WICKER PARK — Happy Friday!
Here are some ideas for things to do over the weekend, which will see autumnal weather in the 60s and 70s.
Brunch at Beatnik. Pop into this new West Town restaurant for a hearty brunch aided by slushies, mimosas and Bloody Marys. Dishes include pork cheek fried rice, a Spanish tortilla with uni, shakshuka — or North African-style poached duck eggs — and the house burger, made with two Angus beef patties, curry pickles, vermouth glazed onions, mustard aioli and salt roasted potatoes, according to Beatnik's menu. Brunch hours are 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 1604 W. Chicago Ave.
