The Bitches Who Brunch kickball team dominated this Sunday winning our first game in the Brunch n’ Kickball league with Chicago Sport and Social! It didn’t hurt that the weather was pristine and walking to brunch after our big win, I couldn’t help but notice the tulips were in full bloom. In addition to all the fun happenings around the city this week, don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers!
Dreamy Zack Morris from Saved By The Bell had the right idea when he said, “I like school. It’s a good way to kill time between weekends.” We feel you Zack. Except instead of school, it’s work and in actuality, who says you can’t have weekend worthy outings during the week? The Wicker Park pop-up restaurant, Saved By The Max, pays tribute to the 1980’s television classic, Saved By The Bell and this week it is hosting The Bramble Bash. Sticking to the same decade, the bash will feature a 1980’s themed cocktail competition with some of Chicago’s top bartenders taking a stab at their own version of the Bramble gin cocktail.
