The Weekender

Burgers, Haircuts and a Toast to Swayze

The weekend is the last stop on your gravy train.

Friday
Two-for-One Halo Gift Cards
THE BOYS ARE BACK

Two-for-One Halo Gift Cards

Amazing day-after-Thanksgiving sales are really no excuse for people to act uncivilized—let alone look uncivilized. So when you buy one $50 gift card from the men's spa, you get another free—and you won't even have to elbow an old lady to get one. Probably.

11am-7pm, Nov 27, all Halo locations, including 1655 N. Damen, 773-342-4256

Patrick Swayze Flights at Tasting Room
DIRTY DRINKING

Patrick Swayze Flights at Tasting Room

We're not sure what's behind this cozy wine bar's tribute to the star of Skatetown, U.S.A., but we think you'll like it. Among the eight themed wine flights is the To Wong Foo, with a glass of Dom leading the pack—sort of like a champagne version of Ponyboy.

SNEAKERS

Puma Flagship Opens

Block 37—that long-awaited Loop mega-shopping complex—throws open its doors and among the early residents is this multilevel shoe emporium, featuring Alexander McQueen and Mihara Yasuhiro sneakers—and 30 percent off outerwear on opening day.

8am, Nov 27, Puma Store, 108 N. State St, 312-263-9006

Jack's on Halsted Is Revamped
JACK'S BACK

Jack's on Halsted Is Revamped

Monica Lewinsky. IPOs. Screeching modems. We love the '90s as much as anyone—but that martini bar thing is played out. So after 11 years, Jack's on Halsted streamlined the decor and simplified the menu, now offering a dozen kinds of hamburgers—including a pulled-pork and jalapeño number that's very 2010.
