Fried Chicken Up Front, Whiskey in the Back. It's Time to Meet Drawl.
And Wrigley Field Welcomes Three Delicious New NeighborsBy Sarah Freeman
This Secret Whiskey Room Isn't Secret Anymore
Lincoln Park's newest restaurant, Drawl, has a secret. Past the palm frond wallpaper and seersucker booths, where people are enjoying plates of Johnny cakes and fried chicken, there's a whiskey room. And in that whiskey room, Tasso-spiked jerky and presumably deep conversations are happening. And whiskey. Whiskey's also happening.
West Town Bakery + Bourbon Milkshakes = This
You look like you could use a bourbon red velvet milkshake. Go ahead, have one at West Town Bakery & Tap, where cake pops meet cold brew coffee and even colder beer. It's the boozy new offshoot of the popular West Town Bakery and is also connected to the lobby of Hotel Zachary. You know Zachary.
Big Star Wrigleyville Is Here. Jeni's Wrigleyville Is Here. Everybody's Here.
The Wrigleyville transformation continues with two more familiar faces. The first is Big Star's second stand-alone location, a 9,000-square-foot whiskey-and-al-pastor slinging new restaurant. For dessert, it's popcorn and peanut ice cream at Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams' fifth Chicago shop. Thank you, Wrigleyville. Thank you.

Juleps, Pimento Cheese Sandwiches and the Masters at the J. Parker
It's Master's time, and you're about to watch in style and in the company of mint juleps, pimento cheese sandwiches and peach cobbler at the J. Parker's watch party with putting greens galore. BYO green jacket.
What Else Is New
Should You Bet on Tiger Woods to Win The Masters?
We answered that question, and several others, in this hurried person's gambling guide to the tournament. We also had some lingering questions about "What It's Like to Go Through Life as a Really Beautiful Women." And here the most dangerous dive sites in the world. Yes, that's a challenge (but, like, be careful).
