Gratis Beer and On-Sale Things for Your Closet. Win-Win.

Happy rooftop-happy-hour season. To celebrate, consider heading to Independence on Oak Street for their six-year anniversary with gratis Lagunitas pours and 20% off storewide. And then going to a happy hour on a rooftop.

HOW HIGH

Today in Rooftop Reopenings...

Noyane's glorious rooftop is now open for the summer atop the Conrad Chicago. You should totally go there to eat Sticky Ribs and sip Chartreuse Cocktails served from a slushy machine. Meanwhile, AIRE is also making its seasonal debut with 360-degree views and a pop-up grill from Kuma's Corner. Sky: 2. Land: 0. 

Now open, Noyane, 101 E Erie St, 312-667-6796; now open, AIRE, 100 W Monroe St, 312-236-1234

Saturday
Champagne and Ferraris. Fair Enough.
FAST TIMES

Champagne and Ferraris. Fair Enough.

Congrats on being able to browse around for the vehicle you've always wanted while sipping Champagne and reclining on leather furniture. Because Ferrari Lake Forest, one of only 40 Ferrari showrooms in America, now exists with a Champagne bar and an atelier to customize your own ride. Seriously, congrats on that. 

Sunday
Frank Sinatra Used to Eat Here. And Now, You Brunch Here.
ONE AND DONE

Frank Sinatra Used to Eat Here. And Now, You Brunch Here.

Booth One (of used-to-be-Pump-Room fame) in the Gold Coast is now offering a fancy weekend brunch featuring anything from acai bowls to lobster toast to black truffle scrambled eggs with butter-poached crab. But it's cool if you just want some pancakes.

Festival Season Is Upon Us. Let's Start With Wine, Shall We?
GRAPE EXPECTATIONS

Festival Season Is Upon Us. Let's Start With Wine, Shall We?

On Sunday, you drink wine. You have no choice but to drink wine. Mostly because you'll be at the Lincoln Park Wine Festival, which will have more than 80 wines available for your sipping pleasure, plus empanadas, tacos and DJs doing their thing. See? No choice.

What Else Is New

Pearl Plotkin is often mistaken for an 89-year-old bubbie. Her favorite things include writing, doodling, live music and finding faces in inanimate objects. Not necessarily in that order.
