Things to do for July 23, 2015

The Weekender

Wine, Wings and Hemingway

My name is Weekend. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

Thursday
Wings and Whiskey and Lincoln Park
LINC’D IN

Wings and Whiskey and Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park’s got two new residents:

From New Jersey: New York Wing Factory’s first Midwest outpost for beer and twice-fried wings.
From Wicker Park: The second location of Lokal, a place where anything from Nutella fries to vodka flights is possible.

That was your cue to be hospitable.

A ’WICH IN TIME

An Au Cheval Vet’s New Sandwich Kingdom

You’re in one of your moods. That’s okay. We won’t bother you. Except to say that Wyler Road is now open (with a patio) to sate your summertime cravings via fried-clam-belly-and-bacon sandwiches, housemade fernet ice cream floats and... What’s that? Everything’s better now? Huh. Go figure.

Now soft-open (grand-opening Jul 29), Wyler Road, 3581 W Belden Ave, 773-661-0675

Friday
A Very Hemingway Feast at Eataly
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ERNEST

A Very Hemingway Feast at Eataly

In Conversation with the Ghost of Ernest Hemingway:

UD: Eataly is hosting a dine-around on Friday in honor of your 116th birthday. All the stops are inspired by your work. There’ll be live readings, wine, music, over 40 different menu items...
EH: And bull fights?
UD: No.
EH: Cowards.

Saturday
New Place. Bunch of Wine in There.
WINE OF THE TIMES

New Place. Bunch of Wine in There.

Well, well... look what we’ve got here. A cozy little wine bar called Ampersand. Trotter’s former pastry chef is behind it. So is a Moto vet. And they’re cooking up Calabrian pork cheek and burrata with duck prosciutto to complement their choice selection of fine wines. See. Wine bar.

Sunday
Pizza and Animal House at Boiler Room
ANIMAL PLANET

Pizza and Animal House at Boiler Room

When Animal House was first released, Roger Ebert called it “A boisterous collegiate romp. The sort of film you’re wont to watch outside with a slice of pizza in one hand and a PBR in the other.”*

*We made that up, yet... still wholly relevant to your Sunday night at Boiler Room.
