Now that the links have thawed, spring is springing, and you can venture outside without a parka over your parka, Perks is bringing you an invite and $25 credit to McBirdie, an online golf shopping club launching in late March with golfing gear on sale for up to 70% off. Start daydreaming, people.
Things to do for March 11, 2010
All-Nude Radio, Lobster Brunch and Free Burgers
The weekend is your pot of gold.
Chicago Arts District Second Fridays
Irony, shock and free beer: you'll find all three in abundance as the gallerists of Pilsen unfurl their red carpets during this monthly art walk down South Halsted. The theme this month is "Blind Date: The Romance of Word and Image," so it's a good time to ask out that sexy font you've been flirting with.
Come for free cocktails, a little live rockabilly and, most importantly, the chance to upgrade your spring outerwear during the grand opening of Connect's new(ish) Lincoln Park location. The space had started as a little holiday pop-up shop, but the owners decided they liked it too much to leave. That, or they didn't want to pack.
The golden age of radio left a lot to the audience's imagination—maybe too much. The ladies who brought you literature in the buff, Naked Girls Reading, will now read old-timey radio scripts without clothes on during this performance. You'll never think of War of the Worlds the same way again.
Brunch in a Box at David Burke's
David Burke will be in town this weekend, so his namesake restaurant has pumped up his bento box version of brunch by adding lobster to your chilaquiles, cooking your brioche toast tableside and putting a little foie gras on the menu. Guess someone wants a raise.
Free Burgers at Socca
We usually only take it one weekend at a time. But we just got word that Socca is going to be giving out burgers on March 29 (not to mention offering 50% to 75% off select wine bottles), which means reservations are going to be gone in a snap...unless you know someone. You know, like us.
