Things to do for June 13, 2013

The Weekender

Whiskey, Dancing and a Coffee-and-Donuts Ice Cream Bar

The weekend will be decided in triple overtime.

Thursday
Coffee-and-Donuts Ice Cream Is Here
WAKE-UP CALL

Coffee-and-Donuts Ice Cream Is Here

West Town Bakery has opened a second outlet, this time in the Acme Hotel, and your coffee drinking and donut eating may never be the same. That’s because this place has managed to incorporate both into one single ice cream bar. Let’s hear it for progress, folks.

A Boat Show Docking in a Harbor
SHIP SHAPE

A Boat Show Docking in a Harbor

You could buy some sort of floating vessel at this in-the-water boat show. Maybe a yacht. Maybe a paddleboard. Who knows. Or another option: you could just get dragged around the water in something called a banana boat. It’s much, much less expensive than the yacht.

Jun 13-16, times vary, $10, 31st Street Harbor, 3155 S Lake Shore Dr, 312-225-6464, tickets here

Friday
Soldier Field Gets Very Techno
MOBY’S DECK

Soldier Field Gets Very Techno

Soldier Field started looking like a spaceship in 2003. This weekend, it will actually sound like one with a three-day techno-palooza, featuring EDM heavyweights like Calvin Harris and Moby, the godfather of techno. He’ll lay down a beat you can’t refuse.

Jun 14, 3:30-11pm; Jun 15-16, 12:30-11pm; $65 and up, Soldier Field, 1410 S Museum Campus Dr, 312-235-7000, tickets here

Meet the New Rye in Town
RYE CATCHER

Meet the New Rye in Town

Angel’s Envy is jumping into the rye whiskey game. So it’s bringing its master distiller to town to show off a new rye that’s aged in oak and then finished in rum casks for 18 months. Not a bad way to spend a year and a half, actually.

Saturday
A Day of Wine and Sand in Michigan
A LITTLE WEKO

A Day of Wine and Sand in Michigan

A quick pre–Father’s Day idea: take ol’ Pops to Bridgman—a pleasant little Michigan town—which is offering up its Weko Beach to host a locally grown wine fest, with rock bands and a visit from Chicago’s Wagyu Wagon. Or, you know, just go with the tie.

Jun 15, 1-10pm, $10 ($15 at door), Weko Beach, 5239 Lake St, Bridgman, MI, 269-925-6301, tickets here
