Two New Ways to Eat and Drink Beer

Would you rather eat pilsner-infused brats in the South Loop or drink Alternative Facts Belgian ale in Sauganash? The former takes you to Baderbräu Brewing Company to sample the offerings of its recently opened kitchen. The latter involves a trip to Alarmist Brewing’s new taproom. Either way, beer is involved.

An Exhibit. A Party. All for the Rolling Stones.

The Rolling Stones are taking over Navy Pier with 500 pieces of memorabilia from their glory days. The exhibit kicks off this weekend with a gratis party at Hard Rock featuring Stones tribute band Hot Rocks. It was that or... no, Hot Rocks sounds about right.

Just Throwing This Out There as an Easter Brunch Option

While everyone else is fighting over the last slice of ham, you could be eating pork belly hash with soft scrambled eggs and drinking micheladas at Quiote’s new brunch. Ham fights probably don’t really exist, but it felt right.

Sarah Freeman is often accused of hiding secrets in her hair. She can make any cocktail, as long as that cocktail is a rye Old Fashioned, and has never met a saison she didn’t like.
