monday it allows you to go to Scofflaw for their Repeal Day fete to eat deviled eggs and drink a Mary Pickford without fear of Eliot Ness. Actually, deviled eggs were probably always allowed.

Dec 5, 5pm-2am, no cover, Scofflaw, 3201 W Armitage Ave, 773-252-9700

Chris LaMorte’s favorite lapel: peak. Favorite bulldog: French. Can you offer him a glass of champagne: yes. Often mistaken for: Zach Galifianakis. Often mistakes himself for: Bradley Cooper.
