The Weekender

This Weekend: Cubs, Sox and Whipped Cream

Here we go, weekend, here we go.

Thursday
Get Paid to Dress Like a Winner
MASTERFUL

Get Paid to Dress Like a Winner

During the Masters, you like to slip on a green blazer just to mess with people (your resemblance to Sam Snead: uncanny). If you wear it to the Boundary when the tourney’s on, you’ll get a $25 gift card. Your fashion sense really is a gold mine.

Apr 5-8, The Boundary, 1932 W Division St (at Winchester), 773-278-1919

A Dance Party with Whipped Cream
SWEET MOVES

A Dance Party with Whipped Cream

Finally, the late-night Wicker Park dance party you’ve been waiting for: the one with cake. It also has an open champagne bar to kick things off (our advice: get there early), plus gratis cookies, lemon bars and brownies. The rest of the night is dedicated to sweating them off.

Friday
Sox Tailgating on a Downtown Rooftop
CELL OUTS

Sox Tailgating on a Downtown Rooftop

After the Wrigleyville melee today, you’d enjoy something a little more refined for the Sox opener: complimentary BBQ-pulled-pork sliders, Kobe sliders, Italian beef sandwiches and $5 cocktails on a posh rooftop. The Sox always bring out everyone’s classiest side.

Apr 6, noon-5pm, III Forks, 333 E Benton Pl (at N Field), 312-938-4303

Just Drink Beer and Look for Eggs
HOPPY YET

Just Drink Beer and Look for Eggs

Frogs do it. Rabbits do it. And even Indian pale ales do it. They get hoppy. So 10 of the hoppiest IPAs from the Coach House’s new beer menu are just $5. If nothing else, it should make looking for those Easter eggs hidden around the bar more interesting.

Sunday
That Whole Sunday Brunch Thing...
FAR EASTER

That Whole Sunday Brunch Thing...

This Sunday is a holiday synonymous with... brunch. If things go well, brunch may become synonymous with fresh maki and Japanese grilled-pork-belly omelets. Sunday, this River North robata grill debuts its take on the meal that might replace Bloody Marys with sake bombs.

Sundays starting Apr 8, 11am-3pm, Roka Akor, 456 N Clark St (at Illinois), 312-477-7652
