Things to do for April 08, 2010

The Weekender

Beer Buses, Naked Sushi and Wrigley

The weekend is best served frothy.

Thursday
1 New Perk
PERK

1 New Perk

This week's perk puts you on a private jet to Aspen, with a hotel room, a new wardrobe and four days of feasting waiting for you at the other end. All you need is a little luck—and a ski vest wouldn't hurt.

Dinner Service Begins at Jam
JAMMY TIME

Dinner Service Begins at Jam

It's already mastered breakfast, lunch and brunch, and now this little culinary powerhouse thinks you can handle what it does when the lights go down. Prepare to enter a world of juicy burgers, foie gras tortellini and country-pork terrine. They'll also serve you breakfast for dinner, if you get nostalgic.

Dinner available Wed-Mon, Jam, 937 N Damen Ave, 773-489-0302

Sports Corner Reopens
CORNERED

Sports Corner Reopens

The beloved, if shabby, tavern across from the Harry Caray statue has finally been reborn as a gleaming three-story tower of beer and baseball. With the Cubs' home opener next week, it's never too early to start planning your pre- and post-Wrigley drinking options. You're very choosy about where you'll cry into your beer.

Now open, Sports Corner, 956 W Addison St (at Sheffield), 773-929-1441

Friday
After Dark at the Art Institute
DARK VISIONS

After Dark at the Art Institute

You have a theory about appreciating fine art: namely, that it's much easier when you have a stiff martini in your hand, top DJs spinning in the background and the opportunity to chat up that Venus in stilettos clicking around the grand hall of the Modern Wing.

Rare Beer Bus Tour
HOP ON

Rare Beer Bus Tour

When 3,000 brewers come to town for the International Craft Brewers Conference, it's only polite to show them around. Join Delilah's as they take some beer dignitaries on a tour of Chicago's famed watering holes. The itinerary is hush-hush, but word to the wise: you might want to straighten up your place.

Apr 9, 5pm-2am, no cost, Delilah's, 2771 N Lincoln Ave (south of Diversey), 773-472-2771

Saturday
Naked Sushi at Sound-Bar
ZEN THERE

Naked Sushi at Sound-Bar

The kaleidoscopic lair of aural delights turns six this weekend, and they'll celebrate just like you did on your sixth birthday: with real cherry blossom trees, geisha girls in milk baths and sushi served from a nubile vixen's body. Oh, to be young again.

Apr 10, $20, Sound-Bar, 226 W Ontario St (at Franklin), 312-787-4480
