Weekend Planner: Post-Holiday Shopping and Pre-New Year's Champagne

Last Call
Going cold turkey on holiday spirit can be dangerous. Ease out of the festivities with one last glass of eggnog at The Barrelhouse Flat, on special this week for $7. (773-857-0421).

More Shopping
Because we cannot get enough holiday shopping, or because we have some Christmas cash burning a hole in our pocket, there are still a few food specials going on until Saturday at the French Market, including discounted meat and seafood. (312-575-0306).

Backstage Access
Get a sneak peek at what goes on in the kitchen and behind the counters of some of Wicker Park’s finest purveyors. Flight Chicago will stop at The Butcher & Larder, Frontier, Carriage House and Prasino during a three-hour, food-and-drink-filled tour. Tickets cost $145.

Japonais is helping New Year’s Eve revelers warm up for the big night with a special all weekend. A glass of Moet Champagne and three East or West coast oysters, accompanied by white peach and yuzu “pearl” and pear mignonette is available for $20.13. (312-822-9600).
