If you’ve promised her one night at the theater this summer, make it this one. Here’s your plan:
You’re heading to the theater. Let’s step up your sartorial game a bit, shall we? The Airy Hopsack Blazer from Gant Rugger is an unconstructed joint cut from a summery cotton and linen blend. It’s sharp, but not stuffy, so you’ll feel comfortable all evening long. (Ed. note: GANT is having a moment. Their entire spring and summer line is phenomenal. Get there.)
GANT Bucktown | 1702 N. Damen Ave.
Just a block away from the Steppenwolf, the newly revamped Boka slow-cooks its short ribs for 48 hours so you get major flavor packed into one elegantly plated dish. Enjoy it in the romantically lit room with a legit cocktail menu. Bonus points for snagging a seat in the atrium. Peep the menu.
Boka | 1729 N. Halsted St.
A play whose productions have cast names like Mark Ruffalo, Matt Damon and Casey Affleck, This Is Our Youth has been a cult favorite since debuting in ‘96. This production sees Cera and Culkin taking the reins as drug-addled, disenfranchised youth growing up during the era of Reagan’s Cold War politics.
The show runs until July 27th — grab your tickets here.
