Things to do for April 07, 2011
Beer Parties, Champagne Soirees and the White Sox
The weekend is wearing wingtip cleats.
Artisan Bar at the Stadium Club
Today, you may have been distracted at the Cell. Home opener. A new bar. Minnie Miñoso’s surprisingly powerful fastball. But, psst: tucked away in the corner of the Stadium Club, there’s another new bar specializing in craft beer, with a dozen available. Hope for extra innings.
Fifth Anniversary at David Burke’s
Five years ago, a plucky upstart from New York elbowed his way into town with nothing but a salt cave and a dream. The executive chef and Goose Island toast the achievement at this party with Citrine Bombshell ale, their new collaboration. But bring whatever bombshell you have available.
The night is young. The air, crisp. The atmosphere, charged. Yep, this is champagne weather. So we expect you’ll be making the most of it at this massive DJ-fueled blowout rife with bubbly, vodka and scotch. Plus, proceeds help a kids charity. That’s you: always giving.
CHIRP Record Fair
You know it and we know it: the value of your collection of vintage polka albums is finally peaking. Find a good home for it at this annual convention of vinyl record enthusiasts. Grabbing people’s records and pretending to “scratch” them, DJ-style: discouraged.
You love a good secret. Better yet: a good secret ingredient. Even better yet: duck gyros. Taxim chef David Schneider takes his Grecian-honed culinary mastery to Iron Chef this Sunday. After a screening of the episode, you’ll be able to order some of his televised creations. Basically, it’s like edible TV.
