Father’s Day. Coming soon to... a father near you. Thankfully, we’ve put together some Perks for just the occasion. Plus, here’s some eye-catching liquor-related charts (all the whiskey, one chart) and a sleek charger that extends your phone’s battery life by a week. Or a really Instagram-heavy weekend.
Things to do for May 29, 2014
Tacos: Check. Rooftop Party: Check. Weekend: Check.
Oh, now you’ve gone and got weekend all over everything.
Your Royal Rooftop Soiree Awaits
They say charity begins at home. They are so, so wrong. Charity begins on a rooftop lounge in River North. Selfless, a new charitable-giving app, is throwing a soiree at the Kensington, which includes sushi, sliders, cocktails and that unmistakable feeling that you’re kinda sorta saving the world.
Get your picnic basket. Your wine. Your blanket. Your... glow sticks. Whatever it is you need to enjoy music with beeps and blips. See, Loops and Variations, Millennium Park’s new summer electronic music series, debuts tonight with some dance-y electro experimentalists out of LA called Yacht. No floaties necessary.
It’s a Great Weekend to Love Tacos
Lots of big festivals out there to distract you this weekend. Take this one, for example. Its purpose is to recognize the cultural contributions of the taco on society. So expect fancy tacos. Also expect gorditas and pambazos and DJs and live music, and that’ll do.
Here, Smell This. Then, Drink This.
Tomorrow night, your nose is requested at the Underground. Specifically, you’ll need to smell something new from Alfred Lane, makers of fine solid-form cologne. Then you’ll need to swirl some whiskey. Then you’ll need to actually drink the whiskey. Hell, you may even want to.
Sausage Blowing: Not What You Think...
... unless you think it’s a race involving blowing a “sausage wheel” across a finish line. Which, at LagerJam at least, it is. You’ll receive all the artisanal sausages and beers (Bell’s, Revolution...) you require to get you in the appropriate race-day frame of mind. Whatever frame of mind that is.
