            Caution: More Stylish When Wet

These are good-looking shorts from Lacrosse Playground. Or so you thought. Because they’re so much more
than that: hop into the nearest body of water and they’ve magically turned into swim trunks—with a
pattern that only appears when they’re wet. Boom.

COMING UP DAISIES

            Meet Logan Square’s New Pasta Place

Joe Frillman is back. Who’s Joe Frillman? He used to be the chef at Balena. His brother owns a farm. Both
of those things come into play at his new pasta-forward restaurant called Daisies. There, you’ll do things
like eat beet agnolotti and drink beet cocktails. Good job, Joe.

Thursday

PILSEN PILSNER

            Here, Have Another New Brewery

It might not look like much from the outside, but hiding behind those brick walls is the latest addition to
Pilsen’s brewery collection. Lo Rez makes its debut with Primary Element saison, Local Logic pilsner and
other tech-themed brews. It’s also a stone’s throw from Moody Tongue and Pleasant House Pub. Just
saying.

Friday

FROM HOLLANDER WITH LOVE

            It’s Called H Bar, and It Aims to Please You

Concrete columns surrounded by leather banquettes. A long wood bar sitting under gold light fixtures. Live
music. Seems like a decent place to grab a Negroni. This industrial hangout of which we speak is H! Bar.
It’s in The Hollander hotel, it opens Friday with half-priced drinks and it likes punctuation marks.

Saturday

SMOKE SIGNALS

            A Beachside BBQ Shack in Lincoln Park

You’re walking along the lakefront and spot a shack topped with mismatched metal letters. You smell the
distinct aroma of brisket. Congratulations, you’ve found Flat & Point. It’s helmed by a former
Spiaggia chef and he’ll happily put that brisket in a taco with sriracha aioli. You’ll happily let him.

Sunday

IT’S LIT

            Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Al Franken and Books

Put down the screen and pick up a real book at the city’s largest gathering of new and used booksellers,
Printers Row Lit Fest. Among others, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Rick Bayless and Senator Al Franken will be there
participating in seminars and discussions. That old trio.

Sarah Freeman is often accused of hiding secrets in her hair. She can make any cocktail, as long as that cocktail is a rye Old Fashioned, and has never met a saison she didn’t like.
