Things to do for October 19, 2016

The Weekend Has More Glorious Pop-Ups Than It Knows What to Do With

And It Needs Your Help

By Sam Eichner

The weekend is not up for debate.

Wednesday
This Sale Is Convinced It’s Still Summer
GET IT WHILE IT’S HOT

This Sale Is Convinced It’s Still Summer

It’s not summer anymore. Kind of feels like it, though. The temperature, sure, but Meyvn also has a week or two left of their summer sale, wherein they’ve taken up to 60% off short-sleeve button-downs, suede-detailed tennis shoes and linen jackets. Patience, fall.

Ongoing, Meyvn, 2627 N Kedzie Ave, 312-852-6012, and online

Friday
Handmade Leather Slip-Ons. Gratis Beer. Winning Combination.
SLIP IT GOOD

Handmade Leather Slip-Ons. Gratis Beer. Winning Combination.

Sabah, the NYC-based company behind a panoply of handmade leather slip-ons, is stopping by Chicago Athletic Association this weekend to show off their new fall line. They’re also bringing gratis drinks. And some finger food. And did we mention the shoes? We did. We did mention those.

Other Dinner Parties Need Not Apply
TARLOW AND BEHOLD

Other Dinner Parties Need Not Apply

Andrew Tarlow, the New York restaurateur largely responsible for that whole “farm-to-table” thing, is hosting a family-style dinner party Friday at Land and Sea Dept.’s studio. You’ll eat his braised short ribs. Drink wine. Share some laughs. And then, you’ll simply leave a happier human being. Hope you’re cool with that.

Saturday
Just a Volcanic-Wine Pop-Up at Eataly
VOLCANIC ERUPTION

Just a Volcanic-Wine Pop-Up at Eataly

Eataly’s really outdone itself this time. The proof?

—Their new pop-up, Vesuviana, revolves around an extensive list of volcanic wines.
—They’ve got many Southern Italian things like hand-cut pasta with seafood ragù and wine-braised octopus.
—That picture of crispy pizza dough balls to your left.

So there.

Sunday
This Brunch Only Happens Once
GILTY AS CHARGED

This Brunch Only Happens Once

This Sunday only, Brendan Sodikoff’s Gilt Bar is joining forces with the Kitchen to make you brunch, which will include things like a Slagel Farm ribeye-and-chicken-egg dish, vanilla buttercream pancakes and breakfast-y gin drinks. You’re probably not alone in thinking they should do this more often.

Oct 23, 10am-3pm, The Kitchen, 316 N Clark St, reserve at 312-836-1300
