This week’s picks come to you live from Chicago! I’m heading to a Cubbies game today, but I still have some local ideas for ways to enjoy your weekend.


Arooga’s 22 kicks off its 6th anniversary weekend with a brand new beer! Pizza Boy Brewing Co. brewed the aptly named “Wingstinguisher IPA” -- exclusively for Arooga's. Tonight, be a part of the first tapping, a special firkin with tangerine zest celebratory at 5:30 p.m. at Arooga's 22.


Instead, check out the official opening of Urban Churn ice cream, located inside the Midtown Cinema. Urban Churn is a Harrisburg microcreamery, churning their own custom-made ice cream using all real ingredients.

On Saturday they’ll offer FREE ICE CREAM. A cup of ice cream, two scoops of whatever flavors you like.

Included: ice cream, live music, adult beverages. Check the schedule and see a movie while you’re there.


Bacon & Brew Haha at the Abbey Bar at ABC -- What, you may ask, is a Bacon & Brew Ha Ha? It’s an “Everything’s Better with Bacon" and Home Brew contest! So come out and enjoy some local home brews and tasty bacon dishes. Local Brewers and chefs are invited to participate, too! Food pairing anyone? This year the fundraiser benefits Elliott's New Wheels.
