The Weekender

Free Jay-Z, Endless Brunch, $5 Truffles

The weekend has cast you as the hero.

Friday
1 New Perk
PERKS

1 New Perk

On the off chance you've got a few female acquaintances in need of gifting that incidentally benefits you, we used our massive influence in the world of undergarments to get you a whopping 40 percent off the lingerie you know as La Perla (not to mention the free shirt you'll get from the men's line—don't worry: it doesn't lift or separate).

Friday
Shaved Truffles at Sweet & Savories
WHITE PARTY

Shaved Truffles at Sweet & Savories

Splurge on your pre–Labor Day white at this Lincoln Park retreat for the serious foodie—they're expecting a shipment of luxurious white truffles and (for a small fee) will shave it directly onto foie hamburgers, butter-poached lobster, truffle mac 'n' cheese or anything else you want. (Well, almost anything else you want.)

Starting September 4, 1534 W. Fullerton Ave (near Ashland), 773-281-6778

UD Hookup: Get $5 shavings of truffles on your risotto when you mention UrbanDaddy, Friday through Sunday.

Saturday
Sheffield's Barbecue Deal
A GOOD RIBBING

Sheffield's Barbecue Deal

The Wrigleyville smokehouse makes weekend barbecue plans easier with this four-person feast: two entire baby backs, heaps of potato salad, mounds of coleslaw, tons of baked beans, four slices of cornbread and one whole smoked chicken…but the post-meal nap is your responsibility.

$40, place orders 24hr before pickup September 5-7, Sheffield's, 3258 N. Sheffield Ave, 773-281-4989

$5 Pizza at Quartino
ROMAN HOLIDAY

$5 Pizza at Quartino

While you bask in the afternoon sun on this last Saturday of summer with a carafe of hearty vino at your side, Quartino wants to make sure you have some sustenance. They will be offering half-off their signature margherita pizza from their stone oven. We know you hate to drink alone.

11am-2pm, September 5, Quartino, 626 N. State St, 312-698-5000

Sunday
$10 Endless Brunch at Rockwood Place
BISCUITS & GRAVY

$10 Endless Brunch at Rockwood Place

New brunches are always worth investigating. But when they include an all-you-can-eat assortment of everything from buffalo wings and sloppy Joes to biscuits and gravy and ham-and-cheese eggs, as they do at this week-old urban honky-tonk, plan on performing extensive field research.

Saturdays and Sundays, 11am-3pm, Rockwood Place, 3466 N. Clark St, 773-880-2222

Tuesday
Jay-Z at House of Blues
SEE Z

Jay-Z at House of Blues

Next week, Oprah closes Michigan Avenue until Tuesday for a free show. Jay-Z happens to also be throwing a free concert that night. These are our kind of moguls. The Jay-Z tickets have been gone for weeks, but we saved you a couple pairs. Sorry—you're on your own for Her Royal O-ness.

Samsung AT&T Summer Krush with Jay-Z, September 8, 8pm, House of Blues, 329 N. Dearborn St, 312-923-2000

UD HOOKUP: Oprah vs. Jay-Z: Tell us who the better mogul is and why, and we may just bestow a pair of tickets for Jay-Z's show upon you.
