Things to do for May 08, 2014

The Weekender

Beer, More Beer and Mother’s Day

The weekend would do anything for love (but it won’t do that).

Thursday
Location, Location, Location and Pasta
CERES OF FORTUNATE EVENTS

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
EARLY FROTH

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.

Saturday
The Hancock Just Got a Lot More Fun
LEAN IN

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.

Opens May 10, 9am, Tilt at 360 Chicago, John Hancock Center, 875 N Michigan Ave

Look, a Stadium Full of Beer
BEER DOWN

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.

Sunday
Indulge Mom’s Drinking Habits Here
MOTHER SIP

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.
