Things to do for August 27, 2015

The Weekender

Fire Spinners, New Brunches and On-Demand Massages

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Weekend

Thursday
An Alley Full of Acrobats and Fire
TO WIT

An Alley Full of Acrobats and Fire

Should you happen upon the clandestine alleyway adjacent to theWit later tonight, you’d be surprised to discover the place alive with visual artists, tarot card readers, fire spinners, acrobats and a bunch of random people having fun. So make sure you happen upon it.

Friday
You’re a Person of Many Masseuses
THERE’S THE RUB

You’re a Person of Many Masseuses

In as little as one hour from now, you could be on the receiving end of an in-home deep-tissue, Swedish, sports or couples massage from a licensed masseuse. All you have to do is download this new-to-Chicago app called Zeel. And then open your door when they knock.

Saturday
A Nice Stop for You and Your Date
CHOP HOUSE

A Nice Stop for You and Your Date

Your date: “Do you mind if I randomly shop somewhere?”
You: “Not at all. Let’s hit this big sale at Chop Shop so I can get things from Glass House Shirtmakers and Stock Mfg. Co.”
Your date: “Thanks?”

Sunday
Your New-Sunday-Brunch Report
ANY GIVEN SUNDAY

Your New-Sunday-Brunch Report

Soon, football season will commence, and you won’t have time for those long Sunday brunches. So before that happens, hit the new ones at: 1) the Duck Inn for duck confit hash, and 2) the Hampton Social for enough vodka-rosé cocktails to make you forget Jay Cutler’s still quarterback. Sports joke.

Ramen vs. Ramen
RAM’ COM

Ramen vs. Ramen

In one corner: It’s chef Hunter Moore of the inimitable Parson’s Chicken & Fish.
In the other corner: It’s chefs Jennifer Jackson and Justin Tootla of Thank You.
In no corner in particular: It’s... you, slurping down their ramen and enjoying cocktails from Lost Lake. Classic you.

Aug 30, 4-9pm, $35, Ramen Battle: Land vs. Sea Dept. at Yusho, 2853 N Kedzie Ave, reserve at 773-904-8588
