“Two to Tango”
(Artango Bar and Steakhouse)
A rare opportunity to nibble outstanding paella, guzzle malbec and publicly humiliate yourself trying to do the classic Argentine dance.
Every Tuesday in June
National Donut Day
(Stan’s Donuts, Wicker Park)
At midnight on June 1, the first one-hundred guests get a free half-dozen glazed donuts, in honor of this sweet if made-up holiday.
(Lincoln, Irving Park and Damen)
As much about the music as the meat, the twenty-year-old festival, offers excellent beer, q and clothing decorated with the stars ‘n’ bars. Yum.
West Lake Market
(Eden Parking Lot)
With much merch, this warm-weather market kicks off with food, some from an on-site greenhouse. The ubiquitous Jesse White Tumblers perform.
June 10, and then second Sunday of every month through October
Tinker with Tinctures
(Staytion Market & Bar)
If you want to be a semi-professional at-home mixologist, you must make your own tinctures. Learn to do that at this event.
