The Weekender

A Vertical Easter Egg Hunt and a Pair of Opening-Day Parties

Going... going... weekend.

Here’s a New Two-Story Lyfe Kitchen
LYFE, OR SOMETHING LIKE IT

Here’s a New Two-Story Lyfe Kitchen

You vowed to eat healthier this spring. But you had some demands. Like: “I still want sausage-and-egg breakfast sandwiches, margherita flatbreads and grass-fed steaks.” Also: “Beer.” Well, turns out, Lyfe Kitchen just opened a two-story outpost in Streeterville. You should really consider making demands more often.

Saturday
And Now, a Vertical Easter Egg Hunt
GONE HUNTING

And Now, a Vertical Easter Egg Hunt

Easter egg hunts. Been there. Done that. We get it. But this isn’t really an Easter egg hunt. It’s a chance to win things from Nellcôte and Soho House by scaling Brooklyn Boulders’ climbing walls in search of surreptitiously placed raffle tickets. On the day before Easter. Which is a total coincidence.

Apr 4, 11am-midnight, $25, Hold Hunt at Brooklyn Boulders, 100 S Morgan St, 312-268-0002

Some Bittersweet News from Goorin Bros.
THE BROTHERS BRIM

Some Bittersweet News from Goorin Bros.

The bad news: Goorin Bros. in Lakeview is closing. The good news: Before they do, they’re taking 50% off almost every hat in the store, from baseball hats to flat caps to fedoras. The this-could-go-either-way news: You wearing a fedora.

Your Pre-Opening-Day Opening-Day Party
BEAR DOWN

Your Pre-Opening-Day Opening-Day Party

“There’s always next year.” It’s a familiar refrain for any Cubs fan. Not to mention the basis for this classic opening-day celebration at the Cubby Bear, where hopefuls can rejoice with a hip-hop tribute band, $4 tallboys and apparel-related giveaways. Misery loves company. And apparently hip-hop tribute bands.

About That Billy Goat Curse Thing...
IN GOAT COMPANY

About That Billy Goat Curse Thing...

Yesterday, we would’ve told you that Sheffield’s was absolutely not hosting an opening-day party featuring New Holland beer cocktails, attractive cigar girls and curse-lifting menu items like braised-goat tacos and goat meatball sandwiches. But yesterday was April Fools’ Day. So all of this is actually happening. Close one.
