Warby Parker Brings a Bus to Town

That yellow school bus parked on Division is Warby Parker’s new pop-up shop. Go in, have a seat, browse their library, try on a few frames. Then tomorrow, swing by their party at Salvage One for gratis cocktails and a performance by Blah Blah Blah. No glasses required.

Shop open through Oct 13 at W Division St and N Hoyne Ave; party Sep 5, 7-10pm, Salvage One, 1840 W Hubbard St

BLOCK ROCKIN’

Your Hideout Block Party Agenda

The Hideout Block Party is back, and they’ve brought Neko Case, Mavis Staples and Young the Giant for your listening pleasure. And making a special guest appearance for your finger-licking pleasure: mini barbecue pulled-pork sandwiches from new barbecue joint County.

Saturday
Like the Olympics. With Mai Tais.
THE JUNGLE

Like the Olympics. With Mai Tais.

Friendly competition never hurt anyone. And it doesn’t get friendlier than this event. You’ll make mai tais. You’ll improvise. You’ll do something confidential in a kiddie pool. You’ll then decamp to a secret location for a jungle-themed party. Start stretching now.

Green Tuxedos. Willy Wonka. You.
SEEING GREEN

Green Tuxedos. Willy Wonka. You.

Lots of people do black tie well. But nobody does green tie like you. So you should be in your element at this annual green-tie ball. And this year has a Willy Wonka theme. Which hopefully means Everlasting Gobstoppers in martini form.

Sep 7, $150, A. Finkl & Sons Co., 2011 N Southport Ave, 312-540-9930, tickets here
