Fans of antiquing, vintage clothing, vinyl, jewelry and other dusty diving finds will be happy to know the Randolph Street Market's summer season starts this weekend at the Plumbers Union Hall (1340 W. Randolph Street). Tickets are $8 in advance online, $10 at the door. Students receive $3 admission with a valid student ID.


Meet Bruce Dir and Billy Oaks, the owner and brewmaster, respectively, of Tighthead Brewing, for an afternoon of Tighthead drafts on the patio of Maria's Packaged Goods and Community Bar (960 W. 31st Street) today at 4 p.m. before the White Sox take on the Florida Marlins in at US Cellular Field. Wash down complimentary grilled sausages and Pleasant House Bakery carry-in with Chilly Water APA, Irie IPA and Mechanics Grove Maibock. A raffle for two reserve level seats to the game with the Tighthead brewers will take place around 6:15 p.m.
