Here are the winners, you lucky dogs:
Really wish we had more to go around…but keep at it. The giveaways are a-plenty around here.
Readers, oh readers.
We’ve got some intel for you, but we have to be quick about it. Here’s the downlow: There’s a major new restaurant opening Chicago. It’s called Nellcôte, and it’s based on the French villa of the same name that the Rolling Stones leased for a summer in 1971. They recorded “Exile on Main St.” in the basement.
The idea behind this restaurant has got some heft: On a nightly basis they intend to recreate the infamous house party the Stones threw for “a veritable checklist of rock ‘n’ royalty including artists, style icons, deviants, socialites and creative misfits.”
If you haven’t heard about this operation already, you will soon.
The thing is, it’s not open yet. We can get you in. Word has it, Jared Van Camp and the boys are throwing a special preview on Tuesday. Here’s what we know:
Evening of Exile
Special Nellcôte Preview
833 W. Randloph St.
Chicago, IL 60607
Fare: Trays from the executive menu. Cocktails. Wine.
Date: Tuesday, February 28
Time: 6 – 8 p.m.
All you have to do is scuba dive up the Chicago River, find a way through the underwater tunnels, unzip your wet suit, brush off the tux you had on the whole time, and enjoy the party. Alright, alright it’s way simpler than that.
We’ve got a total of eight (8) tickets, and we’d love it if you’d come party with us.
You can get ‘em by following us on Twitter and liking us on Facebook. Then do one of the following:
- Comment on this blog post
- Post on our Facebook page
- Squawk at us on Twitter (don’t forget to mention @nellcote833!)
The lucky ones will be chosen at random. This is open to everyone. But please, only throw your hat in the ring if you will be in Chicago on Feb. 28. That’s Tuesday.
Hop to it! And for heavens’ sake, dress nice.
