Things to do for July 27, 2016
Just Look at This Burger
More Umami Burgers. More Seafood. More Questlove.By Sam Eichner
Never weekend on an empty stomach.
We Just Got Another Umami Burger, and That’s Okay
See that burger to your left? Yeah, that one. It’s a Monte Cristo burger with prosciutto, gruyère fondue and a vanilla-custard-soaked, deep-fried bun. Oh, and it’s available right this moment at the just-opened West Loop location of Umami Burger. You’re so very welcome.
Seafood in a Bag. Popsicles. Summer.
You could always use another BYOB place where they throw a bunch of spicy Cajun seafood in a bag for your and your friend’s unabashed feasting pleasure. Especially when that place also has garlic noodles, fried calamari and cookies-and-cream popsicles. Such is the case with the Crab Pad. Hence, these words.
Your Old Bag Never Stood a Chance
This weekend, Timbuk2 is taking up to 70% off their particularly dapper messengers, totes and backpacks. So apologize to your old bag. Tell the thing it’s done a good job holding your stuff. That it’s not it, it’s you. Or do literally nothing because bags don’t have feelings.
A Rooftop Day Party Where Questlove DJs
Two Lollapalooza-related shows/parties are happening at the Virgin Hotel’s rooftop bar on Sunday.
If you’re not going to Lolla: You can dance to Questlove DJing in the afternoon.
If you are going to Lolla: You can catch Haim’s DJ set at night.
If you’d rather stay home: Maybe don’t?
A World-Champion Bartender Is Involved
Left Coast Food + Juice is now the only restaurant to sell world-champion bartender Charles Joly’s line of bottled cocktails. That’s why, this Sunday, they’ll host Joly himself, a DJ and you on their patio, along with gratis samples of the good stuff. Also, plenty of juice. That stuff’s good, too.
