Things to do for January 10, 2018
A Nordic Ice Bar High Above the Chicago Streets
Also, Brunch Pizza. Just... Brunch Pizza.By Sarah Freeman
A Danish Juice Expert Arrives in Chicago
Meet Joe. He makes juice. Strawberry-kiwi and turmeric-pineapple juice, all over the world. And now, he's making them in the Gold Coast. Joe & the Juice's first Chicago location is now open with coffee and juice and spicy tuna sandwiches. Go on, Joe.
Meet the Newest Member of the Small Cheval Family
First, there was Au Cheval. Then, there was Small Cheval. Now, there are many Small Chevals, thanks to the newest location in Old Town. They'll keep doing what they do best there, which is serve griddled burgers, golden fries and then open a 100-seat patio come summer. You can just keep allowing it.
There's a Nordic Ice Bar at LondonHouse Now. You Should Go.
With this slightly less frigid weather comes the return of rooftop season. Apparently. Because LondonHouse has transformed its terrace into a Nordic escape complete with vodka cocktails served in frozen vessels, plus hot-rock duck breast drizzled with cranberry sauce. Silly rooftop season.
Incoming: Brunch Pizza
Making a case for eating pizza every meal of the day is Bar Cargo and its new brunch menu with things like a Roman-style pizza covered in Nutella and fresh berries. Oh, and a crab and avocado benedict on charred ciabatta if you're into that sort of thing. "If" can be a funny word sometimes.
It's a Cider Cocktail Competition. Spoiler: You Win.
Maybe you're unfamiliar with cider cocktails. Maybe you'd like to get familiar with cider cocktails by drinking a couple of them made by some of Chicago's finest bartenders. Maybe you should head to Virtue Cider's Stone Fence Cider Cocktail Competition to figure it all out.
What Else Is New
Jeff Bezos Is Now the Richest Person in History
