Elate Memorial Day Brunch; Oak Street Beach; Happy Memorial Day!

RIVER NORTH—Need to nurse that Memorial Day hangover? Pop over to Elate for brunch (between 6:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.) for classic American dishes, like "steak and eggs" (braised short rib and potato pancake); smoked pork egg benedict; the Elate burger with creamed leeks; mini beignets and, of course, Bloody Marys.

GOLD COAST—Goodbye Oak Street Beachstro. Hello Oak Street Beach, a new cafe from Levy Restaurants on the curve at Lake Shore Drive overlooking the water and sand. Look for unique summery cocktails and menu items like the signature burger, an ahi tuna burger, a seafood stew and a taco stand. It'll also have a grab-and-go window. [EaterWire]

BRIDGEPORT—Ride your bike to Nana May 28 and 29 and park it with the bike valet for free. And enjoy brunch even more knowing that 10 percent of the "bike and brunch" sales will benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN—Sign up for Adam Seger's summer cocktail class at the Martini Bar on June 17 (between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.). For $25, Seger, an award-winning mixologist who created Hum Botanicals, guests will learn how to create a variety of cocktails, enjoy a welcome punch and nibble on apps. Call 312-922-8025 to reserve a spot. And yes, it'll likely sell out fast. [EaterWire]

EVERYWHERE—Have a great Memorial Day weekend. Play safe. We'll see you back here on Tuesday. [EaterWire]
