Naked Sushi at Proof
RAW FEED

Naked Sushi at Proof

Some people are satisfied by christening a new club with a bottle of champagne, a few pretty girls and some fresh sashimi. People like you. And if the sushi happens to be served from the pretty girl—as it will be here tonight—it makes it much easier to hold your champagne.

Sep 30, doors 10pm, sushi midnight-1:30am, Proof, 1045 N Rush St, 312-397-1045

Friday
New Fall Gear on Oak Street
SHOPPING WITH VINCE

New Fall Gear on Oak Street

Don’t let a balmy September fool you: autumn is approaching and your cashmere armory is looking awfully low. Stock up on reinforcements—and maybe some button-downs, jeans and hoodies, while you’re at it—when Vince makes its Chicago debut. To be clear: you should keep pulling for a balmy October.

Oct 1, 10am, Vince, 106 E Oak St (at Michigan), 312-280-6890

Calvin Klein Pops Up for a Week
SHOPPING WITH CALVIN

Calvin Klein Pops Up for a Week

Here, you’ll have your first chance to grab some Italian V-necks, military blazers and stretch twill pants, but it’s only around for one week before the gear hits Carson’s. By the way: the twill pants are not military regulation.

Oct 1-8, opens 11am, 116 W Hubbard St (between Clark and LaSalle), 312-527-2182

Late-Night Eating at Balsan
BREAKING CURFEW

Late-Night Eating at Balsan

It’s approaching midnight. And you’re hungry. We pity anyone who gets between you and a whole roast chicken. And Balsan’s willing to serve—along with all the pizzas, sardines, meats and cheese you need to refuel for the long morning ahead.

Fri-Sat, 10pm-midnight, Balsan, 11 E Walton St (between State and Rush), 312-646-1400

Saturday
Beer, Bourbon and Barbecue for Intuit
THE ART OF BARBECUE

Beer, Bourbon and Barbecue for Intuit

You are a lover of fine art. You also consider barbecue a sorely underappreciated medium. So gather with the art lovers from the Intuit as they consider the significance of Sweet Baby Ray’s, top-shelf bourbon and local brews at this saucy gala. Bring your formal wet naps.
