Weekend Planner: Michael Jordan's Birthday and Johnny Cash's Beer

Happy Birthday, Michael Jordan!

Brew Debut
Be the first to sip the new collaborative beer by Dryhop and Lake Effect Brewing. The Belgo-IPA called, “Shot a Man in Simcoe” (named for the Johnny Cash music blasting in the brewery while the beer was made) will be tapped on Friday at Paddy Long's (773-290-6988).

Pop-Up Shop
It is only appropriate that to celebrate President's Day the presidential Hotel Lincoln will host a pop-up market. On Saturday from 11 AM-4 PM, purchase treats from Do-Rite and Salted Caramel as well as bubbles from Illinois Sparking Co (312-254-4700).

Chocolate and Wine
Save room for even more dessert after Valentine’s Day. D.O.C. Wine Bar is extending its wine and chocolate flight through the weekend. The four pairings include chocolate crepes and peanut butter pot au crème paired with select wines for $35 (773-883-5101).

Birthday Cake
Chicago’s favorite basketball legend is turning the big 5-0 on Sunday, and to celebrate his namesake steakhouse will serve a five-course Terlato wine dinner for $125 or a complimentary slice of 23-layer chocolate cake for those dining from the regular menu. An auction is also being held with items such as autographed basketballs to benefit Meals on Wheels (312-321-8823).
