Things to do for May 16, 2013
Harvey Wallbangers, a Pork Party and Grilled Cheese
The weekend boldly goes where no weekend has gone before.
Re: Your Shoes, Belts and Shades
This glorious weather has made you realize a couple of essential truths. One: life is short. Two: you can always use another pair of sunglasses. Now, regarding the second, Apartment Number 9 is taking 15% off most accessories this weekend. So life is short, but also good.
Those French and their cheeses—always up to something. This time: a wholesale cheese market and café where you’ll stock up on brie, camembert, Fourme d’Ambert and Pont-l’Évêque while snacking on gratis bites of grilled cheese and sipping wine. Berets, however, are strictly optional.
Porkchop Turns 2. Break Out the Pigs.
Porkchop is a pretty cool name for a restaurant. It evokes a certain... boldness. Also: the smell of pork. Celebrate their second anniversary with an all-day patio party filled with PBRs, sliders, tacos and whiskey for $2. Plus: a rock/blues band. A giant pig on a spit provides the requisite aroma.
Well, time flies. Goose Island is having a 25th-anniversary block party, with live music, plenty of food (fish tacos, pizza) and samplings of all kinds of beer from Bourbon County Stout to their 25th Anniversary Ale. Basically a hoppy stroll down memory lane.
The Return of the Harvey Wallbanger
Fern bars. Gee. How to explain what those were... well, let’s see. They had ferns. They had Harvey Wallbangers and White Russians. They had singles ready to mingle. And that’s about it. So R.J. Grunts’s Monday night fern bar party has everything. Though it could use a little dose of you.
