Travel season is upon us and we here at Perks think you deserve more...or actually, a lot less. So we're taking a round three-digit number off your flight. We're just good like that.
Things to do for May 22, 2009
$5 Burgers, Whole Hogs and a Cargo Pants Funeral
The weekend salutes you.
You read it here first: pockets are dead. So bring those old multi-pouched cargo shorts and pants to His Stuff to receive a cool discount off a more up-to-date pair from Hugo Boss, Rag & Bone and other less-pocketed designers. Then put your change in your sock.
So you've got a case of 'Hawks fever. There's no better place to join the bandwagon than this viewing party at the Wicker Park 'cue joint. Indulge in $3 house brews and a trio of sliders, which you can think of as a delicious hat trick.
The Drake is the setting for a competition where five top chefs (Graham Elliot Bowles, the Bristol's Chris Pandel) are given one pig to transform into as much deliciousness as possible. Before you serve as a hands-on judge, munch on pork rinds and sip wine, a frequently overlooked pairing.
If you're looking for an easier way to get your Memorial Day burgers than firing up the grill, you can't beat the deal starting today at this River North steakhouse. For one week only, the burgers made from 40-day-aged prime are just $5 during lunch. Doggy bag, anyone?
