Forget the hot stuff this Friday night as the Fire & Ice Patio at Vertigo Sky Lounge reopens for 2013. This is the city's one and only ice bar and winter patio and get this-there's flaming shots. The chilly lounge towers over River North with stunning views of the Loop, features fire pits and heatlamps and cloaks for a little extra warmth. This year, for the first time, the patio will be peppered with ice sculptures and have an ice sculpting demo as well as a non-shoppable selection of ice and baubles from the new K Amato Spring 2013 collection. RSVP requested.
