Kendrick Lamar: The Pop-Up
SIT DOWN

Kendrick Lamar: The Pop-Up

Kendrick Lamar is taking over the United Center. He’s also taking over a slightly smaller venue in the West Loop with a DAMN pop-up shop. It’ll have exclusive merch like hats that say “DAMN,” sweatshirts that say “DAMN,” t-shirts that say “DAMN.” In conclusion: damn.

Friday
The South Side’s New Brewery Will See You Now
CRY, BABY

The South Side’s New Brewery Will See You Now

Chicago’s newest brewery just landed on the far South Side. Open Outcry has it all. Brick walls. Timber ceilings. Wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas served out of a food truck. Overall, not a bad place to grab a Speculator Cream Ale.

Saturday
Last Call For Bar DeVille
CLOSING TIME

Last Call For Bar DeVille

Bar DeVille, West Town’s preferred establishment for downing Malört and dancing to ’90s throwbacks, is closing. Yes, after nine years, the party is about to be over at the beloved equal opportunity supplier of classic drinks and dance parties. But first, one last party.

Closing July 29, Bar DeVille, 701 N Damen Ave, 312-929-2349

Good Beer. Circus Performers. The Roots.
FAT CHANCE

Good Beer. Circus Performers. The Roots.

Tour de Fat is coming back with all the circus performers, marching bands and beer you expect from New Belgium’s annual escapade. And The Roots. They’ll be there headlining this year’s beer fest on Northerly Island. We’ve found it’s best to end on a Roots note whenever possible.

Sunday
A Very Meaty Backyard BBQ
IN THE BOEUF

A Very Meaty Backyard BBQ

Your steak on the barbecue plans just got a bit better thanks to the Boeufhaus guys, who will do the cooking for you. You just sit back. Perhaps with a beer. Perhaps with a frozen margarita. It’s all happening in the Sportsman’s Club backyard and you can be part of it. Lucky you.

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.
