Things to do for June 08, 2016

The Weekender

Two More Patios, America’s Cup and Osteria Langhe’s New Thing

Sail on, weekend.

Wednesday
From the Fine People Behind Osteria Langhe...
ANIMALE HOUSE

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.”

Thursday
A Former Sepia Chef Is Inviting You to Dinner
HI, HONEY

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?

Now open, Honey’s, 1111 W Lake St, 312-877-5929

Friday
More Ramen. More Pizza. More Patios.
TWO FOR TWO

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.

Saturday
Food Trucks. Music. Beer. You Like.
SOCIAL EXPERIMENT

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.

Sunday
It’s Only Right to Watch America’s Cup from a Boat
THE VIEW

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.

Jun 11-12, 12:30-3:30pm (boards at noon), $250-$337 (includes GA for Race Village), departs from Navy Pier, 600 E Grand Ave, 866-305-2469, tickets here
