The Weekender

Kangaroo Chili, One Last Beach Party and Yodeling

The weekend is calling for a boycott of Monday.

Thursday
Kangaroo-Chili Weather Arrives
’ROO THE DAY

Kangaroo-Chili Weather Arrives

The leaves. They’re turning. The air. It’s crisp. Yes, all signs point to chili weather. But this is Frontier’s new fall menu you’re dealing with—land of elk, alligator and other exotic meat—so it happens to be kangaroo-meat chili. Just pretend you’re at a tailgate in the Outback.

Available now at Frontier, 1072 N Milwaukee Ave, 773-772-4322

Saturday
A Beer Beach Party in Michigan
DAY TRIPPIN’

A Beer Beach Party in Michigan

Let’s do it. One more all-hands-on-deck beach party—preferably one with all beer makers on deck, too. Something like this brewer’s festival in Bridgman. Admission gets you 10 tasting tickets, a mug and live rock bands. Then you’re set loose on Michigan’s finest microbrewers. Maybe we should warn them.

Better Break Out the Late-Night Tux
FORMALLY KNOWN

Better Break Out the Late-Night Tux

This party aims to raise money for charity the old-fashioned way: with DJs, bottle service, a retractable glass roof and a strictly enforced dress code—black and white for men, red for women. Sorry, that red tux of yours will just have to wait.

Sunday
Prepare for the Great Pork Shortage
BACONATION

Prepare for the Great Pork Shortage

The news of a winter pork shortage has sent shockwaves through the city. In response, this little Italian spot with a cozy garden will be spit-roasting a pig, with all-you-can-eat sides of pasta to gorge on. Might as well go out with a bang.

It’s Time to Win a Yodeling Contest

If there’s one thing you’re good at, it’s drinking beer. If there are two other things, it’s yodeling and polka dancing. So you’re well-positioned for this Oktoberfest party with beer flights and polka and yodeling contests. You’re also well-positioned for lederhosen.

Sep 30, gratis beer tastings 7-9pm, The Pony, 1638 W Belmont Ave, 773-828-5055
