Reader's Agenda Tue 7/16: Belleville, ice cream, and a spaghetti western paired with rare brews



Kate Arrington and Cliff Chamberlain in Belleville
Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

If you haven't yet, catch Amy Herzog's Belleville at Steppenwolf, a tale about the enemies we find in our most intimate friends. In his review, Tony Adler praises Herzog's canny storytelling and spare, cunning dialogue.

Curious why everyone's been screaming for the last two weeks? It's National Ice Cream Month. Celebrate at Reader-recommended spots like Molly's Cupcakes, Village Creamery, or Margie's Candies. 'Tis the season.

For this month's Malty Matinee, the Music Box screens Sergio Sollima's spaghetti western The Big Gundown, preceded by tastings of Witkap Stimulo, a rare abbey singel; St. Amand, a copper biere de garde from Brasserie Castelain; and Peche Mel, a peach cider from the makers of Scaldis.
