Things to do for March 07, 2018
Grab a Cocktail Inside Emporium's Latest Pop-Up, Which Happens to Be a Giant Pink Dollhouse
Or Grab One Fireside in a Mountaintop LoungeBy Sarah Freeman
A Mighty New Coffee Shop From Team Sawada
In true Brendan Sodikoff fashion, the man behind Gilt Bar and Bavette's quietly opened a new coffee shop between the two last week. Sawada Matcha takes its cues from its West Loop sister with Military Lattes and Doughnut Vault donuts in a perfectly handsome space, plus a rainbow of French macarons. A rainbow, people.
A Toast to Frank Lloyd Wright
It's all things Prairie School as the team from the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired bar travels to nearby Low Res studio for a documentary screening of Frank Lloyd Wright: The Man Who Built America, along with cocktail-fueled discussions about him. That other man, barman Jim Meehan, will be there, too.
Your Comedic Alternative to March Madness
It's that magical time of year when you get to watch hours of college basketball. Or hey, maybe opt for hours of live comedy instead. It's March Sadness at Chicago Athletic Association hotel, featuring the likes of Odinaka Ezeokoli, who you may recognize from Netflix's Easy. Much funnier than basketball.
Emporium's Latest Pop-Up Is All About the GRLS
From the minds behind creative duo GRLS comes an oversized, flower-having Barbie Dream House of sorts. Yep. It's there, inside Emporium's latest pop-up, where you'll drink cocktails and attend parties benefiting various women's organizations throughout Chicago. So, the best kind of Barbie Dream House.
Your Last Chance to Après-Ski Is Here
You came, you saw, you slid down a mountain on carbon fiber planks. If not, your last chance to do that at Grand Geneva is this weekend, as ski season comes to a close there on Sunday. Then, toast your final run with a cocktail by the fire and some live music at the hilltop Leinenkugel's Lodge. Or maybe skip the skiing part.
