A Michigan Brewery Plants Some Chicago Roots

Our friends from the east, known for their barrel-aged sour ales, just set up shop in Hyde Park. We're talking, of course, about Michigan-based Jolly Pumpkin. You can enjoy beer and smoked chicken pizza in a reclaimed fermentation barrel that sits in the middle of the space. Or, you know, at the bar.

2,215-Square-Feet of Discounted Ted Baker

It's time to welcome the newest addition of the Fashion Outlets. Ted Baker is bringing its Autumn/Winter 2016 collection and some deep discounts to Rosemont. Checkered jackets. Herringbone crew necks. Suede gloves. You know how they do it in London.

Small Cheval Takes Another Step Towards World Domination
BURGER TIME

Small Cheval Takes Another Step Towards World Domination

Small Cheval is at it again. This glass-encased beacon of burger goodness just opened along the river to make your lunch a little more fry-forward. They're serving their signature griddled burgers with your choice of bacon or no bacon. "Choice" can be a funny word sometimes.

These Bars' Halloween Costumes are Better Than Yours

Moneygun and Replay have already decided on their Halloween costumes. The former will dress up as everyone's favorite red-and-white striped food chain (ahem, TGI Fridays) complete with Mudslides and plenty of flair. While the latter takes a page from The Simpson's playbook with Duff Beer and Red Squishee cocktails as Moe's Tavern. Just... yes.

Oct 27-28, no cover, TGI-Moneygun, 660 W Lake St, 312-600-0600; Through Oct 31, no cover, Moe's Tavern at Replay Lincoln Park, 2833 N Sheffield Ave, 773-665-5660

BLOODY GOOD

Welcome to Fat Rice's Jazz Funeral

Fat Rice is offering a taste of the Big Easy for its Halloween transformation. Welcome to a jazz funeral, where spicy frog legs and gator gumbo is for dinner and The-King-Is-Dead cake with Bloody Boudin is for dessert. This would probably be weird any other time of year.

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.
