What to Eat and Drink in Chicago This Week

Bacon, peach brandy, and zero-calorie doughnuts (sort of) are all on the agenda.

Monday, March 30

The latest installment in the ongoing Noodle Night series at Arami (1829 W. Chicago Ave., West Town, 312-243-1535) is a family reunion–chef Fred Despres will be joining forces with Shin Matsuda of the spot’s sibling restaurant, Ani, for a collaborative collection of à la carte specials, including Matsuda’s wasabi chicken ramen.

Tuesday, March 31

Baconfest, that annual bacchanalia of all things bacon, is fast approaching. Start prepping your body for an invasion of pork fat at the organizers’ Bacon Month Kickoff Party (because apparently April is now Bacon Month) at Berkshire Room (15 E. Ohio St., River North), where the evening will include themed cocktails, snacks, and swag bags. Snag $30 tickets here.

Wednesday, April 1

Be on your guard—it’s April Fool’s Day, and that means, sadly, the rumor that Glazed and Infused (multiple locations, see goglazed.com) is proffering a zero-calorie doughnut is too good to be true. But, if you go to one of their outposts and try to order it today, you’ll instead be given a voucher for one complimentary vanilla bean glazed doughnut.

Friday, April 3

Say cheers to Rhine Hall Distillery’s (2010 W. Fulton St., West Town, 312-243-4313) anniversary with a cocktail party and tasting of their brand-new peach brandy. The festivities run from 6-10 p.m., and a $30 ticket (buy one here]) gets you two cocktails and eats for the celebration.

Sunday, April 5

It’s the beginning of the end for Mad Men, which means it’s the actual end of the premiere parties that have been taking place at the Logan Theatre (2646 N. Milwaukee Ave., Logan Square) to mark the start of each season. Before the show starts at 9 p.m., there’s a cocktail party that kicks off at 7:30—wear your best period-appropriate garb and pick up $20 advance tickets here.
