Do This Sale for America

Winter is almost behind us, and you're excited. Not only because of the inevitable return of the sun, but because of the equally inevitable end-of-season sale at Americana-inspired outfitter Independence, which means 40% off deerskin gloves, denim jackets and khaki chinos. America.

In case you missed it, Big Shoulders continues its caffeinated conquering of Chicago with its fourth shop, now open in the Gold Coast. Head .4 miles north and find yourself at the fifth Chicago location of La Colombe, where draft lattes and La Boulangerie croissants abound. In conclusion: caffeine.

One Night of Painkillers at Revival Food Hall

This Friday will be the first one of March. Which is important because that's when the First Friday pop-up bar series kicks off at Revival Food Hall with guest bartenders from Three Dots and a Dash. The team will be decked out in tropical shirts and shaking up Painkillers and Mai Tais. You will presumably be drinking them.

Bridgeport's New Brewery Is Here, and It's a Stunner

Marz Community Brewing's mural-covered taproom has arrived. For your drinking pleasure, pull up a stool to the oval-shaped bar and dig into a tandoori chicken lavash while sipping on the Rooibos tea-infused brew known as Jungle Boogie. That was your cue to rejoice.

Just a Perfectly Nordic Brunch

Soft omelettes with black truffles, yogurt-roasted sunchokes and smoked whitefish salad on rye bread. That's just how chefs David and Anna Posey do it at Elske. Or, how they will be doing it at the Elske brunch pop-up at Avec. This will never happen again, though, so you should probably be there.

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.
