Deal(s) of the day . . .
OD’d on all that St. Pat’s Day partying over the weekend, but you’re still looking to hang tonight?
You’ll want to check out these events, which will certainly have no green on the scene:
Head to Martini Park (151 W. Erie St., 312-640-0577), as they launch their new nightly happy hour special. Monday through Saturday, between 5-8pm, you can get $3 and $5 menu items like Kobe beef sliders, Thai-style calamari, filet mignon sauté skewers and spinach artichoke dip.
Get ready for Masters At Work mega deejay/producer Louie Vega, who spins at Boom Boom Room at Green Dolphin Street (2200 N. Ashland Ave., 773-395-0066). One of my all-time favorite music men (remember Nuyorican Soul?!), Vega headlines the party with his mesmerizing blend of soul, funk, house and Latin mixes. Tonight’s lineup also includes resident deejays Diz, Michael Serafina, Just Joey and Uncle Milty. $3 Bud products; $5 Stoli cocktails. $10. 10pm-4am.
Tickets are still available for the third-annual World Festival, hosted by Common Threads. "Top Chef" host Padma Lakshmi is the honorary chair for the event, which includes high-profile local and national chefs. Look out for the likes of David Burke, Jimmy Bannos, Marcus Samuelsson, Gale Gand and Rocco DiSpirito to be serving their specialties. Cocktails, bubbly, live music and more included. 6-9pm at the Museum of Contemporary Art (220 E. Chicago Ave.). John Legend performs at the VIP after-party. Call 312-752-2674 for tickets.
Chill out with friends or a sig other at Feast (1616 N. Damen Ave., 773-772-7100) in Bucktown with this deal: Buy an entrée and get half off on any bottle of wine—or BYOB with your favorite vino.
