Yes, They Put Beer in the Salad Dressing

Empirical’s science-minded brews have a new home in the old pub next to Mayne Stage, and over 50% of the food menu has beer in it. Which is a statistic you can get behind. That, and Kölsch cheese sauce-covered burgers.

Blue Door Farm Stand Is Back. It’s Very Much Back.
COMEBACK KID

Blue Door Farm Stand Is Back. It’s Very Much Back.

Blue Door Farm Stand. Did you miss it? Did you realize it was gone? Probably. Regardless, it’s been absent from Lincoln Park for two years, but now it’s back in a two-story location with sunrise BLTs for breakfast and fried chicken sliders for dinner. Seems like you should probably pop in and say hi.

Saturday
Coffee and Books and Brisket Hash
DOUBLE SHOT

Coffee and Books and Brisket Hash

South Siders are about to have a new coffee shop and gathering space in Build Coffee. Meanwhile, North Siders’ favorite caffeinated bicycle shop, Heritage, just added a new kitchen. One of these places serves coffee and books. The other, coffee and brisket hash. No need to pick sides here.

Gratis Beer and Damn-Near-Gratis Bags at Timbuk2

Little random, but... let’s fix your bag game. And let’s do it at Timbuk2’s First Dibs party, where the Chicago store will show off its new wares and part with them for up to 50% off. They’ll also give you gratis beer and snacks. They don’t drive a hard bargain.

Tacos and Tiki. Enough Said.
THE SWINE-ING

Tacos and Tiki. Enough Said.

Your neighborhood grocery store with a butcher and café is celebrating its second birthday in the best way possible: with a pig roast and tiki party. Frontera’s chef Andres Padilla will make tacos with a whole-roasted local hog, while Spilt Milk’s Matty Eggelston will swizzle cocktails. You can just sort of show up.

What Else Is New

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.
