Now, what good would a water- and stain-resistant bag made from military-grade canvas be to you? It’s not like it could handle a trip to the beach. It’s not like it could withstand a spilled coffee on the way to work. It’s not like we’re laying that sarcasm on pretty thick here...
Things to do for June 22, 2016
2am Burgers, Flamingo-Shaped Drinking Vessels and Apartment Number 9’s Closing Sale
The weekend casts a long shadow.
Summer. Late-Night Burgers. It All Makes So Much Sense.
You tried to resist. But something was pulling you inexorably closer from that bar on Milwaukee right to SmallFry. It’s a new late-night burger joint with umami-dusted, triple-cooked fries, oxtail poutine and one hell of a cheeseburger. If we had to guess, it was probably the fries. It’s always the fries.
Tiny Lounge + Big Hatt = This Place
One way to spend the day on the Riverwalk: grab a seat at Tiny Lounge’s just-opened offshoot, Tiny Hatt; order a few barrel-aged drinks and a lobster roll; and while away the afternoon by the water. Another way: there may not be another way.
Saying Goodbye Is Easier with a Sale Like This
How to say goodbye to Apartment Number 9, which is closing after this weekend...
1) Go inside.
2) Procure Paul Smith novelty-print swim shorts, Thom Browne sweatpants or anything else in the store for way less than normal.
4) Maybe stare wistfully at the facade or something.
If It’s a Date Night You Seek...
Strong First Date Idea #173: strolling down the 4800 block of Damen during Ampersand Wine Bar’s one-year-anniversary party, where you’ll drink a selection of French and Italian wines, enjoy smoked-brisket biscuits from Bang Bang Pie and hopefully not feel the need to ask about the other 172 ideas.
Drinking Out of a Copper Flamingo 27 Stories Up
This weekend, you’re going to a Saint-Tropez-themed day party 27 stories up at Roof on theWit. There’ll be tropical house music for dancing. French champagne for toasting. A giant seafood tower for eating. And “flamingo service” for drinking out of a copper flamingo. It’s okay that that’s a thing.
