The Weekender

Beers at Soldier Field, Caviar and New Shirts

Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy weekend.

Thursday
Rum and Ham. Together at Last.
HAM SLAM

Rum and Ham. Together at Last.

This backyard cookout features not just live rock bands, copious amounts of ham and copious amounts of rum. It also features ham that’s cooked with rum, so you may have trouble determining where your drinking ends and your Hawaiian pizza begins. Yes, your ham has gone all Inception on you.

May 9, 8pm-2am, no cover, Sheffield’s, 3258 N Sheffield Ave, 773-281-4989

Friday
Doing Caviar Shots at David Burke’s
HAPPIER HOUR

Doing Caviar Shots at David Burke’s

The remodeled bar at David Burke’s Primehouse now has vodka-and-caviar pairings—homemade Pringles, yuzu tobiko caviar dip, Tito’s vodka—that kind of stuff. Nothing says you’re ready for the weekend like wiping your mouth with your sleeve after a good belt of caviar.

Drinking in the Pilsen Art Scene
ART THOU

Drinking in the Pilsen Art Scene

It’s almost the second Friday of the month, which happens to be the night the galleries of Pilsen swing open their doors, offer the finest in cheese and beer, and let you roam around. They’ll also be offering the finest in art, in case that interests you at all.

Saturday
Tackling Some Beers at Soldier Field
DA BEERS

Tackling Some Beers at Soldier Field

You’re busy. We’re busy. Everyone’s busy. But you cannot neglect your American-beer researching duties. So we’re recommending this new beer festival with hundreds of beers from 80 breweries big and small. And if you need to do a little hot dog refresher, those will be available, too.

May 11, 6-10pm, $60, Soldier Field, 1410 S Museum Campus Dr, 312-725-7726, tickets here

Sunday
A Place to Drink Whiskey and Buy Shirts
SHIRT TALES

A Place to Drink Whiskey and Buy Shirts

Sunday is Mother’s Day. You can probably find a last-minute gift at this event. Especially if your mom is into custom-tailored men’s shirts from Glass House Shirtmakers or Journeyman Distillery’s Silver Cross Whiskey. And if she’s not, Veruca Chocolates will be there with some pretty tasty backup ideas.
