Things to do for July 30, 2009

The Weekend

Rooftop Brunch, Spandex Parties and Pink Tacos

The weekend blames the sunshine, the moonlight, the boogie, but mostly, the gin.

Friday
Scoop NYC Summer Sale
SALE-ING

Scoop NYC Summer Sale

The summer heat has been curiously absent, but we have a feeling it's just lying in wait. Prep yourself at this Bucktown sartorial armory, which is offering 25 percent off already marked-down seasonal finery, ranging from Spurr's lean-and-mean casual wear to Prada's lightweight, ready-to-kill fashion.

July 30, Scoop NYC, 1702 N. Milwaukee Ave (at Wabansia), 773-227-9930

Sample Sale at The Mart

Sample Sale at The Mart

You can't buy style, but you can fight for it—and at this annual sale, you might just have to. Mart showrooms fling open their doors to the general public in order to clear out art, area rugs, lighting and furniture. Hey, an Eames chair is always worth throwing an elbow for.

Official Lollapalooza Pre-Party
OOH LOLLA

Official Lollapalooza Pre-Party

Those squeezing into their tightest spandex getups get in for free at this hipster Lolla preview, featuring an eclectic array of hardcore dance DJs playing next week's show. But bring some talcum powder—you may need to perform an emergency extraction on someone later.

$10, Doors open 9pm, Sonotheque, 1444 W. Chicago Ave, 312-226-2600

Saturday
Ivan Kane's Forty Deuce
VA-VA-VA VOOM

Ivan Kane's Forty Deuce

The high rollers of Hammond have imported the high-heeled, fishnetted, rock-and-roll debauchery of Ivan Kane's Forty Deuce burlesque revue direct from the Vegas Strip in a shameless attempt to lure you to their gambling den. But since they've gone through all that trouble, it would be rude not to accept.

$25-55, 9pm, The Venue at Horseshoe Casino, 777 Casino Center Drive, Hammond, IN, 219-473-6060

UD HOOKUP: We've got 10 pairs of tickets for those over 21 and in need of a little temptation. Email your name and the name your guest here.

World's Largest Indoor Pub Crawl
RUMMY

World's Largest Indoor Pub Crawl

Pub crawls can be so dangerous—there's no telling what you'll stub along the way. So in its usual display of concern for your well-being, Uncle Fatty's sets up five bars serving everything from fishbowl cocktails to something called the Pink Taco under one roof. Try not to get lost.

Sunday
High Noon at C-View
GETTING HIGH

High Noon at C-View

Your brunch doesn't have to be this long-drawn-out, all-day thing. It can be a simple skewer of grilled shrimp in your Bloody Mary. A few succulent grilled oysters. Maybe some barbecue ribs. If you happen to fritter away a whole afternoon admiring breathtaking 29th-floor penthouse views, that's another story.

Sat and Sun, C-View, 29th fl., Affinia Hotel, 166 E. Superior St, 312-523-0923
