FROM PERKS

            The Best Damn Carry-On You’ll Ever Carry On

Lessons learned from your holiday travels: 1) Limit two eggnogs per grandmother. 2) It’s time to get a new
suitcase. Like this perfectly sized, zipperless carry-on. It opens via roll-top, glides easily on 360-degree
wheels and has a battery with two USB ports, plus GPS so your bag never disappears unannounced. Unlike
Grandma.

FIELD REPORT

            Just Don’t Call It a “Sports Bar”

Park & Field is a handsome lounge in Logan Square with chesterfield tables and turn-of-the-century
sporting memorabilia where you can watch the game, eat short rib pot pie and drink good beer. So if you
thought Logan Square was all cocktail bars and dives, well… take that?

            This Weekend, We Dance for George Michael

There are few better ways to honor the late, great George Michael than by corralling some friends and making
for Elbo Room’s George Michael music video dance party this Saturday. Actually, no better ways.

Sunday

BAH NONE

            Your First Best New Brunch of 2017

You made a New Year’s resolution to enjoy more great brunches in 2017. Therefore, you should go to Oyster
Bah this weekend. Their new one’s got everything from fried-oyster benedicts to cereal-crusted french
toast to jumbo-shrimp-laden Bloody Marys. Now, on to those other resolutions…

STAR WARS

            Truffle Popcorn, Champagne and the Golden Globes

On Sunday, the brightest stars in Hollywood will convene for the Golden Globes to receive awards and drink
copious amounts of champagne. Meanwhile, you’ll be watching at Carbon Arc at the Davis Theater, eating
truffle popcorn and drinking copious amounts of champagne yourself. Should be a pretty good night for all
parties.

Sam Eichner likes literature, reality television and his twin cats equally. He has consistently been told he needs a shave since he started growing facial hair.
