Things to do for September 03, 2015

The Weekender

Oysters. Dancing. Champagne. Labor Day.

The weekend’s going for a hat trick.

Thursday
Friday
Everybody, Relax. Gin Is on the Way.
WHO’S THE SAUCE

Everybody, Relax. Gin Is on the Way.

We don’t know where you’re going this weekend. We don’t know what you’re doing. But we do know that if someone came to your location (any location) and gave you bottles of alcohol, you’d probably enjoy it. This new-to-Chicago app makes that happen. It already knows you so well.

Saturday
A Not-Insignificant Sale at Haberdash
FALL GUYS

A Not-Insignificant Sale at Haberdash

You think the summer gave you all it could give, but it’s got another trick up its sleeve: up to 70% off at Haberdash. Shirts. Sweaters. Denim. Chinos. Henleys. All that stuff. Plus shorts, because summer’s not over until your knees say it is.

Vintage Cars and Modern Beer
THE MORE YOU ROW

Vintage Cars and Modern Beer

Motor Row used to be the area in the South Loop where you’d go to buy a car. This weekend, you’ll go there to look at vintage cars, sample more than a dozen local brews and dance to Darryl McDaniels from Run-DMC. Progress.

Sunday
Couple Labor Day Parties for You
LABOR PLAY

Couple Labor Day Parties for You

A tale of two parties:

Day:
A Longman & Eagle–backed block party featuring sloppy joes, beer, sausages and dancing in the street.
Night: A Kensington-backed nautical party with yachting attire, champagne, bikinis and sailor hats.

It was the best of times. Period.

Monday
An Oyster Fest Prep Course
SHELL OR HIGH WATER

An Oyster Fest Prep Course

The oysters are half-price in Shaw’s bar all week. They’ll also have live music. It’s all in honor of Oyster Fest, culminating next Friday with a blowout featuring a slurping contest, champagne and St. Lucia. The band, not the island.
