Ramen-san Brings Its Many Talents to the West Loop
THE SAN ALSO RISES

Ramen-san Brings Its Many Talents to the West Loop

Ramen-san has opened on Green Street in the West Loop with new bowls and new libations. Try their Spicy Yuzu with smoked chicken, or their Japanese Katsu Curry ramen. Then try their tropical cocktails like the Capri-San that's super pineapple-y. Repeat as necessary.

Now open, Ramen-san, 219 N Green St, 773-645-0085

Friday
Revival's Monthly Pop-Up Series Continues. Next Up: The Violet Hour.
SEEING VIOLET

Revival's Monthly Pop-Up Series Continues. Next Up: The Violet Hour.

On Friday evening, Revival Food Hall will transform into the Violet Hour, complete with the swanky speakeasy's candles, cozy furniture, absinthe droppers and of course, cocktails. That last part being the important part.

Saturday
Beer, Sausage, Music, More Beer
BEER HERE

Beer, Sausage, Music, More Beer

This weekend, Chicago Ale Fest will feature live music, food trucks and over 200 craft beers. So yes, you're in for a grand time. Especially when you head to the "Impossible-to-Get Beer Tent" to sample wares from five breweries that aren't available in Illinois. Wares. So many wares.

Sunday
Adult Summer Camp at the Dawson. Sure, You'll Bite.
CAMP OF APPROVAL

Adult Summer Camp at the Dawson. Sure, You'll Bite.

Campfire-inspired food. Bottled "bug juice." Oversized hot dogs and fireside grilled cheeses. S'mores with boozy marshmallows. Live music. Monthly cocktail classes. We could go on, but then you'd already know everything that's going to be happening at Camp Dawson. Close one.

June 3, 10:30am-11pm, no cover, The Dawson, 730 W Grand Ave, 312-243-8955

Monday
You and a Date and Black Panther Under the Stars
ROOF POSITIVE

You and a Date and Black Panther Under the Stars

Monday feels like as good a day as any to watch Black Panther on the roof of theWit. And other movies on other Monday nights. It's their new movie series and, yes, there's gratis popcorn. Though we probably had you at roof.

June 4, 8:30pm, no cover, ROOF on theWit, 201 N State St, 312-239-9502

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.
