Things to do for March 25, 2010

The Weekender

BYOB Brunch, Pants Parties and Flappers

The weekend thirsts for power. And possibly a martini.

Thursday
1 New Perk
PERKS

1 New Perk

This week, Perks gets you up to 60% off your next hotel room via Tablet Hotels' new invite-only Private Sale service, along with a way to get a free room upgrade and some gratis champagne. (And no, it doesn't involve looting the minibar.)

Re.Stock Pop-Up Shop
SALE-ING

Re.Stock Pop-Up Shop

You never quite know where your style inspiration will come from next, but we have a good feeling about Lakeview this weekend. This temporary storefront will be like a spring field in bloom, blossoming with goods from Ted Baker, Modern Amusement and Björn Borg—your umlauts will thank you.

Mar 25-26, 4-8pm, Mar 27-28, noon-6pm, Re.Stock, 3221 N Broadway, 312-243-9434

The Modern Gatsby at Underground
CAUSING A FLAPPER

The Modern Gatsby at Underground

F. Scott Fitzgerald had his version of the 1920s, so it's time you have yours. This party-slash-fashion-event features custom shirts from Nicholas Joseph, Goorin hats, plus hot-lather shaves, massages, up-tempo DJs and cocktails celebrating the Roaring Twenties. No bathtub required.

Saturday
No Pants Party at Crobar
OFF THE CUFFS

No Pants Party at Crobar

While style—1920s or otherwise—is all well and good, sometimes you're feeling a tad overdressed, which this party remedies rather neatly. Dispense with your pants at the door and you'll skip the cover. Plus, the best pair of underwear will win a $500 vodka gift certificate, which, honestly, is better than pants anyway.

Mar 27, 9pm, no pants = no cover, Crobar, 1543 N Kingsbury St, 312-266-1900

Sunday
BYOB Brunch at Sabor Saveur
LE BRUNCH

BYOB Brunch at Sabor Saveur

Nothing against huevos rancheros, but sometimes you want something slightly French on Sunday morning. So grab a bottle of champagne and head to the new brunch at this sexy French-Mex BYOB, where you'll find Oaxaca cheese quiche Lorraine, filet mignon chilaquiles and confirmation that Paris-Mexico City relations are still strong.

Sat-Sun, 11am-3pm, Sabor Saveur, 2013 W Division St, 773-235-7310

Monday
Mid-Century Furniture Auction Preview
EAMES TO PLEASE

Mid-Century Furniture Auction Preview

You're going to need to sit down for this one. The preview of next week's auction of a stunning collection of furniture from Charles and Ray Eames, the ultimate in chair-design perfection, starts today, meaning you can take them out for a test drive—er, sit. Be careful though—your love seat is the jealous type.

Preview Mar 29-Apr 7, 10am-5pm, auction Apr 8, noon, Wright, 1440 W Hubbard St, 312-563-0020
