Things to do for April 11, 2013

The Weekender

Whiskey, Pajamas and Nudity

Pour some weekend on me.

Thursday
Rolex. Cartier. Hublot. Only on Perks.
PERK ALERT

Rolex. Cartier. Hublot. Only on Perks.

Behold: an exclusive batch of Rolexes, Cartiers and other refined vintage watches—only available on Perks. (Your wrist will thank you later.) We’re also getting you 29% off some amazing shave creams, cologne and more. Plus: 25% off some handsome-as-hell headphones. (Bonus: if you’ve got an Outlook.com account, you get an extra 10% off.)

Drinking Rye and Maybe Getting Lucky
RYE’S GUYS

Drinking Rye and Maybe Getting Lucky

Choosing wine to go with lambchetta (that’s lamb parading around as a porchetta) is easy. More difficult: selecting the rye cocktail to go with it. This four-course whiskey dinner answers that stumper. Also, you could win tickets to WhiskyFest Chicago—so you can show off your newfound expertise.

Apr 11, 6:30pm, $80, The Local, 190 E Delaware Pl, 312-280-8887

Friday
Dancing the Merengue in Your PJs
BUENAS NOCHES

Dancing the Merengue in Your PJs

This is simply another one of those Latin-music dance parties where everyone wears pajamas—oh, wait. There probably hasn’t been one of those since Playboy closed its Miami club. There’s also a best-dressed contest. So yes, your silk footie PJs are fine.

Apr 12, 11pm-2am, $10 (no cover for women), Nacional 27, 325 W Huron St, 312-664-2727

Saturday
A New Bloody Mary Brunch in the Loop
BLOODY GOOD

A New Bloody Mary Brunch in the Loop

Toni Patisserie proved a trusty place to pick up a sandwich before your Millennium Park picnic. But now it has a liquor license. So to debut its new weekend Bloody Mary brunch, it’s offering gratis samples of Bloody Marys using Stu’s This Is Bloody Mary mix. Trust must be earned.

A Film Fest for Those with ADHD
CLIP SHOW

A Film Fest for Those with ADHD

This movie fest will show 20 comedic films in 85 minutes. That’s got to be some sort of record. Filling the rest of the time: DJs, cocktails, appetizers from the Boka group and girls in slinky dresses. Basically, it’s a cocktail party with its own YouTube channel.

Apr 13, doors 7pm, show 9pm, $40, Park West, 322 W Armitage Ave, 773-929-1322

Erotic Art and Those Who Love It
NICE AND DIRTY

Erotic Art and Those Who Love It

Art is subjective. Some see a female nude. Others see a naked woman being smeared with body paint in a roomful of strangers. So, so subjective. Anyway, this two-day art show begins with a night of burlesque, cabaret, body painting and something called “human furniture.” Stefon highly recommends it.

Apr 13, 8pm-midnight; Apr 14, 1-4pm; $10 donation, Gallery Provocateur, 1621 N Kedzie Ave, 3rd Fl, 773-698-7179
