Things to do for March 26, 2009

The Weekender

Free Beer, Iconic Posters and Obnoxious T-Shirts

The weekend comes in like a lion.

Thursday
Neapolitan Men Opens
FASHION INDEX

Neapolitan Men Opens

Economists have their indicators, and we have ours: the opening of a new men's boutique carrying Alexander McQueen, YSL and quirky French tie-maker Leonard bodes well for an economic recovery. We can feel it in our Sperry Top-Siders.

Now open, 725 Elm St (near Lincoln), Winnetka, 847-441-7784

Friday
Goose Island Beer Launch
GOOSED

Goose Island Beer Launch

Be the first to experience Goose Island's two new beers, Juliet and Sofie. Aged in wine barrels for a woodsy, Belgian-y taste, they're the sexiest pair of beers we've ever seen from the microbrewer. Yes, we have a thing for twins.

Free samples, 9-11pm, Mar 27, DOD, 650 N. Dearborn St, 312-337-9463, rsvp here

$10 Fish Fry at One Sixtyblue
GO FISH

$10 Fish Fry at One Sixtyblue

One Sixtyblue is offering Catholics and non-Catholics alike a Friday feast for the ages of Alaskan cod and a basket of fries (with housemade malt vinegar) for just 10 bucks. And it would be a sin to skip those $4 beers…

Fridays, One Sixtyblue, 1400 W. Randolph St (at Loomis), 312-850-0303

Saturday
The International Vintage Poster Fair
POSTER CHILD

The International Vintage Poster Fair

Your walls have been looking sort of bare lately, so this could be the event for you. With more than 10,000 original vintage posters up for grabs—ranging from art deco travel ads to the coveted works of a Playboy illustrator—we're sure you'll find something to tie the room together.

T-Shirt Battle Royale at Revel Post Office
I'M WITH STUPID

T-Shirt Battle Royale at Revel Post Office

This underground party, located in an original 1930s Pony Express post office, rewards those guests wearing the most obnoxious t-shirt slogans. If you go the classy route and wear a t-shirt tux, you'll still get access to unlimited vodka, beer and hot dogs. So keep your shirt on.

$49, 9pm-1am, Mar 28, 1402 N. Western Ave, 773-410-0220, tickets here

Monday
Delilah's Taste of Kentucky Whiskey Night
BLUEGRASS

Delilah's Taste of Kentucky Whiskey Night

Kentucky knows whiskey. So of all the side-parties going on next week in conjunction with Whisky Fest, this one stood out to us—it'll spend all night wooing you with the finest whiskeys from the Bluegrass State's top distilleries.

Free, 6pm-2am, Mar 30, Delilah's, 2771 N. Lincoln Ave, 773-472-2771
