The Weekender

Epic Burgers, Naked Pillow Fights and Andy Warhol

The weekend is looking forward to doing time with you.

Thursday
Friday
A Really, Really, Really Big Movie Debut
WARHOL

A Really, Really, Really Big Movie Debut

Andy Warhol’s Empire—a silent, black-and-white, eight-hour film of the Empire State Building—will be projected on the Aon Center tomorrow. You’ll view it from the comfort of a private suite in the Art Institute surrounded by cocktails, appetizers and DJs. The way Andy intended.

Saturday
This Is Going to Be Totally Epic
BURGERTIME

This Is Going to Be Totally Epic

’Tis the season of generosity. So if a local burger chain needs some help during a test run of a new location before it opens to the public next week, you’ll be there. They’re happy to pick up the tab in exchange for your burger and fries expertise.

Free-ish Tater Tots at Fish Bar
TOTS FOR TOYS

Free-ish Tater Tots at Fish Bar

Next time you’re hungry for a lobster roll, remember to bring a new toy with you. The kindly folks at Fish Bar will donate it to needy kids—and reward your kindness by giving you some tater tots. Which always taste better when they’re for a good cause.

Dec 10-22, Fish Bar, 2956 N Sheffield Ave (at Wellington), 773-687-8177

Tuesday
Naked Pillow Fights, an Xmas Tradition
FEATHER DUSTUP

Naked Pillow Fights, an Xmas Tradition

The well-intentioned folks behind Title IX probably never imagined a world where ladies would be whomping each other on stage for the sake of money and spectacle. And we’re not endorsing such activities. We’re just letting you know you now live in that world.

Dec 13-15, $20 for men (no cost for women), 10pm, Admiral Theatre, 3940 W Lawrence Ave (at Harding), 773-478-8111

Next Thursday
A Pop-Up of Boka/Bristol’s New Project
FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

A Pop-Up of Boka/Bristol’s New Project

You like to be ahead of the curve. You also like to eat. And drink. So we procured one pair of tickets to the super-exclusive pop-up preview of Balena, the forthcoming Boka/Bristol collaboration. Just tweet @UrbanDaddy with your New Year’s resolution, using #balena. Best one wins.
