Things to do for April 21, 2011

The Weekender

Sexy Bunnies, Candy Cocktails and Lingerie

The weekend only likes black jelly beans.

Thursday
The Undie Ground
GARTERING SUPPORT

The Undie Ground

Get ready for cocktails, models in underwear and gift bags. Oh, that’s right—you were born ready. That’s good: the folks at the Underground want to show you their knickers. Yes, they’re underwear designers now. You’ve suspected it was their ambition all along.

Friday
R.J. Grunts Debuts Late Nights
GRUNTING IN THE DARK

R.J. Grunts Debuts Late Nights

After four decades—and heroically inventing the sneeze guard—R.J. Grunts could just settle down. Instead, it’s throwing a party to celebrate the fact that it will be open until late on weekends, so you can get that boozy banana shake before going home. Again with the heroism.

Fri-Sat, open until 2am, R.J. Grunts, 2056 N Lincoln Park West (at Dickens), 773-929-5363

Burlesque Pastie Hunt
COTTON TAILS

Burlesque Pastie Hunt

The Easter Bunny. Probably the sexiest of all holiday mascots (Christopher Columbus is obviously a close second). The girls of Vaudezilla Burlesque help it reach its full potential with bumping, grinding, pin the cotton tail on the bunny and the traditional pastie hunt. Basically, Easter at the Playboy Mansion.

Apr 22, 9 and 11pm, no cost, Lincoln Tap Room, 3010 N Lincoln Ave, 773-868-0060

Saturday
Goose Island Takes Over at SmallBar
GOOSE IS LOOSE

Goose Island Takes Over at SmallBar

Sure, $39 million was a fair price for Goose Island. But, look, for $25 you can get full access to 20 of its best brews when the brewery commandeers all the taps here for the night. And that includes the service.

Sunday
Bowling for Easter
SPARE CHANGE

Bowling for Easter

Bowling pins. You knock them down. They get right back up. It’s hard to miss the metaphor, of course. Also hard to miss: Easter martinis brightened with marshmallow Peeps, chocolate eggs and other holiday staples... like vodka.
