Had a tough week already? Here are three ways to take the edge off in the next couple of days. Don't say we've never done anything for you:

Wednesday
Duchamp launches its creatively named Wednesdays at Duchamp series with an event featuring free Heineken Light from 5-8 p.m. From 7-10 p.m., you'll also be able to try some summer coctkails featuring Veev and St. Germaine ($5), sample small and large plates from the French-influenced menu and enjoy a DJ spinning downtempo beats on the patio.

Thursday
Bistro 110 continues its Tour de France wine-tasting series with an Alsace tasting from 6-8 p.m. For $25, you'll get pours of several French wines (including Cremant d'Alsace and Domaine Martin Schaetzel Cuvee Reserves), plus snacks like braised pork, bacon and sauerkraut choucroute; tart flambe; baked pretzels; and frog legs in white wine sauce.

Join the Svedka vodka "Mile-High Club" party from 6-9 p.m. at C-View, the rooftop lounge on the 29th floor of the Affinia Chicago hotel. Flight attendants will serve a number of special Svedka cocktails at the outdoor bar, including the Future Ex, with fresh raspberries and lemons, and the Fembot Fatale, with cranberry juice, fresh strawberries and basil leaves ($10 each). Complimentary hors d'oeuvres like mini yellowtail fish tacos and grilled oysters will be served. RSVP to Chris@expagency.com.
