Looks Like You’re Staying Up All Night

A Beach Party, 4am Rum Drinks and the Most ’90s Lunch Ever

By Sam Eichner

There’s weekend in them thar hills.

Wednesday
And the Poke Bowls Just Keep On Coming
ALOHA STATE

And the Poke Bowls Just Keep On Coming

Pokiology is a new fast-casual restaurant in Uptown where they combine the Hawaiian-style poke of your choice with sushi-like toppings before placing them in a convenient to-go bowl. None of which likely needed to be explained just then.

Now open, Pokiology, 4600 N Magnolia Ave, Ste C, 773-961-7624

Friday
Burgers, Fries and Saved by the Bell
TO THE MAX

Burgers, Fries and Saved by the Bell

All of your burning Saved by the Bell–related questions will be answered during Friday’s special luncheon at the so-themed pop-up diner, where you’ll enjoy their Bayside burger and fries, an episode screening and a Q&A with the show’s former head writer. It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for since... maybe never.

Saturday
Meet Your New 4am Bar. Its Name Is Remedy.
UP ALL NIGHT

Meet Your New 4am Bar. Its Name Is Remedy.

They say: Nothing good ever happens after 2am.
We say: What about Remedy? It’s your new neighborhood 4am bar in Wicker Park with pineapple-and-rum drinks, big front windows that open up onto the sidewalk and a jukebox, should you want to dance.
You say: You had me at rum drinks.

Sunday
Classic Vinyl and Rosé on a Rooftop Deck
LET THE GREAT WORLD SPIN

Classic Vinyl and Rosé on a Rooftop Deck

There’s this new thing happening at that convivial rooftop deck, Streeterville Social, called Vinyl Sundays. The idea being, on Sunday afternoons, they’ll have a DJ spin some classic vinyl for your musical enjoyment, plus they’ll have half-price bottles of rosé. That last part wasn’t in the name, but it’s just as important.

Monday
Spiaggia Is Throwing a Beach Party
FERR’ ENOUGH

Spiaggia Is Throwing a Beach Party

Ferragosto: An Italian holiday celebrated by Spiaggia at Oak Street Beach. Includes a DJ, an oyster-and-crudo bar, whole roasted lamb, fresh gelato and good-looking people lit by the softly setting sun.
Ferragamo: Italian shoes.

Never confuse the two again.
