You Know, This Seems Really Timely

Say you’re in the market for a new sailboat. Go ahead. Say it. Just keep saying it again and again until you believe it. Now go to this boat show where you can buy a sailboat and also learn to sail. Which totally comes in handy with new sailboats.

Then again, maybe you don’t need a whole boat. Maybe just the deck of one. As long as it’s rigged with DJs, cocktails and the very real possibility of long-legged beautiful people in sailor hats. Sounds like this dance party on the Anita Dee II is just the thing for you.

Get in the Proper World Cup Headspace
BRAZIL OF RIGHTS

Get in the Proper World Cup Headspace

Next week, you’ll experience a sudden interest in soccer. Something to do with the World Cup. This week, you’ll have a sudden interest in shrimp empanadas, caipirinhas and live samba music. Something to do with Grand Tour offering a surfeit of all those. Okay, a lot to do with that.

Jun 6, 13 and 20, live samba music 8:30pm, Grand Tour, 2434 W Montrose Ave, 872-208-7246

PRINCE AND REPEAT

Uh-Oh, It’s Prince’s Birthday

Dear Prince: Just when we thought you couldn’t get any Prince-ier, you go and carry a bejeweled scepter to the French Open. Bravo, sir. So if anyone deserves an extra-funky birthday party featuring the Prince Experience, the leader in Prince simulacra, it’s you. Happy birthday, you marvelous, lacy, purple little Gemini.

Sunday
Your Beer-Fueled Backyard Barbecue
THAT’S YOUR ’CUE

Your Beer-Fueled Backyard Barbecue

Maybe you knew about the back garden at Sportman’s Club. Maybe not. Either way, they’re putting it to great use this weekend by inviting some friends over. PQM is bringing the tri-tip and baked beans, Local Option is bringing the beer, and you’re bringing your unerring radar for good backyard parties.
