Things you don’t hate: beef jerky crafted in small batches from all-natural ingredients; flavors like sweet sriracha BBQ, maple buffalo bacon and “Reaper” made with the hottest pepper on earth. This stuff could do wonders for your tailgating game...

Take One Tricycle. Add Ice Cream. This Happens.
Adult Summer Camp, Mindy Segal’s Ice Cream Tricycle and One Big Hat SaleBy Sam Eichner
The weekend’s going for the gold.
Bridgeport Gets Tacos. Lincoln Park Gets Juice. You Get Both.
Bridgeport and Lincoln Park are extra happy this week. Here’s why...
Antique Taco: The beloved Wicker Park taqueria’s new Bridgeport location has their classics, plus chorizo-octopus tacos and mezcal punch.
Owen + Alchemy: The fancy Logan Square cold-pressed juice place is opening their Lincoln Park pop-up today.
Sorry, other neighborhoods.
Camping Now Involves a Concert and Chop Shop BBQ
Friday night, you and some friends are going camping on Northerly Island. You’ll set up a tent, eat Chop Shop’s BBQ, drink beer and take in a concert from Waxahatchee. Then, in the morning, you’ll do yoga and brunch. It’s only glamping if you call it glamping.
How the Hideout Does Summer Picnics
And now, an unnecessarily informative poem...
The Hideout at 6pm, Friday.
Picnic basket packed by Local Foods,
With cider, meat and other assorted delights. You
Sit on their porch. Hold someone’s hand. Hum to Big Sadie’s
See you there.
Oh, Look, It’s Mindy Segal’s Ice Cream Tricycle
Walking along the 606 on nights and weekends this month, you might spy a suspicious-looking tricycle carrying Mindy Segal’s frozen treats. Do not be alarmed. Simply approach the vehicle, ask for a PB&J or malted milk chocolate fudgsicle and be on your way. Also, eat those things. Those things tend to melt.

Straw hats. Handmade wool fedoras. Italian flatcaps. A golden baseball hat. Sure, we could go on listing the nice-looking 40% off offerings from the Goorin Bros. summer sale all day. But then it would grow dark. And you’d still be hatless. Which would be sad.
