Things to do for September 11, 2014
Tequila Popsicles and Perry Farrell All in One Weekend
All for one, one for weekend.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
