Night life events: Carlucci's warms the heart and the belly

By Sara Hooker

Carlucci's flaming coffee
After-dinner drinks don't get much hotter than Carlucci's signature flaming coffee. It's made with Bailey's and Grand Marnier, topped off with coffee and a caramelized cinnamon sugar rim and garnished with an orange slice. The liquor is warmed table-side by lighting it on fire. The flaming coffee is offered throughout the winter for $9.95. Carlucci Restaurant, 1801 Butterfield Road, Downers Grove. (630) 512-0990 or carluccidownersgrove.com.

Aliano's game day
When the Bears take the field, fans can take to Aliano's Ristorante for game day specials that include $2 domestic bottles and $4 select import bottles. Buy a pizza and get a second one for half off. Raffles every quarter include payouts of Bears gear and Aliano's gift certificates. Aliano's Ristorante, 90 N. Island Ave., Batavia. (630) 406-9400 or alianosbatavia.com.
