Let's Make 2018 the Year of the Burger

One new year, two new taverns. First up is Maillard Tavern, a double-burgers and foie gras fries joint from the Piccolo Sogno guys in River West. Your second offering is the Shelby, and it's got its own take on burgers, plus giant baked potatoes in Humboldt Park. Either way, you're having a burger.

Just because New Year's Eve has come and gone doesn't mean your Champagne-toasting days are over. Enter: Esquire Champagne Room, the latest addition to Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse. Needless to say, it doesn't skimp on the caviar and king crab spring rolls. Or the Champagne, for that matter.

Chicago's First Rage Room Wants You to Break Some Stuff

Stressed out? There's a Rage Room for that. Or, more specially, Chicago's first Rage Room that will let you smash a bunch of ceramic plates and old computer monitors for the low, low price of $15. Though you really can't put a price on rage.

Ted Baker Will Not Stand for You Paying More Than 50% for His Wares

New Year, new you, new quilted panel bomber jacket. That's how the saying goes, right? It also mentions somthing about taking 50% off that and a bunch of other rakish essentials from Ted Baker, yeah? Either way, it should.

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.
