Things to do for July 05, 2013

The Weekender

Nutella Twinkies, Grasshopper Ice Cream and Beach Dancing

This is no dud. This is the weekend.

Friday
Drinking Mudslides at the Beach
OLIVA WILD

Drinking Mudslides at the Beach

You’re at Ohio Street Beach and, boy... it’s hot. You could really go for something that’s cold, delicious and, ideally, tastes like an alcoholic Fudgsicle. We suggest Caffè Oliva, where their mudslides are $6. Hey, ice cream man: take a lesson.

Jul 5, 11am-10pm, Caffè Oliva, Ohio Street Beach, 312-612-0734

The Most EDM-y Beach This Weekend
DO THE WAVEFRONT

The Most EDM-y Beach This Weekend

If you feel like dancing... and something tells us you do (maybe it’s those glow sticks you’re holding), head to Montrose Beach. You’ll rave on for three straight days to Frankie Knuckles, Fatboy Slim, James Murphy and Justice DJ sets. So wear your favorite dancing flip-flops.

Grasshopper Ice Cream at a Steak Joint
BY JOVE

Grasshopper Ice Cream at a Steak Joint

If you go by the very cool name Jove T. Hubbard, you need an occupation that suits it. Bluesman. Toy-factory owner. Or this: steakhouse pastry chef with a once-a-week pop-up ice cream shop serving things like grasshopper ice cream. Good news. Jove is way ahead of you.

Saturday
Homemade Nutella Twinkies for Brunch
PUBLIC DOMAIN

Homemade Nutella Twinkies for Brunch

There’s a new brunch at Public House. It has beer and Bloody Marys, as one would expect. It also has homemade Nutella Twinkies and fried donut french toast as one would... dream about in one’s conceptions of heaven.

Sat-Sun starting Jul 6, 10am-3pm, Public House, 400 N State St, 312-265-1240

Q TIP

Bill Kim Wants to Make Your Lunch

Bill Kim is quite the chef. His recipes for roast chicken with sambai chimichurri and spiced shrimp with tomato salsa and avocado are famous. And he’s even happy to show you how to make them at this live cooking demo. Coincidently, you’re happy to eat them afterward.
