WICKER PARK—Tonight, the Fifty/50 kicks off two nights of showing Michael Jordan's greatest playoff moments on 18 flatscreens around the bar. Drop in by 8 p.m. to catch the 1986 Eastern Conference first round game against the Celtics followed by game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals versus Utah. And $3 drink specials will run all night. Return Dec. 20 for two more games. [EaterWire]

ON TV—Tune in tonight to the CMT Artist of the Year Awards where Stephanie Izard makes an appearance at some point after preparing dinner for the likes of Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley and Lady Antebellum. The menu included coconut-braised short rib, butternut squash kim chee and a soup Swift apparently loved. [EaterWire]

FULTON MARKETThe Aviary is closed tonight for the PDT Cocktail Book event and will be closed for part of the night Wednesday for a private party. The lounge will re-open Wednesday night at 10 p.m. for regular service. [EaterWire]

LINCOLN PARKFloriole Cafe & Bakery now has Buche de Noel in three different flavors (vanilla vanilla, chocolate chestnut and chocolate coffee), but get there fast because they apparently fly off the shelves. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN—Going to the CSO to hear Welcome Yule this Saturday? If so, go early for a special lunch at Rhapsody (it's normally closed). If you're bringing the kids, they'll have a special menu and cookie decorating. [EaterWire]
