They're not calling it #Chiberia for nothing: it's cold out there, Chicago. In solidarity, the staff at Urban Remains, West Town's building-artifact museum and gallery, is offering hot chocolate (with marshmallows!) to anyone who ventures out to shop. But there's also a nice incentive to stay in and shop online. Through Wednesday, everything on the website is 25 percent off. Just use the code "jan2014" at checkout. [Racked Inbox]
