You Deserve a Break (on Denim) Today

“Admitting that your life will vastly improve with a new pair of Italian low-top sneakers, some hand-distressed denim or Todd Snyder gym shorts is the easy part. It’s finding these wonders for up to 60% off that’s hard. Just kidding.” —Meyvn

Ongoing, Spring/Summer Sale at Meyvn, 2627 N Kedzie Ave, 312-852-6012

A Night of Unadulterated Burger-ness
HOP TO

A Night of Unadulterated Burger-ness

This is a fable about a grasshopper and an ant. The grasshopper played all summer. The ant bought Hamburger Hop tickets today before they sold out and spent September 26 eating burgers, drinking beer and having good times. The moral: today, you are a weird ant/grasshopper hybrid.

Friday
Touch. Feel. Smile. Drink Beer.
EVERYBODY SHIRTS

Touch. Feel. Smile. Drink Beer.

Heads up: California-based dapper-slingers Marine Layer have blown into town in an effort to woo you with ridiculously soft fabrics and a carefree attitude. They’re also trying to woo you with an evening of 20% discounts, and gratis beer, wine and cornhole. Dammit, Californians know how to woo.

Saturday
Mix Master Mike Will Be Here. And Beer.
DIG THIS

Mix Master Mike Will Be Here. And Beer.

Spike. Set. Serve. Feel free to go ahead and throw those words around with authority at this daylong volleyball event at North Avenue Beach. They’ll have beer, various bikini-clad persons and Mix Master Mike from the Beastie Boys spinning. Presumably sans bikini, but who knows.

It’s Time the Table Went to the Farm
FARM LEAGUE

It’s Time the Table Went to the Farm

Sometimes you just have to grab a bottle of wine, hop a bus, get out of the city and spend the day at the Slagel Family Farm—watching butchering demos. Drinking lemonade. Having chefs from Evanston’s Found and Ukrainian Village’s Rootstock cook incredible meals for you. You know, farm things.
