Things to do for July 21, 2011

The Weekender

Yachts, Evil Clowns and Other Weekend Essentials

The weekend is sweating piña coladas.

Thursday
Carnival of Chaos at Porkchop
CIRCUS-LIKE ATMOSPHERE

Carnival of Chaos at Porkchop

Nightlife impresario Dion Antic is having a birthday. And in his usual understated style, he’s throwing a modest gathering for friends, family, fire-breathers, burlesque performers and evil clowns. Bourbon snow cones will play the role of birthday cake.

Jul 21, 8pm-2am, Porkchop, 941 W Randolph St (between Sangamon and Morgan), 312-733-9333

Friday
Imerman Angels’ Dockside Soiree
WHAT’S UP, DOCK?

Imerman Angels’ Dockside Soiree

Friends in need and friends with boats. Two classes of people equally deserving of your attention. This dockside charity yacht party helps you spend time with each, along with a few bartenders, DJs and tapas from Mercat a la Planxa. See, sometimes it’s good to be anchored.

Saturday
Fül Opens in Lakeview
FÜLLY OPERATIONAL

Fül Opens in Lakeview

A new juice bar. A new sandwich shop. Neither really all that earth-shattering. So let’s combine them and throw a nutritionist available for private consultations, plus a few prosciutto and fig sandwiches, into the mix. Your post-workout protein has been in need of some Italian pork.

Sasha Grey Spins at Enclave
THE GREY ALBUMS

Sasha Grey Spins at Enclave

Model. Actress. And, of course, DJ. Yes, there’s nothing that Sasha Grey hasn’t done. (Well, maybe we should rephrase that.) In any case, you will be able to see her display at least one of those talents in flagrante as she keeps dancers sweating this weekend at Enclave.

Jul 23, doors at 9pm, $20 after 11pm, Enclave, 220 W Chicago Ave (between Wells and Franklin), 312-654-0234, RSVP here

Sunday
Rooftop Partying at Market
COPA CABANA

Rooftop Partying at Market

The Copa América finals: important stuff. More important: the right place to watch. Meet Manero Club Social y Deportivo, dedicated to sports, cultura and suave partying everywhere. As an introduction, they’re hosting a rooftop bash featuring sets by Nacotheque, good food and ice-cold beer. First impressions: so important.

Jul 24, 2-5pm, no cost, Market, 1113 W Randolph (at May), 312-929-4787, RSVP here
