Manhattan Making Contest

Shake up your week with a little Manhattan making contest at the Virgin Hotels’ second-floor Commons Club on February 22. From 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., local mixologists will convene to see who can make the best Woodford Reserve Manhattan. Attendees get to watch the action and sample the wares. What’s even cooler is guests also get to personalize their own Woodford Reserve bottle with an engraver. Tickets to attend are $15, and pre-ordered engraved bottles are $45.

Lunch at RPM Steak

There’s a new power lunch in town, and it can be found at RPM Steak. The River North steakhouse just launched its new “executive lunch,” which is available Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. It’s a three-course prix fixe for $26, with items like coal-roasted halibut, king crab bisque, and short rib steak.



“Breaking the Wheel” at Tesori

Feast your eyes on an 80-pound wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and then dig in at Tesori. The Loop mainstay is hosting a very special cheese and wine tasting event called “Breaking the Wheel” on February 23 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Guests will get to sip a variety of wines from Maso Canali and DaVinci while watching chef Danny Sweis break into the massive cheese well. Bask in the aroma and sample the flavor in a whole new way. The cost is $25 per person.
