Things to do for June 14, 2012

The Weekender

Free Haircuts, Father’s Day Golf and New Shirts

The weekend wears the pants in this family.

Thursday
A Crisp New Shirt. And a Drink.
SCOOPED

A Crisp New Shirt. And a Drink.

To celebrate the first anniversary of its Gold Coast shop, Scoop NYC is breaking out the good stuff: shirts from Roderick Tung, a maker of exquisitely tailored workwear. And because no good shirt is complete without the right cocktail, they’ll be pouring those, too.

Jun 14, 6-8pm, Scoop NYC, 1009 N Rush St (between Oak and Bellevue), 312-649-9880

Friday
Happy Lobster Day. Have a Lobster.
THE MAINE EVENT

Happy Lobster Day. Have a Lobster.

Another day, another ridiculous made-up food holiday. This time, National Lobster Day. To celebrate, Acadia is FedExing buns from Maine and serving up lobster rolls, homemade chips and Allagash White ale for 18 bucks. Actually, this one isn’t so ridiculous.

Jun 15, $18, Acadia, 1639 S Wabash Ave (between 16th and 18th St), 312-360-9500

You and Dad in a Wisconsin Shootout
FORE FATHER

You and Dad in a Wisconsin Shootout

This father-son golf package offers the following: a two-night hotel-and-spa stay, two rounds of golf, food, cocktail specials and a chance to win a trip to St Andrews in Scotland. Also: discounts on spa treatments. In case you and Dad need a tandem shoulder-rub warm-up.

Jun 15-17, $891/person, The American Club, 419 Highland Dr, Kohler, WI, 800-344-2838

Saturday
The City’s Newest Fried Chicken Joint
PLUCKY

The City’s Newest Fried Chicken Joint

Never underestimate two things: a good woman and good fried chicken. To wit: chef Kristine Subido’s new Filipino chicken spot, where you’ll find the bird roasted with lemongrass, battered and fried, basted and grilled, and stuffed into sandwiches. Nobody does poultry like the Philippines.

Some Quality Father-Son Barber Time
KEEP ON SNIPPIN’

Some Quality Father-Son Barber Time

So you’re thinking of getting your dad a watch for Father’s Day. And your father is thinking of getting you a haircut (you hippie). Head to this Timex pop-up shop, where you’ll find timepieces... and a retro barbershop offering free cuts. Win, win, snip, snip, tick, tock.
