Things to do for August 10, 2016
Looks Like You’re Staying Up All Night
A Beach Party, 4am Rum Drinks and the Most ’90s Lunch EverBy Sam Eichner
There’s weekend in them thar hills.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Ferragamo: Italian shoes.
Never confuse the two again.
