Things to do for September 30, 2015

The Weekender

Questlove, Vermouth and More Hot Doug’s

Weekend is playing at your house, your house.

Wednesday
Hot Doug’s Just Won’t Go Away
THE SOHN ALSO RISES

Hot Doug’s Just Won’t Go Away

Just when you thought Hot Doug’s was gone for good, Honey Butter Fried Chicken goes and crafts you a limited-time homage to Doug Sohn, Chicago’s greatest champion of encased meats. It’s basically a fried-chicken sandwich/Chicago-style hot dog hybrid. Which simply makes so much sense.

Thursday
Sandwich Comeback Story of the Year
THERE AND BACK AGAIN

Sandwich Comeback Story of the Year

Cemitas Puebla started serving their traditional Poblano-style sandwiches (avocado, pork, oaxaca cheese and homemade chipotle sauce) in Humboldt Park. Then they moved to Fulton Market. Now they’re heading back west with a new yearlong pop-up. It’s the circle of sandwiches.

Saturday
Find Records. Drink Beer. Eat Pork.
ON THE RECORD

Find Records. Drink Beer. Eat Pork.

You’re going to require some nourishment if you want to effectively comb through the massive selection of new and vintage CDs and LPs on display at Schubas this Saturday. Some food. Some beer. A sampler from the suckling pig roast that’ll be going on outside. That last one seems especially pertinent.

Wherein Questlove Is Your DJ
QUEST LAID PLANS

Wherein Questlove Is Your DJ

Questlove is...

A) A New York Times best-selling author.
B) Bandleader for the Roots.
C) Jimmy Fallon’s musical sidekick.
D) The man who’s graciously decided to DJ an after-party at the ever-swanky Studio Paris this Saturday night.

Seems unnecessary to have an “all of the above” option at this point.

Sunday
Here Comes the New-Brunches Part
GOOD AFTERNOON

Here Comes the New-Brunches Part

The state of brunch without Bom Bolla and Bar Siena: Not enough vermouth, not enough bacon.
The state of brunch with Bom Bolla and Bar Siena: Half-off vermouths and bacon confit at the former. Housemade Bloodys and a cured-bacon-and-pork-sausage breakfast sandwich at the latter.

With for the win.
