DAMN FINE

An Essential Twin Peaks Refresher at Thalia Hall

Break out your favorite log because, yes, Twin Peaks is almost back after a 26-year hiatus. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Thalia Hall is screening the season two finale and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, complete with a live synth player. You knew there’d be a live synth player.

May 17, 7pm, no cover, Thalia Hall, 1807 S Allport St, 312-526-3851

Thursday
Goodbye, Branca Bar. Hello, Pipedream.
DREAM ON

Goodbye, Branca Bar. Hello, Pipedream.

The latest pop-up concept to take over Emporium Logan Square’s neighbor is a neon unicorn wonderland dreamed up by the Pipeworks guys. Obviously, there will be beer during its 10-day run, but also brewer karaoke and bocce ball brunch. Dreams really do come true.

May 18-27, Pipedream, 2367 N Milwaukee Ave, 872-206-5245

Friday
Welcome Our New Ramen Overlords
FURY ROAD

Welcome Our New Ramen Overlords

It’s a ramen world and we’re just living in it. At least that’s how Furious Spoon sees it. The local chain has just opened its Pilsen location, and with it came new menu items like chili shrimp and kimchi ramen. We’ll leave you two to get acquainted.

Saturday
Donuts, Beer, Bikes and Bags
SUMMER LOVE

Donuts, Beer, Bikes and Bags

Revolution’s Rosa Hibiscus Ale might just be the most perfect summer beer. To celebrate that unsubstantiated assertion, the season’s first batch is about to be released at Timbuk2. Stop in for a beer, some Stan’s donuts and enter a stationary bike sprint contest. Since you’re already there and everything.

Sunday
Beer Mini-Golf. Beer Dodgeball. Both.
BEER HERE

Beer Mini-Golf. Beer Dodgeball. Both.

Fact: Chicago Craft Beer Week starts this week. Fun Fact: Revolution will turn its brewery into a mini-golf course and Goose Island will turn its barrel warehouse into a brewer-verses-brewer dodgeball arena. Fine, that was two fun facts, but we figured you’d allow it.

Sarah Freeman is often accused of hiding secrets in her hair. She can make any cocktail, as long as that cocktail is a rye Old Fashioned, and has never met a saison she didn’t like.
