Planning a patio pig roast for April is a pretty bold move in Chicago, but it seems like it's going to be a gamble that will pay off this weekend. Saturday's projected temps in the 70s sound perfect for an outdoor party, which is exactly what Dunlays on the Square in Logan Square will be hosting. Head to the neighborhood hangout from 12-5PM for some good, old-fashioned cookout fun.
The all-you-can-eat feast will include pulled pork sammies, baked beans, housemade potato chips and cole slaw for $14 per person (the cost was just lowered from $20, so get there early!). Iron City Beer will be on special throughout the festivities for two bucks each, honoring the owner's hometown of Pittsburgh (you'll have to remember this place during Steelers season).
And what cookout would be complete without some down-home music? Beloved all-left-handed band the Northside Southpaws will play their unique blend of "high-energy string ragtime, old-time country, 'proto-grass' and turn-of-the-century waltzes" on resonator mandolin and guitar from 1-3PM.
Dunlays on the Square, 3137 W. Logan Blvd., 773-227-2400
