Iced Coffee, Cold Beer and Sweaty Dancing

The weekend, now with more ice cubes.

Thursday
The New Brew in Town...
JOLTED

The New Brew in Town...

You can tell this new coffee joint means business: they picked the hottest day of the year to open. Also: they roast their own beans. But they do offer an iced Ethiopian blend, just in case you need a caffeinated cool drink... or something to dump on your head.

$5 Beers from the Boys at the Gage
INTAKE THE FIFTH

$5 Beers from the Boys at the Gage

Time flies when you’re drinking beer and eating Scotch eggs. To celebrate five years of doing just that, the Gage is offering you a special five-course feast, plus $5 beers like Half Acre Gage 5YR Red and Goose Island Luciana, each brewed for the occasion. Yeast is traditional for fifth anniversaries.

Jun 28-Jul 14, The Gage, 24 S Michigan Ave, 312-372-4243

Saturday
A High Chance of Perspiration
THE WAVE

A High Chance of Perspiration

Your summer is pretty full of music festivals, and, frankly, it’s cutting into your beach time. So this two-day electronic dance fest offers up the likes of MSTRKRFT, Duck Sauce and James Murphy (doing a DJ set) on Montrose Beach. Very convenient for your tanning schedule.

Some Nice Pâté Before Your Shave
FRENCH DRESSING

Some Nice Pâté Before Your Shave

The Summer Chef Series continues at Haberdash EDC. This time, Martial Noguier of Bistronomic swings by with his pâté. It’s just what the French do on Saturday afternoons. Also: it’s just the thing you eat when you’re investigating a sale on Quoddy boat shoes.

This Place Is a Circus
GO ASK ALICE

This Place Is a Circus

Let’s see. Cocktails, circus performers, hors d’oeuvres, live bands, DJs, sweat-filled dance floors. Yes, the Lookinglass Junior Board has thought of everything for this year’s big-top-themed melee. So just bring a chair and a whip and you’ll be all set.
