The Weekender

Rooftops, Zombies and Marisa Miller

The weekend is driving you straight to the hoop.

Thursday
The Denim Lounge Grand Opening
FITTING LIKE GLOVES

The Denim Lounge Grand Opening

You have your reasons for attending this event. You love animals (cover goes to the ASPCA). You want a 20% discount on jeans. You want to discuss the Cubs’ batting strategy with Reed Johnson and Tyler Colvin, both slated to appear. You want a stiff drink. Good news: all valid.

May 12, 6pm, $20, The Denim Lounge, 2039 W Roscoe St, 773-935-2820, no RSVP needed if you mention UD

Friday
Rooftop Opening at C-View
AFFINITY

Rooftop Opening at C-View

Even spring thunderstorms can’t dampen your enthusiasm for rooftop season. C-View kicks it off tomorrow with $10 tequila cocktails, an indoor-outdoor terrace, incredible views and a gift certificate for a free room if you’re the best dressed for summer. So wear your formal swim trunks.

Opens May 13, 7pm, C-House, 166 E Superior St, 29th Fl, 312-523-0923

Marisa Miller at Public House
MODEL BEHAVIOR

Marisa Miller at Public House

Swimsuit model Marisa Miller cutting a giant birthday cake for a cartoon rum mascot’s pretend birthday. It sounds like the kind of dream you get when you’re sleeping off last night’s rum. But it’s really happening Friday night. Make that surreally happening.

Zombie Prom
DEAD CAN DANCE

Zombie Prom

The smell of rotting flesh. The groaning. The stiff-legged shuffling. Come to think of it, this zombie costume dance party isn’t really so different from the average high school dance in the gym. But you’ll get to drink right out in the open, and your date will probably be livelier.

May 13, 9pm-4am, $20 advance, $25 door, Vision, 632 N Dearborn St, 312-266-1944, tickets here

Sunday
Rooftop Sundays at the Wit
ET TUTU

Rooftop Sundays at the Wit

This new all-day soiree starts early... and high. Roof introduces its Sunday bash starting at 11am with special cocktails, high-energy DJs and—well, of course—waitresses wearing ballet tutus. It’s like Black Swan with more tequila and less feathers.
