Lunch at a sexy Italian restaurant can lead to some interesting propositions…like, for instance, dinner. After six weeks of dazzling you in the afternoon, this new Streeterville gem now serves its venison ragu gnocchi and crab meat risotto for dinner. There's no telling where that will lead. We're guessing dessert.
Things to do for October 15, 2009
Mustaches, Free Oysters and Marge Simpson
The weekend is the hay in your hayride.
Complimentary Oysters at Goose Island
Shaw's annual oyster-eating street bacchanal, Royster With the Oyster, doesn't happen until next week, but you can start slurping early at Goose Island's preview party. Every time you order a beer, you'll get an order of oysters on the house. Because practice makes perfect.
Mustache & Cleavage Party
Consider this the Burt and Loni of breast cancer fund-raisers. Gentlemen are encouraged to sport facial hair (you've got 24 hours to concentrate on growing some), while ladies are encouraged to display ample décolletage. Well, we suppose you can concentrate on that, too.
Old Oak Tap's First Anniversary
Celebrate one year of outstanding burgers and craft brews with…more outstanding burgers and craft brews. The West Town gastropub offers its house burger (sweet onion jam, Vermont sharp, special sauce) with a pint of Bell's Octoberfest for just $10. Consider it the frothy icing on the birthday cake.
