Things to do for May 08, 2014
Beer, More Beer and Mother’s Day
The weekend would do anything for love (but it won’t do that).
Location, Location, Location and Pasta
Ceres’ Table has moved from its spot across from St. Boniface Cemetery to—let’s just say it—a better location. It’s on Broadway, it’s bigger, and chef Giuseppe Scurato has revamped the menu, though his linguine skills are still impressive. Some things never change.
Look, It’s a New Brewpub
This little brewpub from the Harvest Moon folks in Evanston has a Cajun-y menu—po’boys, shrimp-and-crawfish étouffée—and beers like the Mad Mouse Ratmandu, their American IPA. You knew the whole Cajun-meets-brewpub boom would hit town sooner or later.
The Hancock Just Got a Lot More Fun
Out-of-town guests. Sometimes you love ’em, sometimes you want to, oh, shove ’em off a building. For the latter, try this: Tilt, the leaning-glass 94th-floor observatory at 360 Chicago (aka the Hancock observatory). It’s basically a movable platform 1,000 feet over Michigan Avenue. It’s enclosed in glass, so no spitting.
Look, a Stadium Full of Beer
There’s going to be a lot of beer at Soldier Field this weekend. A hundred breweries, 500 beers. Oh, sure, there’ll be live bands, too. And hot dogs, burgers and pretzels. Plus, there will be educational beer sessions. So basically, it’s a small tribute to your college years.
Indulge Mom’s Drinking Habits Here
Mother’s Day. Just you and your mom spending time together… But, hey, if Alpana Singh wants to hang out with you two and discuss/pour wine, the more, the merrier. If Mom gets too busy sipping and learning about wine to ask about your love life, we hope that’s okay.
