Everyone knows that the perfect Father’s Day gift is a shiny new speedboat filled with #1 Dad mugs. But giving your old man the same thing two years in a row would be tacky. So we’ve put together this handy assortment of tokens of appreciation for dear old dad right here.
Things to do for May 31, 2017
Nutella Salad or Regular Salad?
Oh, the Decisions You’ll Have to Make at the Nutella CaféBy Sarah Freeman
Allow Us to Introduce You to the Nutella Salad
It’s almost summer. Hence, two options for you:
1) Eat grilled romaine, micro celery and sunflower sprouts at Beatrix’s new Fulton Market location and grab-and-go market.
2) Say fuck it and get acquainted with chocolate-covered waffles and panzanella at the world’s first Nutella Café.
Both open today. Also, harder decision than it seems.
Just a Great Big Fried Chicken Collaboration
Those fried chicken vixens at Honey Butter Fried Chicken are always tempting you with new takes on their birds. This time, they’ve invited Giant’s chef Jason Vincent to do the dirty work via a chicken strip sandwich covered in hot giardiniera. Damn you, fried chicken vixens.
The Summer’s First Street Fest Is Finally Here
Welcome to fest season. Which is, of course, marked by Do Division. Other things, too, but... Do Division. The summer’s first street festival brings dozens of live musicians and local vendors to Wicker Park, plus plenty of food trucks and beer. As festivals do.
The Lost Art of the Carving Station Isn’t So Lost Anymore
You look like you could use a beef tenderloin carving station. Good thing Maple & Ash’s new Sunday brunch has a beef tenderloin carving station, plus a maple glazed ham carving station, plus tableside ricotta angolotti. Yes, all of those are good things.
Muffin tops, big salads, cocktails by the name of Festivus and Canstandya. We speak, of course, of Seinfeld Night at Scofflaw, where the evening will bring together a collection of nine Seinfeld-themed drinks from past cocktail lists. Reruns are the best.
