Late Nights in Little Bucharest

It's late, you're hungry and you'd kill for a little flaming cheese—but you're nowhere near Greektown. Now you can sate post-bar cravings for everything from saganaki to apple strudel with this quirky bistro's new late-night menu, which is kind of like the United Nations of hangover prevention.

Late night menu 10pm-2am, Wed-Suns, 3661 N. Elston Ave, 773-604-8500

Friday
New Patio at Province
GREAT OUTDOORS

New Patio at Province

The Air & Water Show is this weekend, but you may be more interested in the air and tequila show at this West Looper's just-unveiled patio. Nestle under the dramatic arc of a canopy as you knock back a few refreshing Palomas before taking your day in for a landing.

Now open, Province, 161 N. Jefferson St (N. of Randolph), 312-669-9900

Saturday
Beta Boutique Stacked Rack Sale
SALE-ING

Beta Boutique Stacked Rack Sale

At this sample sale, where anything from Hyden Yoo dress shirts to casually elegant gear from James Perse and Howe is 40 to 90 percent off, things can get kind of crazy. So your ability to quickly slip out of a pair of pants comes in handy.

Aug 15 10am-6pm, Aug 16 12-5pm, Beta Boutique, 651 W. Diversey, 773-276-0905

Angel & Kings Anniversary Party
WENTZ

Angel & Kings Anniversary Party

Plain White Ts will perform in celebration of the Pete Wentz-owned bar's first anniversary. And since it's the official after-party for tonight's Fall Out Boy/blink-182/Panic at the Disco concert, who knows who might show up. (We hear Bronx Mowgli has a very liberal bedtime.)

No cover, doors @ 8pm, Angel & Kings, 710 N. Clark, 312-482-8600

Sunday
Amazing Race Casting Call
TRAVELOGUE

Amazing Race Casting Call

You've got stamina, attitude and a legendary ability to read a map. And while that qualifies you to drive a CTA bus, those skills are probably better put to use on an adventure reality show. Find a good snapshot and a buddy, and head to your first exotic locale: Hammond.

2pm-6pm, Aug 16, Horseshoe Casino Hammond, 777 Casino Center Drive, Hammond, IN; apply here
