The French Market Welcomes Some Italian Sandwiches

The cure for this week's potential lackluster lunch comes courtesy of the French Market, where they've welcomed two new vendors. So, will it be al pastor-inspired ceviche at Tiger Ceviche or a spicy soppressata sandwich from Firenze? You can just tell us what you did later.

This Irish Breakfast Will Be Here When You Need It

At some point this weekend, you might need an Irish breakfast cooked by an actual Irish person. That's sausage, bacon, white and black puddings, tomatoes, mushrooms and baked beans served all day Friday through Sunday at DropShot Coffee & Snack Bar thanks to chef Sarah Jordan. AKA, certified Irish person.

Sipping-Wine-on-the-River Season Is Back

While the masses huddle onto every bridge and sidewalk to watch the dying of the Chicago River, you can be sipping rosé or chocolate porter at City Winery's Riverwalk outpost. It reopens for the season on St Patrick's Day, so you should probably show your support by drinking some wine.

March Madness With a Side of Breakfast Burgers

There are a million places you could watch March Madness. Yes, a million. But there's only one where you can watch it on exactly 10 TVs with an order of bananas foster French toast or a breakfast burger topped with housemade sausage gravy while sipping on a Zone Negroni. That place is the Moonlighter, by the way.

Sat-Sun, 11am (10am during March Madness), The Moonlighter, 3204 W Armitage Ave, 773-360-8896

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.
