It's the Super Bowl. Eat Like It.
BOWL FOOD

It's the Super Bowl. Eat Like It.

For some, this weekend will be an occasion to watch a game. For others, it will be an occasion to have hearth-baked lasagna and maple-poached salmon sent to their doors from Roister's new delivery service (which is closed on Sunday, so order ahead). Or to indulge in Bang Bang’s Super Pie loaded with potato chips and puppy chow peanuts. Food: check.

That One Korean Superstore Lands in Chicago

There are grocery stores, and then there are Korean superstores. The latter is filled with endless arrays of international delicacies, plus kiosks serving Hawaiian-style katsu and poke bowls. It goes by the name of H Mart, of course, and there's finally one in Chicago-proper. So... hope you like Korean superstores.

Now open, H Mart, 711 W Jackson Blvd, 312-966-4666

CHAMPAGNE ROOM

An Après-Ski Party This Way Comes

This party has Champagne gummy bears. Now that that's out of the way, let's elaborate on the Champagne Powder party at Joy District. It's an Après-ski soirée that will be filled with ice luges, shot skis and also some less shitshow-y vessels. And we mentioned the gratis Champagne gummy bears, right? Good.

Saturday
Beer and Sandwiches: A Love Story
TWO'S COMPANY

Beer and Sandwiches: A Love Story

The Ruin Daily's buffalo cauliflower sandwich is about to meet Hopewell's Thank Me Later IPA. That match made in heaven/Logan Square will be available for one day only when the sandwich shop pops up inside the taproom. There's your Saturday, basically.

Sunday
Puppy Bowl. Super Bowl. Both.
DOG DAYS

Puppy Bowl. Super Bowl. Both.

Super Bowl Sunday is almost here, which means one thing: puppies. Watch Chicago's very own Stripe compete in the Puppy Bowl while you drink drinks at Park & Field and raise money for his adoption center. Oh, and they'll also have a bottomless buffalo chicken nugget-filled buffet if you'd rather watch some actual football.

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.
