THE NIGHT OF

Everything You Like Is Here

Stop us when you read something you don’t like: Revolution beer, Korean tacos, Thai fried-chicken sandwiches, combing through records, gin-infused aftershave, live music, having fun, all of these things at the Sauced Summer Night Market. Fine, we’ll stop ourselves.

’TOOTH FAIRY

If Their Dinner Is Anything Like Their Breakfast...

By now, you’ve probably heard of the legendary lox-and-bagel operation at Snaggletooth. What you probably haven’t heard: tomorrow night, they’re trying their hand at dinner for the first time (it’s BYO) with some oysters, tuna crudo and various small plates. Godspeed, Snaggletooth. We believe in you.

Jul 21, 5-7pm, Snaggletooth, 2819 N Southport Ave, 773-899-4711

WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS

Day Date Idea Number Whatever: This.

Future reviews of this year’s Andersonville Summer Sidewalk Sale...

Your Date: It was delightful. We hit the bookstore, rummaged through funky clothes at Crossroads Trading, bought an interesting-looking furnishing from Mercantile M and finished the day with a glass of wine at Appellation. A+.
You: Really great date idea.

This Liquor Store Has a Secret. Hint: It’s a Bar.

Next time you’re at Red Star Liquors, buying beer or whatever, you may find yourself wandering through a cooler door that leads not to a cooler, but to a low-key lounge in a century-old building called the Walk-In, replete with rum Negronis and bonded bourbon drinks. You’ll drink some. The end?

Now open, The Walk-In at Red Star Liquors, 2727 N Milwaukee Ave, 773-697-8726
