Things to do for June 28, 2013
This Is the Weekend You Have a Pizza Bloody Mary
The weekend is currently sitting inside the Stanley Cup. Yes, it’s a very tight fit.
After a massive Friday afternoon victory parade, the one thing you’re probably looking for: a massive street fest. Here to please: the World’s Largest Block Party, with burgers, pizza, beer, brats and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros headlining tonight. It’s 100% ticker-tape-free, though.
Fashion. Art. Rock Bands. You.
This party honors the Art Institute’s new exhibit on fashion in Impressionism, an era when a respectable gentleman wasn’t seen without a silk top hat and monocle. And while the night features a rock band and cocktails, your monocle is still strictly optional.
A Cool New Rooftop in Wrigleyville
As we close out June, sports bar staple Casey Moran’s has taken a moment to pause and refresh its roof deck. It’s now a sexy, date-friendly spot with ivy-covered walls, outdoor televisions and fishbowls filled with cocktails... so, yes, you’re still in Wrigleyville.
Pizza in Your Bloody Mary
A cold slice of pizza for breakfast: well, we usually don’t recommend it. Unless it’s an emergency. Or unless it’s being served as garnish to your Bloody Mary. Which it will be here, along with hot pizza with eggs and bacon. Pizza really is the best accompaniment to pizza.
Daniel Clowes Hits the MCA
Daniel Clowes, the man behind graphic novels like Ghost World, will be on hand for a discussion with the curator of this new retrospective of his work—which includes a whopping 125 of his original drawings. It’s sort of like a graphic novel you’ll read standing up.
