Things to do for May 31, 2012

The Weekender

Free Sandwiches, Shakespeare and The Godfather

Yes, of course, the weekend will happily be your coxswain.

Thursday
When the Bard Met Don Corleone
SHAKESPERIENCE

When the Bard Met Don Corleone

The Godfather: good book, great movie. But just imagine how awesome it would have been if William Shakespeare had written it (with notes on the dailies from Robert Evans). Well, imagine no longer, with this performance of the classic gangster story rendered in full, glorious iambic pentameter.

Friday
Crepe Inflation Ends Here and Now
SPIRIT OF ’72

Crepe Inflation Ends Here and Now

In 1972, the world was simply an awful place. The president tapped your phone. Your slacks were flared. Worse, they were called slacks. But you could get a nice French crepe for almost nothing. La Creperie celebrates 40 years by remembering only the good things with its original prices.

Jun 1, 11:30am-6pm, La Creperie, 2845 N Clark St, 773-528-9050

You, a Plate of Ribs and 42 Wineries
BARRELING

You, a Plate of Ribs and 42 Wineries

We had a premonition about you: you’re in Union Station’s Grand Hall. You’re drinking wine. You’re meeting winemakers. You’re throwing out terms like “biodynamic viticulture.” You slip into French at one point. You’re also eating Robinson’s ribs. So weird. You don’t even speak French.

Saturday
Meet Porky, Your New Power Breakfast
PORKED

Meet Porky, Your New Power Breakfast

We’re not going to ask why you are out until 6am on Saturday. We’re simply going to introduce you to some new friends: the Porky, the Chubby, the Tubby and the Fatty, a team of breakfast sandwiches at Phil’s Last Stand. They’ll want to make sure you get home okay.

They’re Angry. And They’re All Yours.
FREE BIRDS

They’re Angry. And They’re All Yours.

The folks at M Burger have a new turkey sandwich. It’s called the Angry Bird. And they really, really want you to try it. Actually, they dare you to try it. In any of three different levels of mouth-blistering intensity. And if you mention us, it’s free. But, diabolically, you’ll have to pay for the Coke.

Jun 2, M Burger, various locations

UD Hookup: Mention UrbanDaddy on June 2 for a free Angry Bird with the purchase of fries, a drink or a shake; good at all locations except James R. Thompson Center.
