Friday
Meatballs for Everyone
BALLIN’

Meatballs for Everyone

You swore off the workday meatball sub. Too many napkins. Too many stained white shirts. But then Mondo Meatball decided to start serving lunch, and none of that mattered anymore. This has been the part about meatballs.

Wed-Fri, 11:30am-3pm, Mondo Meatball, 1467 N Milwaukee Ave, 773-278-5959

David Burke’s Little Ice Cream Thing
BURKE DU SOLEIL

David Burke’s Little Ice Cream Thing

As a kid, you’d hear the ice cream truck’s jingle in the distance and race toward the sound. As an adult, you’ll calmly head to Primehouse’s weekly pop-up for to-go cups full of things like root beer sorbet and Goose Island vanilla cream soda. They don’t have a jingle.

Saturday
An Extraordinary Day at Montrose Beach
TO BEACH THEIR OWN

An Extraordinary Day at Montrose Beach

You’re reading the UrbanDaddy Soap Opera Minute. “It was just another day at Montrose Beach, when... someone decided to roast an entire pig. And round up 60 different wines and whiskeys for a tasting. And set up some cornhole. All before romancing your estranged second cousin.” You enjoyed that. You did.

Sunday
Couple Things You Could Do for Dad
PARENTAL GUIDANCE

Couple Things You Could Do for Dad

Competing for your father’s affection come Sunday:

Unite Urban Grill: They’re offering Dad cowboy steaks, plus a gratis bottle of their signature basting sauce.
Oak + Char: This week’s family-style Sunday Supper pays homage to the fatherly activity of all fatherly activities: grilling.
Your sister: She’s so annoying.
