What are you up to this weekend? We’re going to a comedy show tonight at Lincoln Hall to see Neil Hamburger and Tim Heidecker. Very excited for that! Saturday Bob works so I use it as my errand and “catch up” day. Then, on Sunday, we’re going to the Cubs vs. Cardinals game at Wrigley. Should be a fun weekend! Although, I’m really excited for next weekend when I get to go home for a few days and relax on my parent’s beach in Grand Haven, Michigan.

Last week Bob and I met some friends at the relatively new Emporium Arcade Bar in Wicker Park. It’s filled with1980’s and 1990’s arcade games, including Mortal Kombat, Ms. Pacman, Duck Hunt, Space Invaders and Rampage. You can check out the full list of their games here.
They have a decent, rotating craft beer selection and some high-end whiskey options. While they don’t serve food, they do let you bring in your own. We ordered pizza from Piece and had it delivered. I can’t recommend this place enough, although I do recommend going on a weeknight as weekends supposedly get shoulder-to-shoulder packed.

How gorgeous is this Iporanga House designed by Nitsche Arquitetos Associados?! It sits in a Brazilian rainforest near the San Paulo coast. Swoon.

Reel by Yeong Keun Jeong is bike storage, updated. It seems pretty useful – you can attach it a number of different ways and it would hold objects of many different shapes and sizes. I like how it looks too.

Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? I’m having an early happy hour downtown with a friend, since I’m on summer hours and out at 1 today. Tomorrow Bob & I are going to see the new Batman movie in an IMAX theater and on Sunday we’re going to a Breaking Bad meetup. Should be a fun weekend! Here’s a great remix by Soulwax to get you in the weekend spirit…
For my second week of picking three Pinterest recipes to make, I’m going with these No-Bake Cinnamon Cranberry Granola Bars from Food Doodles; this Southwestern Quinoa Salad from Ashley’s Cooking Adventures; and these fantastic looking Veggie Calzones from Leafy Greens & Me. Which of these recipes would you most like to try?
