Things to do for March 13, 2009

The Weekender

Deadly Sins, Beer Mimosas and South Side Irish

The weekend is dyeing.

Friday
7 Deadly Sins Dinner at Blue 13
INDULGE

7 Deadly Sins Dinner at Blue 13

Sometimes you want to break all the rules—but first, dinner. Indulge at this one-night-only prix fixe, where sloth takes the form of Lazy Ravioli, and Angry Lobster stands in for wrath. With seven courses in all, gluttony's certainly covered.

$77, Mar 13, 416 W. Ontario St (W. of Orleans), 312-787-1400

Saturday
St. Patrick's Day at Flatwater
DYE HARD

St. Patrick's Day at Flatwater

Watching the Chicago River turn green may be part of your annual St. Pat's tradition, but shivering amidst the suburban masses is not. So arrive early to stake a prime view in this snug riverside den, where the coldest (and greenest) thing will be your $4 Miller Light.

Opens at 10am (River dyes at 10:45), Mar 14, 321 N. Clark St, 312-644-0283

Rednofive 11th Anniversary Party
DANCE

Rednofive 11th Anniversary Party

Why look, little Rednofive is now officially a tween. Time really flies when you're sweating on that dance floor. Celebrate with an hour of gratis appetizers, a sultry fashion show and… a rock performance? Looks like someone's entering those challenging Hot Topic years.

Mar 14, 10pm-4am, 440 N. Halsted St‎; rsvp here (click "Upcoming Events")

Sunday
Four Corners' South Side Irish Bus
SAFETY IN NUMBERS

Four Corners' South Side Irish Bus

Even the most snobbish North Sider—so smug about his tapas bars, lavish brunches and 100 years without a pennant—can't help but love the South Side Irish Parade. But it's probably a good idea to travel in a pack… and with beer.

$20, bus leaves 9:30am from parking lot at Ashland and Barry, more info here

Brunch Debut at the Publican
BACON

Brunch Debut at the Publican

You expect a sizzling time when those bacon-fetishists at the Publican launch brunch, but it's actually the Beer Mimosa that will catch your attention first. It's exactly what it sounds like, plus we can't think of a better way to wash down those Spicy Pork Rinds.

Sundays starting Mar 15, 10am-2pm, 837 W. Fulton Market (at Green), 312-733-9555
