Flannel usually invokes Paul Bunyan-y visions of chopping trees and such. But the sturdy-as-it-is-soft cotton weave can be used for so much more. That more: button-ups that you can wear to the office, the off-site and the weekend brunch. Especially these from the flannel whisperers at Casavva that we've got for a steal.
Things to do for June 06, 2018
Ice Cream on a Roof, Pork Belly at the Cubs Game and Picnics Everywhere
Yep, That Kind of WeekendBy Pearl Plotkin
Meet Your New Gold Coast Gin-and-Oyster Connection
Juniper Spirits & Oysters is a new Gold Coast boîte in the recently opened Claridge House hotel serving seafood-centric deliciousness like their Chicago-style oyster roll and smoked trout flatbread alongside cocktails named for famous Chicagoans. Which is just a long way of saying… good place.
Let's All Go Eat Some Charcuterie on the Grass
Picnics in the park are magical. Unless you have to pack your own picnic. Enter Fairmont Chicago and their chef-made Picnic Package complete with wine, charcuterie, baguettes and more. You can even get one with Champagne and tea sandwiches if you're fancy like that.
DIY Ice Cream Sundaes on a Roof
Good news. You're going to the tri-level rooftop of LondonHouse Chicago to eat a bunch of ice cream sundaes. Better news: you'll be creating your own with flavors like Tahitian vanilla frozen yogurt, double fudge caramel brownies, mint sprinkles and/or green tea whipped cream. And. Definitely and.
Wrigley Field, Meet Stephanie Izard
If you usually go to Cubs games for the hot dogs and nuts, stop that. Stop it right now. Because this weekend's offering of the Wrigley Field Chef Series involves Stephanie Izard's menu of game-day delights like pork tacos, waffle fries with crispy pork belly and creole chicken sandwiches. Seriously, stop it.
There's Even Steak in Your Bloody Marys
With Sunday comes brunch. With this Sunday comes brunch at Prime & Provisions, because that's a thing now. French toast. Chef-attended carving stations with prime rib and maple glazed ham on the bone. A fully loaded raw bar with oysters and crab. Brunchy cocktails. All there. Hey, perhaps you should be, too.
What Else Is New
The World's Greatest Father's Day Gift Guide
It's right here. And it includes a lot of meat, beer and handsome timepieces. Somewhat related: you can now buy Steve McQueen's personal bomber jacket. Also, frozen Negronis. We thought you should know a good recipe for those.
