A Proper David Bowie Tribute

David Bowie's guitarist, David Bowie's pianist and David Bowie's producer are all assembling under one roof to celebrate the music icon's legacy. They, of course, will be playing all of his greatest hits, from Space Oddity to Blackstar. Arguably the most important part is that you're invited.

For Your Next Trick, Drinking in a Magic-Themed Lounge

Step inside the new home of all things magical in Chicago. Yes, it's the Chicago Magic Lounge, which has all the staged performances you would expect from such a place, plus a handsome "speakeasy" with velvet banquettes and Art Deco accents where you can watch your bartender do parlor tricks while you sip mezcal. Oh, magic.

QUITE THE PAIR

You Need More Fried Chicken and Champagne in Your Life

Champagne and fried chicken. It's a perfect, yet somewhat neglected pairing. Show your appreciation for the art of eating buttermilk fried chicken, biscuits and coleslaw while sipping on bubbly every Sunday at Somerset. Or on any other day, really, just not there.

Sundays, while supplies last, $23, Somerset, 1112 N State St, 312-586-2150

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.
