Things to do for July 09, 2009
Bacon Martinis, Sexy Firewalkers, and Endless Beer
The weekend is solar powered.
Bears kicker Robbie Gould has you beat in field goals, but we think you can take ol' No. 9 when it comes to putting through a windmill. Join him at this benefit for kids, where there'll be food, an open bar and as many little pencils as you need.
Secret passwords, live white Siberian tigers and sexy fire-walking dancers sound like a reasonably dramatic way to officially lift the curtain on a new club, so poke your head into this new River West lair's opening celebration just to make sure things stay interesting.
The acknowledged leader in heavy metal-themed burger joints celebrates its four-year anniversary the way you would expect: with free sausage sandwiches for everyone. Head-banging comes courtesy of Clutch and three other bands that'll rock Francisco Avenue to its very core.
Soldier Field will be awash in suds when 50 breweries converge to show off more than 150 beers at this celebration of all things hoppy and frothy. Your ticket entitles you to plenty of craft brews samples, a commemorative tasting glass, and, of course, a malty sense of well being.
