Just when you think you've got a "guy" for everything... Pillow Guy comes along. So now you've got a pillow guy. And he's used his extensive knowledge of thread-counts, fill-power and getting a good night's sleep to curate this collection of pillows, comforters and linen sets. Presumably so you don't have to.
Things to do for January 17, 2018
This Late-Night Happy Hour Is Filled With Caviar Burgers and Dollar Oysters
And This Conceptual Dive Bar Has Fake Bottles of Beer and Real Shots of MalörtBy Sarah Freeman
It's January, Have Some Really Cold Ice Cream
Disregard that fresh layer of snow on the ground. Just try to focus on the chocolate brownie ice cream skewered with a chocolate syringe that's in front of you courtesy of this new liquid nitrogen-focused ice cream spot in Lakeview. Or just put a pin in it until summer.
Saigon Sisters Sets Up Shop in Chicago's Newest Food Hall
There are food halls, and then there are food halls with caramelized chicken bao and red curry bowls. This is a story about the latter. It’s called Current Modern Kitchen, and it boasts tenants such as Saigon Sisters and Bang Chop Thai. We never said it was a long story.
Your Favorite Neighborhood Conceptual Dive Bar
Emporium's latest pop-up is a conceptual watering hole with things like fake bottles of beers served in front of fake brick walls that are the vision of street artist Don't Fret. But it'll also be serving the very real Chicago Handshake, aka Old Style with a shot of Malört. That doesn't seem optional.
This Beer Fest Has a Dark Side
There are 200 bottles of beer on the wall, and all of them are yours for the sampling at Chicago Ale Fest. The winter edition brings together the best imperial stouts and brown ales alongside food trucks and a "hidden gems" booth featuring bottles from brewers’ personal cellars. In conclusion: 200 beers.
Dollar Oysters and Caviar-Covered Burgers Live Here
The fine people at Heritage are offering you a second chance at happy hour for exactly one hour every Friday and Saturday night. What this means for you: $1 oysters and the caviar-topped No Regrets Burger. And $3 vodka shots but... yeah.
What Else Is New
The Best Celebrity Google Arts and Culture Matches Are...
... all right here. We'd also like to inform you that there's a new member of the Weird Internet Hall of Fame: Journey's legendary 1983 music video for "Separate Ways." And did you hear? Penthouse Magazine has invented a hybrid of whiskey and tequila.
