Things to do for April 19, 2012

The Weekender

Hot Shaves, S’more d’Oeuvres and Brigitte Bardot

Stand back, the weekend’s got this.

Thursday
A Shave. A Shirt. A Scotch.
SHIRT SO GOOD

A Shave. A Shirt. A Scotch.

Nothing makes you feel like a new man like a good single malt scotch—unless it’s a complimentary shoeshine and straight-razor shave. Good thing this event has all of the above. Plus, there’s a Lands’ End dress-shirt trunk show. A new man needs a new shirt...

Locking In Your Tee Time
TO A TEE

Locking In Your Tee Time

Your backswing is... improving. Your putt is... a work in progress. But you’ve perfected one crucial element in your game this year: getting your preferred tee time. This site lets you scan 40 Chicago-area golf courses and book online. Just make sure Jordan reimburses you.

Friday
Earning Your Cocktail Merit Badge
HAPPY CAMPERS

Earning Your Cocktail Merit Badge

S’more d’oeuvres. A camping-inspired fashion show from Akira. An hour or so of a complimentary tequila and vodka bar. No, you won’t exactly be roughing it at Lumen’s wilderness-themed party this Friday. But a mosquito net over your table never hurts.

Apr 20, 9pm, no cost until 11pm with RSVP ($20 after), Lumen, 839 W Fulton St (at Green), 312-733-2222, RSVP here

That Sexy Blonde in the Lobby...
THE FRENCH

That Sexy Blonde in the Lobby...

If you’re looking for an after-work drink and a beautiful blonde to stare at, there’s a new Brigitte Bardot photography exhibit launching in the lobby of the Sofitel. It’s designed by Henry-Jean Servat, who thoroughly researched this collection of the French bombshell. And you thought your job was tough.

Saturday
The Shortest Film Festival in Town
CINEMATIC

The Shortest Film Festival in Town

The three-hour Gold Coast Film Festival includes 80 minutes of movies (yes, they’re all very, very short). The rest of the time will be dedicated to the parts of cinema that really matter: drinking martinis and giving out awards. Academy, please take a lesson.

Apr 21, 7-10pm, $35, Park West, 322 W Armitage Ave (between Orleans and Clark), 773-929-1322, tickets here
