About Town

Thursday, Jan. 21: Thursdays wouldn’t be Thursdays if they didn’t involve low-brow liquor consumption. If you need a break from Mark II, head down to Debonair Social Club for the Fly by Night PBR Reception. Performances include J2K of Flosstradamus, Bald E. 10-11 p.m.; 1575 N. Milwaukee Ave.; $5 cover; 18+. RSVP to [email protected] for PBR reception.

Friday, Jan. 22: Do some good for Haiti and your stomach at the newly opened DMK Burger Bar in Lakeview.’ DMK is a fancier Edzo’s, with toppings like olive tapenade and tzatziki and bevvies like craft beers and custom red wine blends. This week $2 from every burger purchase will go to the Red Cross relief fund for Haiti. 2954 N. Sheffield Ave.; ($9-$15).

Saturday, Jan. 23: ‘Get sauced’ at Wicker Park’s new upscale 6 Corners Sports Bar for yummy pub grub with dipping sauces like cheesy alfredo, cilantro-spiked ranch, wasabi ginger and honey barbeque. They boast 13 flat screens, making this the only venue on this perfect trifecta of hipster streets that my frat-guy friends would be caught dead in. And with deals like $5 for PBR can and a Jager shot and $2 well drinks you really can’t go wrong. 1950 W. North Ave.; no cover.

Sunday, Jan. 24: Dean Durkin does yoga? Get your downward-dog on at a yoga class taught by Professor Thomas Durkin, as part of NU Stands for Haiti. Bring your own mat if you have one. It’s for a good cause, so as Durkin says, ‘Don’t worry if you’re not all that bendy!’ 3 p.m.; Parkes Hall; $15 suggested donation.

Monday, Jan. 25: Ever since returning from a quarter in Madrid, I’ve been itching for a decent glass of sangria.’ The new Mez’eacute; Tapas Lounge might just fit the bill.’ This cozy, sexy lounge offers $5 glasses of sangria, $3 select import beers and $3 tapas all night. They have Spanish classics like Papas Bravas and Gambas Al Ajillo, but you can also choose from American, Caribbean and Asian munchies. 205 N. Peoria St.; no cover.

Tuesday, Jan. 26: For some classless good times, head to Uncle Fatty’s Rum Resort for the Winter Music Fest 2010, presented by I Love Cover Bands. Check out the weeklong festival on Tuesday for a gratis cocktail reception from 7-8 p.m. hosted by Absolut Vodka, and enjoy drink specials throughout the night. Taking the stage will be DJ Risky Bizness Hair Bangers Ball, and Black Betty.’ Doors open at 7pm; 2833 N. Sheffield Ave., $5 cover.

Wednesday, Jan. 27: Chi-city + movies + Karaoke = Chicago Movieoke at the Bucktown Pub. Choose one of 200 scenes from 150 movies (newest addition is The Big Lebowski) to act out in front of a projection screen.’ Embarrass yourself in front of friends and strangers alike. The Dude abides. 8:30 p.m.; 1658 W. Cortland St.
