The Weekender

Food Trucks, Late-Night Movies and an Eight-Course Dinner

Optimus Weekend.

Thursday
Friday
A Lunch Full of Food Trucks
CALL IT A LUNCH

A Lunch Full of Food Trucks

You could pack your lunch tomorrow. A nice ham sandwich or something. Or you could swing through Fair Park, which seems like a better idea. See, it’ll be filled with live music and eight food trucks like BellaTrino, Flatlanders Taco Company and Gandolfo’s Deli. Maybe get a ham sandwich.

It’s Wet. It’s Hot. It’s a Movie.
PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN

It’s Wet. It’s Hot. It’s a Movie.

Ah, summer camp. Good times. Specifically, this 1980s fictional summer camp frequented by the likes of Janeane Garofalo and Paul Rudd that’s portrayed in Wet Hot American Summer. It’s a movie. It’s being screened this weekend at the Angelika. It’s... even better with a few beers.

Saturday
Block Partying with Bishop Cider Co.
CIDEWAYS

Block Partying with Bishop Cider Co.

Block off about, say, seven hours this Saturday, because Bishop Cider Co. is hosting a party. It’s your chance to sample their just-released housemade ciders, fill up a 32-ounce growler, listen to some music and eat some Zoli’s pizza. So... yeah, seven hours sounds about right.

Sunday
A Pool Party 16 Stories Up
WET ’N WILD

A Pool Party 16 Stories Up

This time of year, poolside cocktails are a necessary implement in the fight against summer. So this Sunday, head 16 floors up to the W’s Wet Deck. There will be DJs, frozen drinks and a real lack of people dressed for winter.

Monday
Eating by the Fire at FT33
BURN NOTICE

Eating by the Fire at FT33

On Monday, FT33’s Matt McCallister and guest chef Brandon Baltzley are teaming up to cook you an eight-course dinner over a live fire. Because... sure, why not. Also, there will be no electricity. Just candles. Maybe they forgot to pay the bill.

Jul 21, 7pm, $105, FT33, 1617 Hi Line Dr, Ste 250, reserve at 214-741-2629
