Listen Up. No, Seriously, Listen Up.
FROM PERKS

Listen Up. No, Seriously, Listen Up.

Because we found you a collection of first-class wireless and ear-in headphones from the Swedish music-lovers over at VAIN STHLM. They're equipped with top-of-the-line audio technology, built for comfort and boast the clean yet definitive look you've come to expect from Scandinavian things. All that's left for you to do is press play. And stop. You'll probably have to press stop at some point, too.

SPECIAL DELIVERY

This Restaurant Only Delivers Poke

Not that you need any more poke in your life at this point, but Lettuce Entertain You’s new online, delivery-only restaurant specializes in bowls and rolls with your choice of fish, sauce and toppings. So maybe you do?

A Pitchfork Party on the Roof of the ACE Hotel
PITCH PERFECT

A Pitchfork Party on the Roof of the ACE Hotel

Celebrate Pitchfork and the soft-opening of the Ace Hotel at one conveniently located rooftop soiree. LA-based electronic musician Madame Gandhi and some DJs will be headlining a Pitchfork after-party on Friday, and you will be there. Time to dust off that Madame Gandhi t-shirt.

A Pastry-Filled French Bakery Just in Time for Bastille Day
OUI, OUI

A Pastry-Filled French Bakery Just in Time for Bastille Day

Of course this new French bakery called Maison Marcel is opening on Bastille Day. Of course it has all the bread and pastries required to fulfill your every Parisian fantasy. More surprising, though, is the all-day, all-organic brunch menu every weekend. When in fake-France...

The Yusho Guys Bring Beer Cheese to Wrigley
LUCKY YOU

The Yusho Guys Bring Beer Cheese to Wrigley

Next time you’re heading to a Cubs game, consider a pit stop at Lucky Dorr, because the Wrigley-adjacent bar from the guys behind Yusho is now open. It’s doing things like offering over a dozen local beers on tap and serving beer cheese with German-style pretzels. Audacious things like that.

Thought You Could Use a Nice Little Thai Festival
THAI ANOTHER DAY

Thought You Could Use a Nice Little Thai Festival

It’s where Mauy Thai boxing meets a Thai drum parade. It’s where you can eat chicken meatballs and chase them with mango sticky rice. It’s the first-annual Thai Food Festival, it’s taking over Buena Park this weekend, and it behooves you to be there. Behooves. Great word.

July 15, 11am-9pm; July 16, 11am-8pm, $5 suggested donation, Thai Food Festival, 851 W Irving Park Rd

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.
