The Weekender

Two Halloween Parties and Giant Pumpkins Full of Beer

Freddy vs. Weekend

Wednesday
Hi, Billy Reid. You Are Welcome Here.
GOOD REID

Hi, Billy Reid. You Are Welcome Here.

In case you missed it: a Southern clothier by the name of Billy Reid moved into a handsome new space on Randolph Row with his lightweight wool-and-cashmere peacoats, Horween-leather bags and other such rakish things. You should probably behold its majesty and get the full story here.

Many Thousands of Records in Pilsen
FOR THE RECORD

Many Thousands of Records in Pilsen

Next time you’re in Pilsen, swing by 606 Records. Ask for Tim or Drew. If you’re into Roxy Music, they’ll suggest an overlooked performer who sort of sounds like Roxy Music. If you’re not into Roxy Music, that’s cool, too. This is a record store, not a Roxy Music store.

Now open, 606 Records, 1808 S Allport St, 312-585-6106

Thursday
They’ve Got Giant Pumpkins Full of Beer
TAP OUT

They’ve Got Giant Pumpkins Full of Beer

Stop us when it gets too pumpkin-y:

“You’re bringing a date to Public House after work on Thursday to eat pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin fritters, all while drinking gratis pumpkin beers poured from a giant pumpkin tap.”

Sometimes it’s okay to not stop us.

Friday
Halloween-ing Like It’s 1893
SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL

Halloween-ing Like It’s 1893

Don your best old-timey garb for Ampersand’s Devil in the White City cocktail party, inspired by the murderous events of Chicago’s 1893 World’s Fair. Drink “acid vat” punch cocktails. Eat elevated takes on fair foods like funnel cakes and corndogs. Try your best not to be, like, really scared.

Saturday
One Halloween. Two Parties.
SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER

One Halloween. Two Parties.

Halloween’s coming. Here are your parties...

The scary one: A costumed soiree at Vertigo Sky Lounge with Red Rum cocktails, a replica maze and creepy twins. It’s like The Shining, you see.
The groovy one: A ’70s-themed disco at the Freehand/Broken Shaker.

Zombie John Travolta should work for both.
