Weekly Planner: Antique Taco's Sunday City Market, Limoncello Class, Lobster Fest and More
Sunday City Market
At the height of summer, local farms are lush with produce and markets are popping up all over Chicago to celebrate their wares. The latest example is Sunday City Market, now running every Sunday at Antique Taco Bridgeport. In partnership with the City of Chicago and South Loop Chamber of Commerce, the weekly green market takes place in the restaurant’s parking lot from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., with chef demos, live music, breakfast tacos and vendors like Avium Flowers, Bike a Bee and Front Room Donuts. The chef demo for July 23 is Shin Thompson of Furious Spoon.
Limoncello Class at Osteria Via Stato
Speaking of demos, there’s a boozy kind taking place at Osteria Via Stato this week, as wine and beverage manager Matt Dolin shows guests how to make limoncello on July 22. Taking place at 3:00 p.m., the leisurely Saturday affair will guide attendees through the process of making limoncello at home utilizing fresh, seasonal fruit infusions. Along the way, you’ll sample other varieties like grapefruitcello and even a chocolacello. The cost is $20 per person, which includes a sample to take home.

Summer Donuts at Glazed & Infused
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, Glazed & Infused recently rolled out a new batch of summer donuts at all of its locations, and they’re some of the most unique and inspired flavors to date. The Strawberry Kiwi Old Fashioned is a spice cake donut glazed with strawberry jam and a kiwi drizzle, while the Blackberry Cheesecake Bismarck is a donut stuffed with vanilla cheesecake and frosted with a housemade blackberry jam glaze. Then there’s the Pilsen, a donut inspired by the near southwest side neighborhood, made with a mango and pineapple glaze and a dusting of spicy tajin and lime.
Lobster Festival at Shaw’s Crab House
You still have a few days left to participate in Lobster Festival at Shaw’s Crab House, the month-long shellfish shindig featuring a lineup of summery menu specials. These include highlights like lobster maki, lobster tacos, lobster rolls, lobster fettuccine and a 1.5-lb. lobster boil with potatoes, corn and sausage.
