  • LUSH Wine & Spirits' West Town location is now open at 1412 W. Chicago Ave.
  • Saturday: If Anthony's photo essay of Toni Roberts's dessert plating didn't have you wanting to go to C-House, maybe their $25 High C Holiday brunch will. This prix fixe brunch menu includes your choice of two cocktails between "The Rudolph" (vodka or tequila, tomato juice, fresh horseradish, lemon juice and tobasco); "From the North" (a soothing mix of red wine, vodka, port, cloves, orange zest, accompanied with cinnamon sticks); "Winter Wonderland" (bourbon, heavy cream, egg whites, and nutmeg); "The Poinsettia" (sparkling wine, cointreau, and cranberry juice). All mimosas, bloody marys and sparkling wines are being sold for $5. (Affinia Chicago Hotel, 166 E. Superior, 10:30 a.m. - 3 p.m., Reservations recommended).
  • Sunday: mado's beef dinner is almost sold out. The next best dinner special is Uncommon Ground's "dinner and a movie night." This three-course meal also includes a screening of the movie Fresh, featuring Michael Pollan, Will Allen, Joel Salatiri and David Ball. (1401 W. Devon, 773-465-9801, 6:30 p.m., $30)
