The Weekender

Rooftops, Beach Bars and 50-Cent Oysters

The weekend is now open for business.

The Return of Castaways
BEACH BUMP

The Return of Castaways

There is a multitude of ways to really kick off Memorial Day weekend. But we think the simplest is probably the best: at the beach. Drinking a frozen piña colada. At a giant two-story bar. That just happens to look like a boat. Ahoy there, Castaways, welcome back.

Saturday
That Clock Tower Movie at Music Box
SAFETY SEAT

That Clock Tower Movie at Music Box

Your summer blockbuster checklist is going pretty well. Now for your blockbusters of 1923 checklist: Safety Last—that silent picture where Harold Lloyd hangs from a clock tower—plays with live jazz band and organ accompaniment on Saturday. Something that Fast & Furious 6 sorely lacks.

Sunday
A Little Motown with Your Scrapple
ALL SOULS DAY

A Little Motown with Your Scrapple

Everyone knows pork belly scrapple benedict just isn’t the same without hollandaise sauce. But too few really appreciate what a little Motown can do for it, too. You’ll find all of that at Untitled’s soul-music brunch on Sunday. As well as a Bloody Mary station. Also good for the soul.

Sundays, 11am-3pm, Untitled, 111 W Kinzie St, 312-880-1511

You. Outside. With Strawberry Daiquiris.
ROSÉ OUTLOOK

You. Outside. With Strawberry Daiquiris.

Oh, glorious summer, grant your favors upon us. Your sun-dappled rooftops. Your pink-champagne-dappled afternoons. Whatever. Just dapple us with something. This lineup of 40 kinds of rosé should suffice. And just in case it doesn’t, there’s also booze-filled slushies and liquid-nitrogen margaritas.

Sundays, starting at noon, Drumbar, 201 E Delaware Pl, 312-924-2531

Monday
Hi. It’s Summer. Have Some Oysters.
MEMORIAL DEAL

Hi. It’s Summer. Have Some Oysters.

No work for you on Monday. But some folks will be out there working hard. Specifically, oyster shuckers at Shaw’s. Oysters are half off all day, except from 3 to 6pm, when they’re only 50 cents. So come hungry. And with lots of quarters.
