Weekend What-To-Do: Pitchfork Edition

Weekend What-To-Do is Tailgate's end of week look at what sports related events are going down in Chicago. Read it and make sure you stay hydrated while considering the options of using an actual pitchfork on some hipster lamewad at Pitchfork this weekend.


The Cubs are hosting the defending NL champions, Philadelphia all weekend at Wrigley. Meanwhile the white-hot White Sox (winners of nine straight) are "up nord der in Minniesota, you betcha" to take on loathed divisional rival the Twins and, presumably, mock the Coen Bros. classic, Fargo.


The Chicago Fire are hosting the New England Revolution on Saturday night at Toyota Park. Come out to see how the Fire rebound from their 5-1 loss in the opening game of their SuperLiga series

The fun pop-up boutique jointly run by St Alfred's and Nike in support of the World Cup, Six Points is closing this weekend with a cooooool event (don't worry it's coming back as a running store). Throughout its run the store had various artists and designers drop extremely limited edition Chicago and footie-inspired tee shirts. The same designers (Mr Cartoon, Chicago's Cody Hudson among them) also designed radical soccer balls that will be auctioned off Saturday in a silent auction at the store. Doors open at seven, with complimentary foods and drinks, 21+ and call (773) 486-7159 to put in a bid or just for more details.
