A Partridge In A Pear Tree

Porkchop 941 W. Randolph St. 312-733-9333

DRINK

Porn and Chicken and The Trap House

Double Door 1572 N. Milwaukee Ave. 773-489-3160

As part of its traveling 12 Days of Porn and Chicken series, the crew from the no-holds-barred Evil Olive banger joins The Trap House party in the Door No. 3 space for a bash featuring $10 40-ounce King Cobra and whiskey shot combos and—you guessed it—free chicken.

DO

"Scrooge (A Christmas Carol)" Viewing

Delish Diner 2018 W. Division St. 773-276-5200

Remind yourself of the true meaning of the holidays as you take in the 1951 British adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale of the miser who learns to change his ways as you dine on comfort food options such as matzo ball soup ($3.50), a grilled reuben ($9.50) or a Delish Burger with cheddar, bacon and a fried egg ($8). 1 p.m. Restaurant hours: 8 a.m.-3 p.m. No cover.
