RIVER NORTH—Spice up your own mimosas and Bloody Marys with Mercadito's Brunch Bottles. Every Saturday between 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., mix up your own drinks with $55 bottles of vodka or $45 bottle of Champagne (you can upgrade for a fee) and get housemade mixers and various garnishes to craft your own cocktails.

STREETERVILLE—Buy a Miller Lite and you may get a free all-expenses-paid trip to the Super Bowl. Timothy O'Toole's Pub will choose one winner at a live raffle (you must be present) on Jan. 30. But, go in each sunday leading up to it and each time you buy a Miller Lite, your name is entered. Not a bad payoff.
DOWNTOWN—There's a new chef in town and his name is Evan Percoco. Cibo Matto has finally named a replacement for Todd Stein (now at the Florentine) and Percoco is ready to make some changes. He's making it more modern Italian and less fine dining. [EaterWire]
GOLD COAST—It'll be a bloody good Sunday at Chicago Cut Steakhouse. In January, for every brunch entree purchased, you'll receive a free Absolut Vodka bloody mary. [EaterWire]
