And now the latest from Racked Chicago, covering everything you need to know about the city's shopping, style, and retail from the sidewalks up.


EVERYWHERE - Throughout the week we've been hunting down shops with gift-y items for those people who seek certain things - Star Trek pizza cutters, snake skin iPad covers, a watch with no face, tasteful sex toys and cashmere sweaters. No matter the person you're shopping for last minute you're bound to find the best gift in our series of Holiday Gift Guides.

EVERYWHERE - After perusing our gift guides you're still drawing a blank about what to get for someone? Chicago-based GiftBar is a one-stop-shop for all gift cards for everything locally owned. Think Sofia, Charles Ifergan, Cerato, Haberdash, Lori's Shoes, City Soles and everywhere else. The brilliant thing here is that you can email or text the gift card - perfect for ultra last-minute shoppers.

EVERYWHERE - You know we'll be out shopping the day after Christmas, looking for the steals and deals. Two places you'll find us checking out are Target where there's extra perks for using your gift card and Room & Board who's serving coffee and pastries.

GOLD COAST - If you're already planning what to wear on New Year's Eve but don't know where to go yet, Akira has partnered with Chicago Scene for a massive throwdown at The Drake Hotel. 45 Open Bars... need we say more?
