Let the weekend be your umbrella.

Your New Hyde Park Upstairs Party Pad
PROM NIGHT

Your New Hyde Park Upstairs Party Pad

Yes, a weekend is its own reward. But let’s sweeten the pot anyway: imagine yourself sipping a carbonated daiquiri and listening to some vintage soul music at this recurring party on the second-floor patio of Hyde Park’s latest nightspot, Promontory. Yep, not bad either.

Thu-Sat starting Aug 21, 5-8pm, The Promontory, 5311 S Lake Park Ave, 312-801-2100

Friday
Hail the New Sausage King of Chicago
JUST ENCASED

Hail the New Sausage King of Chicago

Not that you’re a braggart or anything, but you’re something of a connoisseur when it comes to good meat. Well, at Sausagefest, nine sausage makers will bring out their best wursts in the hopes that you’ll anoint them Sausage King. Also, there are live rock bands. Also also, we said “braggart.”

Aug 22-24, $5 suggested donation, St. Michael in Old Town, 1633 N Cleveland Ave, more info here

Celebrating Maria’s with a Disco Party

Four years ago, old Bridgeport “slashie” Maria’s entered a new era by championing local beer, welcoming skinny jeans and hosting rare vinyl disco parties. Commemorate that brave decision with a vintage disco party fueled by obscure small-batch beers and a patio barbecue. Because how else would you do it...

WAY TO HUEVO

Early Bird Gets the Chilaquiles

If you’re serving Mexican brunch, good chilaquiles are not optional. Más, that sexy spot in the West Loop, must be pretty confident about theirs, because the first 50 people to show to their new brunch this Saturday and Sunday get chilaquiles on the house. So, probably not you.
