Things to do for November 04, 2010

The Weekender

Spanish Women, Bollywood Dancers and Drive-Ins

The weekend promises to rule benevolently.

Thursday
Women & Women Photo Exhibition
VICKY, CRISTINA, YOU

Women & Women Photo Exhibition

You remember Spain. There were two women. One was a model. The other, a photographer. There was wine. Tapas were nibbled. But the negatives were destroyed. This opening party for an exhibit of photographs of women by Spanish women recaptures the mood. Only, not in Spain.

Friday
First Friday at the MCA
GOING BOLLYWOOD

First Friday at the MCA

Sometimes it feels like you, a tiger and 100 girls in saris against the world. This is one of those nights, when the Museum of Contemporary Art is filled with Bollywood dancers, henna tattoo artists and absinthe samples, and you can get your forehead bejeweled. But it’s strictly BYOT.

Nov 5, 6-10pm, $18 ($13 in advance), MCA, 220 E Chicago Ave, 312-397-4010, tickets here

Due Lire Uncorks in North Center
DUE TIME

Due Lire Uncorks in North Center

Ah, Friday night. The loosened ties. The quiet satisfaction of conquering another week. The short-rib ravioli... You handle the first two, and leave the third to this snug enoteca freshly opened in North Center. It’s BYOB for now, so we guess you’ve just been tasked with wine, too.

Now open, Due Lire, 4520 N Lincoln Ave, 773-275-7878

Sunday
Gospel Brunch in West Town
SOULED OUT

Gospel Brunch in West Town

We’re not your mom or anything, but... we’re just going to say it: child, you’re too skinny. You need a brunch that will put some meat on those bones. Waffles, syrup, fried chicken, that sort of thing. Also, a side of live gospel music. So, like a church that lets you bring vodka for its Bloody Mary mix.

Sundays starting Nov 7, 11am-3pm, Dee’s Place, 2114 W Division St, 312-348-6117

Drive-In Movie Double Feature
TAKE A BACKSEAT

Drive-In Movie Double Feature

Maybe you thought drive-in season had finished. It’s not summer anymore... or 1957, for that matter. But here’s an evening of a plein air cinema—a double feature of the Coen Brothers’ The Big Lebowski and Robert Altman’s The Long Goodbye. Bring a date, a blanket and something convertible.

Nov 7, 6pm, $15 per car, 1100 E North Ave, call WBEZ for info, 312-948-4600
