Lazy Tiger Revives Corpse Reviver Pop-up
They’re baaack! After a year off, the owners of Lazy Tiger in the Central West End have resuscitated the Corpse Reviver pop-up bar, this time with a special “haunted circus” theme. From October 6–30, Lazy Tiger will resemble a ghoulish circus, complete with pink and white draping, a themed cocktail menu, custom-made glassware, an appropriate playlist from DJ Makossa, popcorn, and so-called “clown scare performers.” This year’s cocktail list includes Ghost Malone, Lust for the Juggler, Lion Faced Man-hattan, Cereal Killer (made with Fruit Loops), and—wait for it—Creep in the Box. “Since we weren’t able to do Corpse Reviver in person last year, we had an extra year to get super creative with the cocktails,” says co-owner Tim Wiggins, who, coincidentally, was born on Halloween. Reservations can be made via Resy for up to six guests for a 60-minute booking, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 5 p.m. to midnight. 210 N. Euclid, 314-925-8888.

Due to the shortage of restaurant staffers, many restaurants across the country are being forced to reduce their days and hours of operation. The owners of Winslow’s Table Market & Bakery have announced that dinner service will be discontinued after this Saturday, September 18, but remind us that are still several ways to experience the restaurant’s dynamic, farm-fresh fare. Beginning September 22, breakfast and lunch will be served Wednesday through Sunday from 8 a.m.–3 p.m., with prepared foods and market goods available until 6 p.m. (except on Sundays). Winslow’s famous smashed burger will be sold from 4–6 p.m. on Thursdays for dine-in or take out. Winslow’s will continue to sell frozen sourdough pizzas, and slices will now be available during the day. The box lunch and brunch catering menus can be viewed online, and preordering for holiday meals will begin soon; keep tabs on Winslow’s website or sign up for its newsletter for the latest. 7213 Delmar, 314-725-7559.
Bottle Banging

Aaeee! There it goes again! Another empty liquor bottle getting hurled into a trash can by a bartender from about 6 feet away, then exploding like a glass grenade, with not even enough warning for us to yell, “Incoming!” We’re lucky that we weren’t taking a sip of our martini, or we might have unwittingly sprayed the culprit. Nerves shattered, we try to anticipate the next underhanded toss, accompanied by a decibel level not unlike a pro bowler hurling a hard strike. The difference? You know when the pins will be flying.
