To help you get the most out of your weekend, we've enlisted the live-event expertise of the editors of Thrillist, a daily e-mail newsletter that highlights the best goings-on in 21 cities across the United States. From Dallas beer tastings and Miami food festivals to Seattle book readings and San Francisco obstacle races, Thrillist curates its Friday-Saturday-Sunday listings every seven days in its Playbook section. We've picked six of our favorite upcoming events from this week's National edition of Thrillist below.
Chicago: A Cozy Cafe in River North
The popular South Side shop has expanded to a second location in River North and brought along its roster of Alterra coffee, smoothies, and sandwiches, plus a taste for local baked goods from Brown Sugar Bakery, Hoosier Mama Pie Shop, and Puffs of Doom, which are both cream puffs and a potential root cause of their consumption.
Robust Coffee Lounge: 416 W Ontario St., 312-526-3420.
