Things to do for April 18, 2013
Whiskey Dinners. Horoscope Parties. Wine at the Willis.
The weekend considers you a pal and a confidant.
All Signs Lead to Cocktails
There are astronomers. There are astrologers. Their convergence is a rare thing indeed. So there better be some stiff drinks on hand. This Adler Planetarium soiree celebrates the science that underpins the zodiac. It’s the rare party where “What’s your sign?” is an acceptable conversation starter.
Sipping Bordeaux on the 99th Floor
Sipping 50 wines from Bordeaux is a pretty cool way to spend Friday night. But drinking them while looking out over the majestic Chicago skyline from the 99th floor of Willis Tower is, well, better. A good view pairs nicely with Bordeaux.
Drinking 26 Beers, from A to Z
Maybe you’re not the type who needs 50 wines. Just give you 26 beers in a row and you’re darn happy. So this alphabetical rundown of craft beers, from Founders All Day IPA to Brewery Vivant’s Zaison, should make you quite content. Also, very tipsy.
Meet Joey Evans. He’s a scoundrel, a heel, a womanizer and a showboat, and one hell of a fun guy. We think you’re going to like him. Porchlight Music Theatre’s new staging of this Broadway classic (Sinatra did the film) revolves around a South Side hustler with a heart of... well, not gold.
A Night of Rooftop Whiskey and Cigars
Next week is WhiskyFest. To celebrate, Fountainhead is hosting a dinner party featuring new chef Cleetus Friedman’s creations paired with whiskey from three distilleries (Corsair, MB Roland and Redemption). Afterward, there’s a rooftop garden party with more whiskey. Also, cigars. In case the hand not holding whiskey gets bored.
