Yesterday marked the start of International Pickle Week at Chicago q (1160 N. Dearborn St., Gold Coast, 312-642-1160). Sate your bread and butter fix there all this week with a fried version of their housemade pickles for $9.

A week of consistent patio weather? Maybe! You can swing by 312 Chicago (136 N. LaSalle, Loop, 312-696-2420) to soak it up at their Patio A-Beer-Tivo Hour, where you can get four samples of Lagunitas beers and unlimited appetizers for $15 from 5-7 p.m.

If you can’t keep the multitudinous restaurant options in Logan Square straight, consider hopping on the Crawl Around the Square, a walking tour of restaurants in every corner of the neighborhood with a chef’s-choice sample dish and a Bell’s beer pairing at each. You can sign up for the $45 tour guided by a member of the Logan Square Chamber of Commerce here.

You can have dessert before you finish your vegetables at El Mariachi’s (3906 N. Broadway, Lake View, 773-549-2932) first-ever Sorbet Dinner. Every course, from the gazpacho to the halibut, will have an appropriately flavored sorbet made by Sorbetsmith. Call the restaurant to make a reservation for the $45 dinner.

Paris Club (59 W. Hubbard St., River North, 312-595-0800) is bringing in the crew from St. Canut Farms in Montreal for a snout-to-tail porcelet (that’s a milk-fed piglet for you non-Francophone speakers) dinner. Courses for the $125 meal with wine pairings include a braised pork shoulder, a tongue and cheek tartine, and grilled peaches with bacon ice cream—you can call the restaurant to make a reservation.
