JBar's ice cream pop-up serves up deliciously unexpected flavors.

David Burke’s Ice Cream Pop-Up
Friday, July 20, 3–5 PM
Every Friday this summer, the James Hotel’s JBar—part of David Burke’s Primehouse—transforms its entrance into a pop-up ice cream parlor with changed-weekly concoctions from executive pastry chef Jove Hubbard. This Friday’s flavors are Carrot Cake, a cream cheese ice cream base with pineapple sherbet, carrot cake pieces, and golden raisin caramel; or Chocolate and Peanut Butter, a rich blend of the two ice cream flavors plus peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and chocolate covered peanut brittle. 610 N. Rush St., 312-660-7200

Patty Carroll: “Anonymous Women”
Friday, July 20, 5:30 PM
Kicking off with an opening reception tonight, The Chicago Cultural Center presents a new photography exhibit by Patty Carroll at its Michigan Avenue Galleries. Collectively called “Anonymous Women,” the photos show females outfitted head-to-toe in textural, patterned fabrics, each alluding to cultural issues from religion to the justice system to ethnic stereotyping. The pieces will display through the end of September. 78 E. Washington St., 312-744-6630

Ashore Thing
Saturday, July 21, 10:30 AM–1:30 PM
Before the 350 boats set off for Michigan in the Chicago Yacht Club’s 104th Race to Mackinac, they sail by Navy Pier in a technicolor parade. Ashore Thing will be a luxe affair on the Pier with patrons dressed to the nautical nines, as Michigan Avenue helps host the Official Parade of Boats Viewing Party presented by BMO Harris Bank. 600 E. Grand Ave.
