Things to do for March 25, 2010
BYOB Brunch, Pants Parties and Flappers
The weekend thirsts for power. And possibly a martini.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
