LOOP—Space is still available for a $65 five-course wine dinner prepared by chef Chris Macchia at the Florentine with Heritage Wine Cellars and Tommasi Winery. Call 312-660-8866 to reserve. [EaterWire]

VARIOUS LOCATIONS—From Oct. 22 to 27, all Aurelio's Pizza locations throughout Chicago, Indiana, Florida, Las Vegas and elsewhere, will donate a percentage of all pizza sales to Advocate Hope Children's Hospital. [EaterWire]

O'HARE—If you're traveling through the International Terminal Thursday through Sunday until the end of October, look for the Hendrick's Gin pop-up near the duty free shop. Stop by for a gin and tonic in a teacup while you sit in a barber chair and get a stick-on mustache applied by an old-timey barber. Why not, right?! [EaterWire]
