Things to do for June 21, 2013
General Zod, Cigars and Cold Beer
The weekend is not a test.
Imagine the Best Beer Bash Ever
There’s nothing like a cold beer on a hot day. Except for maybe 50 cold beers on a hot day. And hey, look what we have here: a craft beer fest bringing together your favorite local and not-so-local microbrews. Yes, they’ll have your favorite Lebanese beer.
Cigars. Barbecue. Whiskey. You.
You can’t have a good barbecue without smoke. So Rick Gersh (David Burke’s Primehouse), Giuseppe Tentori (Boka, GT Fish & Oyster) and Cleetus Friedman (Fountainhead) have tapped 10 of their chef buddies to create a magical evening of puffing stogies, outdoor cooking and whiskey cocktailing. The summer trifecta.
On Saturday, Maria’s is turning itself into a pop-up vintage record shop for the afternoon. On hand: rare albums of rock, pop, punk, indie, blues, country—you name it. Also on hand: DJs spinning and bartenders beering. Yes, that means a high chance of afternoon patio dancing.
General Zod Would Like a Few Words
Chicago-honed thespian Michael Shannon returns to host a screening of a little art house picture called Man of Steel, in which he plays the bad guy. Afterward, cohost Billy Dec invites everyone to Rockit for appetizers and cocktails—so Billy Dec plays the good guy.
