This is just a cooler. Just a regular ol’ cooler that’s been outfitted with a built-in blender, a waterproof Bluetooth speaker, a bottle opener, USB outlets and a host of other insane (but also entirely necessary) features. Nothing to see here but your run-of-the-mill speaker/blender/cooler...

Two More Patios, America’s Cup and Osteria Langhe’s New Thing
Sail on, weekend.
From the Fine People Behind Osteria Langhe...
You may walk into the forest-like space of Animale, order something and think: “Oh, it’s just a normal fast-casual Italian situation.” But soon, you’ll see your carbonara panini, or homemade plin, or fries with bone marrow sauce, and the chef personally delivering it. And then you’ll think: “Or not.”
A Former Sepia Chef Is Inviting You to Dinner
Tonight, you and a date will dine in an intimate, high-ceilinged West Loop establishment called Honey’s. You’ll eat marinated swordfish, fava-bean-and-English-pea falafel and a few mango-vinegar oysters. You’ll drink rye-whiskey-and-cava drinks. You’ll talk. You’ll laugh. And then you’ll just go about living your life. Cool?
More Ramen. More Pizza. More Patios.
Two great restaurants, two new locations. Ready...
Furious Spoon: The ramen shop just opened a Logan Square outpost with an outdoor patio and late-night duck ramen.
Parlor Pizza Bar: They’re bringing eight new pizzas (including a kimchi-and-pork-belly pie) to an industrial space plus patio in Wicker Park on Friday.
This has been fun.
Food Trucks. Music. Beer. You Like.
Reasons not to spend Saturday at the Pilsen Food Truck Social:
—You despise snacks from the city’s best food trucks (The Fat Shallot, Boo Coo Roux...).
—You’re against hanging out in Pilsen and drinking beer.
—You’re staunchly anti-live-music.
—You’re no fun.
Should be in the clear here.
It’s Only Right to Watch America’s Cup from a Boat
So there’s this giant sailing race on Lake Michigan this weekend called America’s Cup (perhaps you’ve heard of it). Not to mention, a lunch cruise/party with a nice buffet, DJs and premium views of the race. Point is: it would be silly to partake in one and not the other.
