What to Eat This Week: Oyster Hour, Mondays at County, Greek Wine Dinner, and Moscow Mules

Oyster Hour at Acre

Nothing puts the "happy" in happy hour quite like bivalves. Through March, Acre hosts daily oyster hours that are actually several hours each. For a scant $1.25 a pop, oysters come in a variety of options, featuring both East Coast and West Coast offerings. Oyster hour takes place on weekdays from 5:00 p.m. until midnight and on weekends from 3:00 p.m. until midnight. Slurp and get happy.

A New Day to Eat at County

Mondays just got a lot less sucky, thanks to the arrival of Monday hours at County and the onset of fried chicken specials. The Taylor Street barbeque haunt is now open seven days a week, so you're never too far from brisket, ribs, and other meaty delicacies. Plus, County is introducing a new Monday special: fried chicken wings with fries for $9. The specially seasoned and breaded wings come with a honey-Sriracha sauce, ideally supplemented with a shot of Old Heaven Hill and a Lone Star beer for $5.

Acropolis Now Book Dinner

Wine, food, and literature converge for a special evening at Taxim on Monday, February 10. In honor of Vintage Attraction, a semi-autobiographical novel by Charles Blackstone on the allure of Greece and his romance with now-wife Alpana Singh, Taxim will present a three-course wine dinner showcasing Greece in all its romantic glory. Blackstone will be in attendance to read from his book, describing Grecian love as diners tuck into Grecian food. The evening begins with a reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. The cost to attend is $65 and includes an autographed copy of the book. Reservations can be made by calling 773-252-1558.

Toast to Sochi With Crafthouse Moscow Mule

If you enjoy Russian-inspired cocktails but hate Russian bigotry, Crafthouse Moscow Mules are the perfect way to toast the Winter Olympics! An apropos option from Charles Joly's (The Aviary) venerable line of bottled cocktails, the Crafthouse Moscow Mule features small-batch vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, and cane sugar, all natural and all refreshing. Pick up a bottle at a boozy beverage outlet near you, pour over ice, garnish with a lime, and sip with vigor.
