Things to do for April 23, 2009

The Weekender

Naked Sushi, Kobe-Fat Fries and a Zombie Pub Crawl

The weekend is growing a playoff beard.

Thursday
Kobe Fries at Ajasteak
FRIES

Kobe Fries at Ajasteak

You heard it here first: Kobe-fat fries officially become the new duck-fat fries when this temple of Waygu debuts them tonight as part of a swanky new bar menu. If you say "UrbanDaddy," your table gets an order on the house with your first round of cocktails.

Daddy Hookup through Sunday, Ajasteak, 660 N. State St (at Erie), 312-202-6050

Rock the Tot at Bar Louie
TOTS

Rock the Tot at Bar Louie

You're always up for a challenge, and a tater-tot eating contest certainly seems like one to us. You'll have six minutes to down as many of the fried nuggets as you can for a chance at a year's supply of tots—and a lifetime's supply of glory.

Friday
Naked Sushi at Y Bar
SNAPPER

Naked Sushi at Y Bar

We know you're a big fan of ancient Japanese rituals, so for that reason only you'll want to check out Y Bar tomorrow night, when your maki will be served off the nearly naked body of Magen Lugo, a bright young psychology major who also happens to be a former Playboy Coed of the Month. Have fun with all that culture.

RSVP here for no cover, sushi 10:30-11:30pm, Apr 24, 224 W. Ontario, 312-787-2355

Saturday
Zombie Pub Crawl
UNDEAD

Zombie Pub Crawl

Last week Snuggies, this week: zombies. Andersonville's stretch of Clark will look like the Thriller video Saturday afternoon as legions of costumed revelers travel from Simon's to Mary's Attic and everywhere in between searching for braaainnss! Or cold beer.

$15 ($20 day of), 2pm, Apr 25, crawl starts at US Bank, 5340 N. Clark St, register here

Monday
3116 Club Opens
Rock

3116 Club Opens

Watch out, Pilsen and Bridgeport—Garfield Park just may be the newest hipster hotbed with the opening of this scruffy BYOB all-night rock club/art hangout/performance space. The kickoff party offers four bands, free parking and plenty of mixers, in case you run out of Grolsch.

Doors 8pm, bands 10pm, Apr 27, 3116 W. Lake St (near Albany), 773-313-3912
