Things to do for April 14, 2011

The Weekender

Lady Arm Wrestlers, Whiskeymobiles and Your Taxes

The weekend is claiming you as a dependent.

Thursday
Tax Day Party at Hub 51
NICE AND E-Z

Tax Day Party at Hub 51

Complicated rules. Deadlines. Rampant accountants. Yes, the late-night scene in this town can be tough. But at least your taxes are done, so come celebrate at Hub 51, where the entire bottle list will be half-price... and the other half is next year’s entertainment write-off.

Apr 14, Sub 51, 51 W Hubbard St (at Dearborn), 312-828-0051

Whiskey Night at Blokes & Birds
STREET LEGAL

Whiskey Night at Blokes & Birds

WhiskeyFest rolls into town this weekend... quite literally. A “mobile speakeasy” stops in front of this Wrigleyville Brit pub, offering info on whiskey and a free drink token for inside. After you redeem it, stick around for a multicourse whiskey-infused venison dinner. We suspect it pairs well with whiskey.

Apr 14, 5pm, Blokes & Birds, 3343 N Clark St (between Roscoe and Aldine), 773-472-5252

Friday
Nonnie Threads Trunk Show
NONNIE THE WISER

Nonnie Threads Trunk Show

Shirts. You like them. You know a lot about them. We’d wager a fin you’re wearing one right now. If not, there’s always this trunk show featuring Nonnie Threads, the line we told you about last year, with new spring-worthy upperwear. Your shoulders will thank you.

Lady Arm Wrestling
FOREARMED AND DANGEROUS

Lady Arm Wrestling

You like a woman with a mind of her own. Who can handle a drink. Who can open her own damn pickle jar. So you’ll want to be here for a serious night of elbow-bending... and, of course, to watch some female arm wrestlers really go at it.

Tuesday
Open Auditions for Blue Man Group
BLUED IN

Open Auditions for Blue Man Group

Listen, there’s a good chance you won’t use the following information. And that’s fine. You’re pretty content with the corner office and all that. But, look: the Blue Man Group... they’re hiring. And, well, we’ve seen your confetti cannon skills. So... just think about it, okay?

Apr 19, 10am-4pm, Blue Man Group, Briar Street Theatre, 3133 N Halsted St, 773-348-4000
