If you're drawn to the bad-boy—or bad-gal—type, this is the dinner party for you. Tonight, the Atwood Café will host "Get Ink'd: Five Course Dinner, Cocktail, and Tattoo Pairing" at 6:30pm.

Celebrating the 30th birthday of wunderkind chef Derek Simcik—who has no problem getting inky—the event will serve up a menu inspired by the colors and creativity of tattoo art. Spoiler alert: there will be lots of squid ink.

As of now, there are a few spots left for $85 a head, so act fast and call 312-368-1900 for a reservation. And if you're in the restaurant industry, just let them know—those who say "industry" when booking a spot will get a discounted rate of $55. If you'd like to commemorate the event with some ink of your own, stop by Code of Conduct before 5:45pm and you can get tatted, then take a complimentary limo to the dinner. —Jenny Berg
