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.

Sep 15-16, $7, 11am-10pm, Oyster Festival, corner of Roscoe St and Damen Ave, 773-868-3010

Your Brunch Sangria Awaits...
SPANISH OMELETS

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.

Sat-Sun starting Sep 15, 11:30am-3pm, Tavernita, 151 W Erie St, 312-274-1111

Mr. Costello Requests Your Presence
RIOT GEAR

Mr. Costello Requests Your Presence

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
CYCLING THROUGH

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.

Like Alice’s Tea Party. But with Gin.
GREEN ROOM

Like Alice’s Tea Party. But with Gin.

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.
