Tequila Popsicles in Ukrainian Village

We want to bring this new taqueria to your attention. It’s got pork belly tacos and tequila popsicles. It’s got buñuelos, which are cinnamon chips. It’s got a Mexican-chocolate milkshake named after Batman’s grandma, which we don’t really get but there it is anyway.

Now open, El Metro, 1959 W Chicago Ave, 312-666-6376

A New Era for Irish Bar Comestibles
IRISH YOU WERE HERE

A New Era for Irish Bar Comestibles

Once upon a time, Chicago Irish bars didn’t really do Irish beer all that well. The Hidden Shamrock helped change that. And after closing for an extended makeover—shipshape inside, by the way—it’s now doing the same for food. Scotch eggs. House-cured salmon. Kale chips. Ignore that last part.

Saturday
Your New Shirt Is from a Bike Shop
HOUSE RULES

Your New Shirt Is from a Bike Shop

Sometimes a bike shop is also a coffee shop. Take Heritage Bicycles, for example. And sometimes a bike shop that’s also a coffee shop is also... a Glass House Shirtmakers pop-up shop with up to $60 off dress shirts, plus a line of pocket squares. This: one of those times.

Two Days of Bayless and More Tequila
MOD FELLOWS

Two Days of Bayless and More Tequila

Rick Bayless. Curtis Duffy. Some chefs from New York and Mexico. A two-day event with all of the above. Sounds... promising. So start with a friendly Top Chef–style competition/party on Saturday, followed by a multicourse fiesta at Topolobampo on Sunday. Tequila is located everywhere in between.

Sep 13, 9am-4pm, $95, Kendall College, 900 N Branch St; Sep 14, 6pm, $195-$275, Topolobampo, 445 N Clark St, 312-661-1434, tickets here

Time to Hang Out with Perry Farrell
GREEN MEANS GO

Time to Hang Out with Perry Farrell

Perry Farrell. He’s that guy from Jane’s Addiction. He’s that guy who started Lollapalooza. He’s that guy you’re partying next to at this year’s Green Tie Ball, replete with over 55 restaurants (Nightwood, Mercadito...), open bars, raffles and a Gatsby theme. Well, near, at least.

Sep 13, 6:30pm-1am, $150-$250 ($175-$275 at door), Green Tie Ball, UIC Parking Lot 6, 1135 S Union St, 312-527-9621 ext 224
