The Emporium Guys Are at It Again
And They Brought a Block Party-Themed Bar With Them This TimeBy Sarah Freeman
A Cognac-Adjacent Pop-Up Tie Shop
The Living Room of the Gray hotel is about to be conveniently and temporarily transformed into the Tie Bar, where you’ll peruse and procure pocket squares and bow ties, then head over to Vol. 39 for a cognac Old Fashioned. Consider it your reward for nailing that Father’s Day gift.
If You Only Go to One Alley Party Tomorrow Night...
An alley in the Loop probably isn’t your first choice for an evening on the town. Unless, of course, the people from Activate are there. They’ve perfected the alley party and are doing it again on Thursday with breakdance battles, body painted ping-pong players and a pop-up barber shop. Other than that, typical alley.
A Block Party-Themed Bar Just in Time for Summer
Here we go again. The Emporium guys have once again revamped their Logan Square pop-up bar. This time, it channels a block party complete with a fenced-in AstroTurf yard, boozy slushies served on parking tickets and Chicago-style hot dogs. The Emporium guys are good guys.
Beers, Dad and 20% Off at Stock Mfg
Stock Mfg’s latest event is as good a place as any to shoot some pool, grab a gratis Goose Island IPA and pick up a little something for dear old dad at 20% off. Perhaps a new release like the Chicago Coach’s Jacket. Which is probably better than his pee wee league one.
Go Ahead, Set Your Dad Loose Inside of a Giant Meat Cooler
Speaking of pops, he definitely wants some one-on-one time with a massive meat cooler. At Primehouse, they’re offering him and three friends a private tour of the dry-aging room, followed by dinner of the same steaks he picks out in there. A 40-day dry-aged ribeye was on his wish list, right?
