GET CARDED The risks of gambling often outweigh the rewards, but when it comes to trying a new restaurant, your taste buds may thank you for taking a chance. Each of the 52 playing cards in A la Card Chicago’s deck features profiles of different chef-driven restaurants. From Boka to Bon-Soirée, there’s an option for every neighborhood, cuisine and price point within the impressive roster. Simply present that restaurant’s card, and receive $10 off the bill. For 30 bucks, you get $520 worth of dining, and a dollar a deck goes to Common Threads, Art Smith’s charity aimed at educating children on nutrition and cultural diversity through cooking. Never has the phrase “pick a card, any card” sounded so delicious. $30. Visit alacardchicago.com to purchase or find retail locations.
