A Hip(po) Chicago Weekend – January 21,22,23

A Hip(po) Chicago WeekendYou know what I like?  Besides WARM WEATHER of course?  Food.  I really really like food.  It makes me very happy.  Plus it usually warms me up some.  In the spirit of eating, gorging, and overindulging, I am going to focus this Chicago Weekend on great foodie things to do.  Grab your fork and bib and let’s go!

(1)   Chicago Originals Restaurant Week

This is my favorite week of the year.  You can check out the website above and enjoy yourself some delicious full course meals for $29.11 — a slightly obscure price, yes, but always worth it.  Trattoria Roma, Le Titi de Paris and Co-Si-Na Grill are just some of the restaurants you can pick from!

(2)   Chilifest

What does Chicken Enchilada and Three Wild Hogs mean to you?  You mean chili isn’t the first thing that came to your mind?  Both Rockit locations are hosting their 3rd annual chilifest, which is just in time for DA BEARS!  Head on over and stuff yourself silly with the best chili around — at the very least it boasts a unique use of meat.

Rockit Bar and Grill, 22 West Hubbard or 3700 N. Clark

(3)   $20.11 Prix-fixe Lunch and Dinner

Feeling fancy?  Enjoy the color red?  Visit Red Light and test out their 2011 menu for only $20.11 —  their website has more details, but sounds pretty enticing to me!  Who doesn’t like food at a reasonable, rememberable price?

Red Light, 820 W. Randolph

(4)   B-E-A-R-S

‘Nuff said.  Super-bowl shuffle on over to your favorite local bar, eat your favorite local wings and cheer on your favorite local team.  If you just said Packers, I hope you realize that somewhere a kitten has fallen down dead.  That’s right.  Watch your mouth – you will have blood on your hands otherwise.

Be hip(po)!  Have fun!  GO BEARS!  But most importantly, have a fun and safe weekend!
