For their 90th birthday, the legendary Allen Edmonds designed an exclusive line of fall-worthy shoes—they’re priced well below their norm, and only available on Perks. Also, take 30% off football season’s best beef jerky, and pick up your VIP tickets to the Breeders’ Cup—before it’s too late.
Things to do for September 13, 2012
Like Alice’s Tea Party. But with Gin.
The weekend performs all its own stunts.
A Street of Irish Beer and Oysters
This street party offers kegs of Irish stout, barrels of wine and whatever it is that vast quantities of oysters arrive in. Slurp them in the oyster tent. Find out what places like Volo and John’s Place do with them. Just please eat. It’s really a lot of oysters.
Your Brunch Sangria Awaits...
Sunday brunch. Anyone can do it. But Saturday brunch... now that takes something special. It also takes sangria. And churros and eggs served family-style. And a bunch of friends. Okay, so it’s not that different from Sunday brunch. But you shouldn’t have to wait.
Friday’s Riot Fest at Congress Theater is sold out. That’s fine. It’s merely a prelude to the concert/carnival in Humboldt Park featuring rides, games and, oh yeah, Rise Against on Saturday and Elvis Costello, Iggy and the Stooges on Sunday. Iggy does look kind of carny.
The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
The annual Mods vs. Rockers motorcycle and scooter rally took place in June. But it’s reborn. Temporarily. As a pop-up art gallery and shop. Which isn’t quite the same thing. But there will be beer. And rock bands. And burlesque performers dancing on the bar. Oh, and art.
Welcome. Step right in. What you see in front of you: a full-tilt Alice in Wonderland–themed gala. The kind with an open bar, food from 70 restaurants and Pete Wentz as the DJ. In other words, curiouser and curiouser.
