For the first time in 15 months, dancing (that’s right, dancing) is back at Roscoe’s in Northalsted. And this Sunday is the return of Britney Sunday, where they play (you guessed it) Britney all night long. It starts at 8pm, and you need to show proof of vaccination. You also might like to know that dancing is back at Hydrate and Scarlet too - as long as you have proof of vaccination.

Speaking of dancing, boxing is like a dance. No? Well anyway, Old Town Pour House is hosting a free viewing of the Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul fight on June 6th. They’ll start showing the event at 7pm, though the actual fight will be happening around 11pm. Seating is first-come-first-served.

Cielo Rooftop

Cielo, the rooftop bar and restaurant on top of Azul Mariscos in Goose Island, just opened. It’s full of couches and cabanas with wooden pergolas, and it also has a view of the Chicago river. Like Azul, the menu is mostly seafood (with crudos and ceviches) and you can expect a whole lot of booze and bass while you’re here.

Green City Market West Loop

On Saturday the Green City farmer’s market in the West Loop returns for the season. The market opens at 8a, and will run every Saturday through October. For a full list of vendors, click here.

Every Thursday from 8-11pm blues band Rodney & Friends will be performing on the patio at Ina Mae Tavern in Wicker Park. The patio is first-come-first-served, but you should still be able to hear the music even if you sit inside.

Sir Chicken is the carryout fried chicken concept operating out of the Korean restaurant Perilla in the West Loop. They just launched a limited series of monthly sandwiches called “K-drama Kravings.” The first is the CLOY, named after Netflix’s Crash Landing on You. It has a Korean fried chicken thigh tossed in sweet and spicy sauce, and topped with mayo, spicy kimchi slaw, and scallions on a potato bun with a side of radish pickles.

On June 6th, wine bar The Press Room is hosting a cigar and whiskey event on their patio. Tickets cost $65, and you’ll get a welcome cocktail, three pours of whiskey, a cigar to smoke, and a gift bag. And you can order barbecue dishes like a pulled pork sandwich, brisket, mac and cheese, and more. Reserve a spot here
