Do This For January 11

  • This year's version of Bell's Hopslam, which is, in our opinion, the best beer the Kalamazoo brewery has introduced to Chicago since they returned to the market last year, receives an official release party at Sheffield's from 7-10 p.m. at the Beer School bar. They'll also be tapping a firkin of Expedition Stout. (3258 N. Sheffield, 773-281-4989)
  • ENO at the Intercontinental Hotel (505 N. Michigan, 312-321-8738) will look at the wines of Washington this evening at 7 p.m. Cheeses and light noshes will also be served with each of the four wines being poured. Cost is $25.
  • The Chopping Block's Lincoln Square location (4747 N. Lincoln, 773-472-6700) will conduct a "Realistic Resolutions" cooking class starting at 7 p.m. Learn how to make easy and healthy entrees that you can feel good about eating, like steamed bass with black bean ginger glaze and sauteed baby bok choy; maple orange glazed chicken breasts with oven-roasted sweet potatoes; eggplant, tomato and chickpea stew with saffron-infused couscous; spiced pork chops with caramelized onion and cherry relish. Cost is $40.
