Take One Tricycle. Add Ice Cream. This Happens.

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
Bluegrass music.
Summer breeze.
Tranquility.
See you there.

The end.

Saturday
Oh, Look, It’s Mindy Segal’s Ice Cream Tricycle
TRI, TRI AGAIN

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.

Now rolling, Mindy’s Frozen Treats IceTrike, follow on Twitter for times and locations

Just a Dizzying Array of Very-Much-on-Sale Hats
HEADS UP

Just a Dizzying Array of Very-Much-on-Sale Hats

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.

Sam Eichner likes literature, reality television and his twin cats equally. He has consistently been told he needs a shave since he started growing facial hair.
