No plans for the weekend? Let the Sun-Times be your social planner.
1. It’s pinot night at the South Loop Wine Cellar, 1442 S. Michigan., which means pinot noir, pinot blanc, pinot gris, and plenty of snacks. The sampling starts at 6:30 p.m. and admission is $5. Call (312) 356-0630.
2. The Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee, hosts three very different bands: Dr. Dog (vintage-sounding rock), the Cave Singers (Seattle indie folk) and Golden Boots (self-described “crumbly western”). Tickets are $15; call (773) 489-3160.
3. There’s nothing like Italian for comfort food. At A Mano, 335 N. Dearborn St., pizzas are $5 in the bar and a three-course dinner is $29. Don’t you deserve dessert? Call (312) 629-3500.
