Here's a Bright Idea

Coocepts uses state-of-the-art 3D printing to make really cool wireless lamps that look like lit-up moons, dandelions and city skylines. The moon lamps will definitely come in handy should you be interested in recreating last week’s eclipse. Or just interested in creating some extra reading light.

The Place Where They Keep All the Whiskey Is Turning 24

As Chicago's favorite whiskey bar, Delilah's, turns another year older, it's debuting its next collaborative bottle during a rock-and-roll-fueled 24th anniversary party. This year's blend is a five-year-old single malt rye distilled by Oppidan Distillery in Wheeling. No need to bring a cake.

Aug 31, 4pm-2am, no cover, Delilah's, 2771 N Lincoln Ave, 773-472-2771

This Billy Reid Sale Is a Many-Splendored Thing

The good people at Billy Reid are jumping on the end-of-season sale bandwagon. Which means you can go ahead and take 60% off that floral button-down or new suede bomber you’ve been eyeing. So go ahead and do that.

Goodbye, Red Door. Hello, Royal Grocer & Co.
QUICK CHANGE

Goodbye, Red Door. Hello, Royal Grocer & Co.

Bucktown's finest patio is back with a new name and a new fancy-pants menu. The Royal Grocer & Co. steps in where Red Door left off, with late-summer succotash and fried chicken over smoked collard greens. No patios were harmed in the making of this restaurant.

What Else Is New

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.
