Glamorama with Cee Lo Green
CEE YOU

Glamorama with Cee Lo Green

You and Cee Lo have been hanging out a lot this week. (You couldn’t shake him after you guys took in the Deadmau5 set together at Lolla.) So here he is again, headlining the annual fashion-and-music extravaganza known as Glamorama. Just don’t snub him at the after-party.

Aug 12, 8pm, $75-$1,000, The Chicago Theatre, 175 N State St (between Lake and Randolph), 312-462-6300

Sunday
Street Food Fest at Galleria Marchetti
KEEP ON TRUCKIN’

Street Food Fest at Galleria Marchetti

You’ve done Taste. You’ve done Lolla. You have the elote guy’s cell phone number. You’re no stranger to street fare. This all-star event brings together the talents of the likes of noodle master Takashi Yagihashi and Uptown Pie Truck, along with art and live music. Yes, that’s right: pie truck.

A Refined Night of Geishas and Sake
KIMONOS

A Refined Night of Geishas and Sake

Sake bombs and lamb chops. No, not a traditional pairing. But when everything on the menu and bar is 15% off at this quirky and modern Japanese pub, you may find yourself experimenting. Consider the geisha servers your lab assistants.

Aug 14, 8pm-2am, Lure Izakaya Pub, 2017 S Wells St (in Chinatown Square), 312-225-8989

A Lobster Broil at a Steakhouse
ROCKIN’ LOBSTERS

A Lobster Broil at a Steakhouse

Surf and turf is a steakhouse classic. But sometimes... the surf goes solo. This patio lobster broil serves you a pound of lobster, along with corn, baby red potatoes, mussels, clams, shrimp and chorizo sausage in garlic butter sauce. Quite the supporting cast.

Sundays in August, $60 per couple, minimum two people, Chicago Cut Steakhouse, 300 N LaSalle St, 312-329-1800
