If you are a fan of the fashionably fierce fab four from Sex and the City, then seeing the new movie sequel can buy you more then just a show. For this weekend only (June 3 – 6), a movie ticket stub from Sex and the City 2 will get you a hefty discount (20%!) at trendy Italian spot Tocco (1266 N Milwaukee Ave). Not only is Tocco a great place to sip cocktails and enjoy dinner with your best buds, but also it is also vegetarian friendly.
Tocco offers several pizzas featuring fresh cheeses and vegetables. Don’t miss out on the “casereccia,” a white pizza with mozzarella, gorgonzola, fresh tomatoes, and mushrooms. Or, go for a meat-free calzone, lentil or bean and vegetables soup, or one of their many salads (“insalata Tocco” boasts mixed greens topped with capers, almonds, grilled zucchini, and green olives). Vegetarian pasta entrees include butternut squash and ricotta ravioli, homemade pasta with fresh tomatoes and basil, spaghetti with crushed pepper and garlic aoli, and spinach tortellini sautéed with black truffles. With a menu this fabulous planning a “girl’s night out” is a given; plus, cosmos will be available for only $5.
