Doughnuts, bacon and coffee, is there a more perfect trifecta? To make your foodie heart aflutter, take a look at the Old Town establishment’s menu. Pink lemonade, Samoa and Hot Cocoa hand-crafted, small-batch doughnuts top the list, while the thick-cut bacon comes in honey sriracha, candied and standard. And caffeinators will be buzzing over their partnership with Chicago-based Metropolis coffee. Make sure to try the Doodle Doughnut, a Bismarck (filled with chocolate or vanilla cream) that comes with a piping bag of colored icing, just perfect for doodling! 1419 N. Wells St.
Logan Square continues its tradition of being cooler than other neighborhoods with Remix, a celebration of everything eclectic and repurposed. Go for the incredible art made from recycled and found materials, stay for the all-ages educational workshops—and the knowledge that this fair benefits local school art programs. There’s also plenty of indie music scheduled, but would you expect anything less? June 11-12; 2300 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago.
Father’s Day plans? It doesn’t get much more overtly masculine than the museums of Cantigny Park; the Robert R. McCormick mansion showcases the life of the creator of the Tribune Company and the First Division museum is dedicated to all things U.S. Army 1st Infantry. Balance out that testosterone with the juried art fair, which also has demonstrations, live music, crafts and fun for the kids and great food. Parking is $10, but the event is free! June 18-19; Cantigny Park, 1S151 Winfield Road, Wheaton.
