The Weekender

Scottie Pippen, Dessert and Your Next Shirt

Oh, weekend. You’re making me blush.

Thursday
Friday
We’re Going to Spring Something on You
JUST BEACHY

We’re Going to Spring Something on You

One encouraging sign for spring: this MCA multi-floor soiree, where you’ll sketch people modeling their finest beachwear, witness a ’60s-style girl group shimmy in white go-go boots, and try to figure out why a guy on a bicycle is singing karaoke. Spring break can get a little weird.

Saturday
Your Next Great Shirt May Be Found Here
SALE-ING

Your Next Great Shirt May Be Found Here

This warehouse sale has things you expect: bargains. Handsomeness in the form of shirts from Stock Mfg Co. That kind of thing. But it also has something else: fine cuts of steak and good cocktails thanks to its unlikely location inside a butcher shop/bar. It’s like a two-for-one sale.

Sunday
Four-Star Chefs Want to Cook You Supper
TWO MANY CHEFS

Four-Star Chefs Want to Cook You Supper

The lineup: Shawn McClain (SAGE in Las Vegas), Mark Steuer (Carriage House), Jason Paskewitz (Gemini Bistro), Tom van Lente (Two).
The mission: Throw a mind-blowing four-course dinner party with whiskey and different cuts of 30-day-aged beef.
The results: TBD, but very promising.

Mar 9, cocktail reception 5pm, dinner 6:30pm, $90, Two, 1132 W Grand Ave, reserve at 312-624-8363

Monday
The Rosebud Folks Go Fishing
HEY, JOE

The Rosebud Folks Go Fishing

Yes, it’s Rosebud’s new business-meeting-appropriate fish place. But if you take clients here and they want oysters, Colorado lamb chops, a steak with lobster Oscar sauce—you’re still in good shape. And here’s something: Bang Bang Pie Shop does dessert. Everybody wants pie.

Opens Mar 10, Joe Fish, 445 N Dearborn St, 312-832-7700

Wednesday
A Cocktail Soiree with NBA Cheerleaders
BULL SESSION

A Cocktail Soiree with NBA Cheerleaders

Randy Brown, Stacey King, Cliff Levingston, Scottie Pippen, Bill Wennington and you have a date to jaw about this whole crazy Crimea situation. No, no. This cocktail party/panel discussion will focus on basketball. Ask them anything. The Luvabulls will be there, too. In case you have pressing cheerleading questions.
