Have you seen the holiday movie "Bad Santa" starring Billy Bob Thornton? No, us either (we're more the "Elf" type), but you can still get in the naughty/nice spirit at Smoke Daddy's Good/Bad Santa holiday party on Tuesday, Dec. 23.
The Wicker Park barbecue restaurant will have two Santas at its soiree, doling out gifts based on the information you give them. If you've been spending your time doing charity work and paying your bills on time (or are just a good liar), "Good Santa" will reward you with candy canes and sweets. However, if you've been spending your time in bars, are in debt up to your eyeballs or work for AIG, you'll have beer, shots and condoms from "Bad Santa" to show for it. Seems like a no-brainer to us.
Food and drink specials ($3 draft beers, $2 spiced egg nog and half-price wings) will be offered, plus Christmas movies (like "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," "Christmas Vacation," "Elf" and, of course, "Bad Santa") will be shown all day. Live jazz and blues will start at 9PM. The party goes all day, from 11:30AM until 11PM. You just might walk in nice and leave naughty.
