Things to do for July 06, 2016
New Fat Rice. New Angry Crab. New Beachy Bar.
This means weekend.
Fat Rice Is Getting... Fatter
This week’s schedule of Fat Rice–related activity:
Today: Their new bakery opens with Sri Lankan curried corned-beef buns and two new large-party tasting menus.
Friday: The Ladies’ Room, a 1920s-Macau-themed cocktail lounge, will exist in their waiting room.
Sunday: New seafood-centric brunch specials abound.
Monday: Is unfortunately just Monday.
If Logan Square Had a Beach
The beach has sand, bonfires, good times and the lake. Surf, the Emporium guys’ aggressively beachy new bar in Logan Square, has late-night pizza, tequila- and rum-focused draft cocktails and summery bench swings. We’re not saying we’re comparing the two, but if we were, it’d probably be a wash.
A Very Chicago Evening Indeed
Remember that whole Disco Demolition thing, when crazy rock-and-roll-loving fans destroyed disco records during a double header at old Comiskey Park? Well, now there’s a book about it. And a book signing involving an exhibition of relevant photos on Friday. And an after-party at Maria’s. That last part feels important.
Angry Crab Is Coming to Wicker Park. What a Relief.
Angry Crab is moving to Wicker Park on Saturday to set up a new shop. On their packing list:
—Giant Cajun-seafood-ready plastic bags.
—More chairs, seeing as this place is bigger than the original.
—A gleeful disregard toward anything resembling table manners.
Can’t forget the garlic fries.
This Sunday’s Looking a Lot Like Saturday
Sorry. Know you were planning a relaxing afternoon this Sunday, but there’s this new post-brunch day party at RM Champagne Salon involving a silly amount of oysters and champagne, plus a healthy mix of funk, disco, house and soul music. Hey, there’s always next Sunday...
