8/11: Suds-Soaked Grub at The Bad Apple

John Ferguson

The Bad Apple

APPLE A DAY KEEPS SOBRIETY AWAY: From the brew dudes behind Menagerie and Cooper's, The Bad Apple is a comfy North Center Tavern pouring over 60 beers, which they also cook into their cholesterol-happy grub, e.g., five different types of burgers (blackened with Belgian Ale blue cheese, juicy with Gonzo Imperial porter glazed mushrooms and onions, etc) and PB&J alkied-up with Lindeman's Framboise jam. There's also poutine -- a Canadian dish of gravy-slathered fries, which explains why they need universal health care.
4300 N Lincoln Avenue, at Cullom; Lincoln Square; 773.360.8406

JOIN THE CLUB: Make the most of what's left of the balmy weather on C-View's stunning rooftop terrace at the sleek Affinia Chicago hotel. Tonight, the Patron Social Club soiree will attract the beautiful people for $10 margaritas and sultry DJ sets. Aah, summer in the city doesn't get much better. 4-11 p.m., no cover.
166 E Superior Street, at N St Clair; 312.523.0923

TAKE IT OUTSIDE: If you'd like your August evening to come with a jazz soundtrack, get to the Museum of Contemporary Art, where Chicago singer Maggie Brown will be playing a free alfresco concert on the sprawling terrace for your listening pleasure. Puck's Cafe will also offer a $19 prix-fixe dinner for the event, so plan on making a night of it. 5:30 p.m.
220 East Chicago Avenue, between Michigan and Fairbanks; 312.280.2660
