Things to do for September 18, 2014

The Weekender

New Mexican Restaurant. New Edgewater Bar. New Weekend.

The weekend will only increase in value.

Thursday
Your New Corner Joint in Edgewater
BARREL FLYNN

Your New Corner Joint in Edgewater

Edgewater’s new Barrelman Tavern, a little corner joint in the finest Chicago tradition, doesn’t have food. What it does have: 16 tap handles, 30 or so whiskeys and plenty of Bears action on TV. Oh, and whiskey barrel tables. Who needs food when you have whiskey barrel tables...

WHERE THOU ART

Go Here, Make Your Walls Feel Better

Look around. Do you see any Picassos on the wall? Any Koons sculptures nearby? If the answer is no: head to Navy Pier this weekend for Art Expo, where you can peruse art from over 140 galleries from around the globe and correct that. If yes, well... keep up the good work.

Sep 18-21, hours vary, Expo Chicago, Navy Pier, 600 E Grand Ave, 312-867-9220

Saturday
Giant Sandwiches, Meet Humboldt Park
CEMI-CHARMED LIFE

Giant Sandwiches, Meet Humboldt Park

Cemitas Puebla makes sandwiches in Humboldt Park. Big ones. Crazy-big ones. And as sandwich fate would have it, they’re expanding with this slick Fulton Market space. It’s got Day of the Dead skulls, ever so many sesame seed buns and rumors of margaritas on tap. You love a good margarita rumor.

Redford, DiCaprio and Now: You
GATS’ ENTERTAINMENT

Redford, DiCaprio and Now: You

Crossing Tavern in Lincoln Park wants you to go ahead and slip into something more Gatsby-y for their West Egg–themed Roaring ’20s soiree. Unless heaping piles of caviar, fresh oysters, steak Diane, flappers, tuxedos and live jazz aren’t your thing. But they are, so you’re good.

Sunday
There’s Fried Chicken. You Should Go.
UNO DOSE

There’s Fried Chicken. You Should Go.

The new installment of Dose Market offers gear by the likes of Apartment Number 9 and Artfully Disheveled, food by the likes of Parson’s Chicken & Fish and the Eastman Egg Company, and cocktails by the likes of La Sirena Clandestina. That’s a lot of likes outside of an Instagram context.

Sep 21, 10am-5pm, $8 ($10 at door), Dose Market, Morgan Manufacturing, 401 N Morgan St, 312-972-8400
