It's hard to find good gloves. Especially handcrafted, touchscreen-friendly ones made from things like lamb leather and cashmere. Especially-especially these ones from Quill & Tine, artisan crafters of rather stunning, rather phone-friendly gloves that you'll need to get you through winter. Which is too bad (for anyone not with Perks).
Things to do for January 31, 2018
This Chocolate Pie is Covered in Pretzels and Potato Chips
Just in Time for the Super BowlBy Sarah Freeman
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.
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.
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.
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
This Airbnb Is a World-Class Submarine in the Bahamas
And it's only available to a select, deserving few. Speaking of deserving... we hereby present you with the world's smartest golf ball, which tracks its own velocity, spin speed and more technical things. Finally: care to try this tequila that's been aged in Napa Chardonnay barrels?
