Things to do for October 11, 2017
The Riverwalk Brings Beer and Pyrotechnics Together for Oktoberfest
And Hoosier Mama's West Town Pie Shop Gets a Little Less LittleBy Sarah Freeman
Hoosier Mama Expands Because the World Needs More Pie
West Town's favorite pie shop is expanding its humble home base into a quaint café. Hoosier Mama busted down its east wall to open up an adjacent coffee shop with additional seating and savory pies. Good for you, Hoosier Mama. And good for you, you.
Beers and Pyrotechnic Waterfalls Along the River
We know you have options when it comes to celebrating Oktoberfest in Chicago. But may we suggest you head down to the Riverwalk, where dozens of local breweries will be pouring their favorite Märzens? If that's not convincing enough, a pyrotechnic waterfall display will end the evening. Just so you know.
A New Place to Eat and Drink Bourbon
Sometimes you want a stiff bourbon cocktail. Other times you want smoked pork belly made with a Koval bourbon date glaze. When those times come, head to Woven & Bound. It's Marriott Marquis' new American brasserie where you can have both. Both is good.
Goodbye, Parson's Patio. Hello, Parson's Brunch.
The patio at Parson's Chicken and Fish is closed for the season, and while you're entitled to have certain feelings about that, take solace in the return of their all-week brunch menu. It has the old favorites like chicken and waffles, plus some new soon-to-be-favorites like shrimp and grits. It's a fair trade-off.
The Annual Gathering of Agave-Everything Returns
Mexico in a Bottle returns to Chop Shop this weekend, and it'll help if you like tequila. It's there where you can get an immersive agave education via sipping on small batch tequilas and mezcals, then sample some food from Quiote and Leña Brava. There are worse ways to spend a Sunday.
