May Your Game 7 Be Full of Chicago-Style Hot Dog Burritos
And Your Weekend Be Full of Chocolate Churro Beer and Paul McGee’s Rum
By Sam Eichner

The weekend can keep a secret if you can.



            Six Bottles of Argentina’s Finest Malbec: Yours

It’s no secret that Argentina bears some of the most delicious Malbec in the world. And this bottle with notes of blackberry,
raspberry and violet is no exception. So you should be excited to hear that we have them by the half dozen.
We presume you’re losing your mind somewhere out there.


            The Only Thing Crazier Than a Game 7 Is...

Crazy time in Chicago. The election’s the election. Game 7’s happening. And something called Burrito Lab
has usurped the kitchen at Surf, producing Hawaiian-y pork shoulder burritos, vegan burritos with hemp
hearts and, for a limited time, Chicago-style hot dog burritos. So, yeah, they’re flying that W pretty
fucking hard.


            The Moral of This Story Is Most Definitely Rum

Renowned tiki drink enthusiast Paul McGee collaborated on an overproof rum called Plantation O.F.T.D., and
it’s finally available in Chicago. So tonight, he’s throwing a little launch party at Lost Lake with

            You Need a New Fall Suit. These People Have Those.

full line of footwear and dapper Italian-made things from their newest collection. We assume you’re one of
those persons.



            Chocolate Churro Porters and a Two-Item Food Menu

A few awesomely funky things about Moody Tongue’s new tasting room.
1) The chocolate churro porter, the bourbon-barrel-aged barleywine and the eight other beers on tap.
2) The bottom of this menu, which includes just one salty and one sweet item.
3) The feeling you get when you put 1 and 2 together.



            Caviar Mac and Cheese Plays a Part in This

At Saturday’s Mac and Cheese Fest, the city’s finest chefs are making you the eponymous American dish
with everything from Wagyu beef to caviar. Then, at Sunday’s first-ever Strange Foods Chicago Festival,
you’re sampling pig feet pozole, Croatian sausages and pho shooters. Should be an interesting weekend.

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.
