Times you’ll want a fine bottle of champagne on hand to celebrate: when landing a new client... when christening a boat... when scoring a bottle of 2005 Bollinger “La Grande Année” Brut Champagne. Luckily, we got you the inside track on this highly sought-after bottle courtesy of Wired For Wine. How serendipitous.
Things to do for March 01, 2017
A Very Chicago Watering Hole Has Landed in River North
Meanwhile, Someone Is About to Offer You Some Scotch and a ShoeshineBy Sam Eichner
For Breakfast: Tex-Mex. For Lunch: Also Tex-Mex.
There’s a casual new Tex-Mex joint on the Near North Side. It’s called Texican, and here’s your
tentative plan of action...
Before work: Swing by for a green chorizo breakfast sandwich.
During work: Pick up some garlicky Gulf shrimp tacos.
After work: Cool it on the Tex-Mex.
Burgers, Beers and Blues. Simple yet Effective.
Nachos. Beer. Burgers. Live blues. Such are the essential elements of Mom’s Place, a new bi-level River North watering hole that laughs in the face of the neighborhood’s other, swankier establishments. And then stops laughing just long enough to serve you a bunch of nachos.
Scotch and a Shoeshine
If there’s a better way to end the long workweek than at Revival Food Hall’s comely bar, sampling three different expressions of scotch, listening to a DJ do his thing and receiving a gratis shoeshine, please let us know. Seriously, though.
A Winning Trifecta of Bourbon, Salty Snacks and Playing Cards
Sure, you could host a poker night. Or you could head to Amy Morton’s meat-forward hideout, the Barn. See, after 10pm on Saturdays, they’ll bring you some special apothecary-bottled bourbon drinks, salty snacks and playing cards. Which seems better than hosting a poker night.
It’s a Dessert Tasting, Plus Beer
Yes, there’s a dessert tasting happening on Sunday. It’s where you’ll eat things like Osteria Langhe’s panna cotta and Cookie Spin’s salted caramel Oreo brownies. It’s where you’ll drink DryHop beer and get a chair massage. It’s where your happy place is. If only for one fleeting, beautiful afternoon.
