The Weekender

The ’85 Bears, a Pig Roast and So Much Beer

What the weekend wants, the weekend gets.

Thursday
A Tiny Den of Sushi on Webster
MINI

A Tiny Den of Sushi on Webster

Coziness. That’s what this weekend needs more of. Also: beef ramen. Get both at this new seven-table Asian BYOB joint in Lincoln Park. There’s just enough space for a sushi chef, you and a date. Oh, and bring a bottle of sake. They’ll make room.

Now open, Kameya, 806 W Webster Ave, 773-935-3474

Payton, McMahon... and a Buffet

Payton, McMahon... and a Buffet

If you’re interested in listening to the author of a book on the ’85 Bears, meeting Bears offensive lineman Kyle Long, feasting on an enormous buffet and touring Soldier Field, we recommend you show up at Soldier Field tonight. We know: we had you at ’85 Bears. And buffet.

Nov 7, 6pm, $50, Soldier Field, 1410 Museum Campus Dr, tickets at the door and here

Friday
Just a Motorcycle-Themed Pig Roast
WHAT A TRIUMPH

Just a Motorcycle-Themed Pig Roast

The good people of Triumph Motorcycles have partnered with Isle of Man for a pop-up shop, featuring leather goods, racing gear and some vintage motorcycles. To kick it off, though: a party with some scotch and a pig roast. Somewhere, Steve McQueen silently nods his approval.

Beer. So Much F**king Beer.
BEER BASH

Beer. So Much F**king Beer.

This weekend, you can get locked in a room with 60 microbrewers pouring more than 100 kinds of beer. Well, okay, you won’t be so much locked in, as voluntarily walking around with a glass in your hand and asking for samples. It’s like trick-or-treating for grown-ups.

Nov 8-9, $40-$85, Lacuna Artist Studios, 2150 S Canalport Ave, tickets here 

Saturday
Your Brunch: Now with Hot Toddies
EYE OPENING

Your Brunch: Now with Hot Toddies

If you’ve always felt that Kanela Breakfast Club on Wells could do with some warm, alcohol-filled breakfast drinks, well, they finally agree with you. They’ve now got vodka caramel-apple cider and rum-spiked pumpkin lattes. Better still: a liquor license to serve them to you.
