Things to do for May 27, 2010

The Weekender

Clambakes, Blackhawks and Death by Chicken

This weekend is your hat trick.

Thursday
50% Off at Haberdash
SALE-ING

50% Off at Haberdash

Haberdash is doing a one-day sale where any one single item is half-off, which is kind of crazy—though not as crazy as showing up at your favorite seaside retreat without a new pair of boat shoes.

May 27, Haberdash, 1350 N Wells St (between Schiller and Evergreen), 312-440-1300

Hermès Moving Sale
SALE-ING II

Hermès Moving Sale

The Oak Street Hermès boutique you know is soon relocating to the old Barneys space on Tuesday. So in that very discreet Hermès way, they've decided to lighten the load by slashing everything remaining in the store by 40% to 80%—here's hoping that cummerbund you had your eye on is there.

Through May 28, Hermès, 110 E Oak St (between Rush and Michigan), 312-787-8175

Friday
Kohler Festival of Beer
BREW CREW

Kohler Festival of Beer

Wisconsin is to beer what Bordeaux is to wine. So when there's a beer festival there, it's wise to pay attention. This sudsy three-day event offers activities ranging from golf tourneys and beer gardens to beer-and-seafood buffets and Kegs & Eggs brunches. It's what Wisconsinites call "going native."

Sunday
Suicide Wings at Division Ale House
DEATH BY CHICKEN

Suicide Wings at Division Ale House

On a typical three-day weekend, you encounter all manner of crazy: jet skis, bikinis and chicken wings so hot you'll sign a waiver and don latex gloves before eating. The Wicker Park pub is dousing its wings with bhut jolokia pepper extract, and they'll give you a trophy for eating 10... though you'll probably settle for a glass of water.

Available starting May 30, Division Ale House, 1942 W Division St (between Wolcott and Damen), 773-384-6886

Monday
Blackhawk Viewing Party at the Conrad
POWER PLAY

Blackhawk Viewing Party at the Conrad

Saturday, it's all United Center box seats and body checks. So by Monday, you may be ready for a little fresh air. The Conrad is flinging open the doors to its terrace with the Stanley Cup on a 110-inch surround-sound screen, pitchers of vodka lemonade and absolutely no penalty box.

Tuesday
Fulton's on the River Clambake
ON THE CLAM

Fulton's on the River Clambake

It's a cruel world that tosses you back into the workaday world after three long days of beach volleyball and raging barbecues. Fulton's eases you back in with a monthly alfresco clambake that includes a couple of cold beers and all the hot clams you can handle. (Asbestos fingers recommended.)
