Akira and YWCA Honor Female Entrepreneurs

Akira in Hyde Park and the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago are hosting a party on Thursday, August 8th, to honor Akira founder Erikka Wang, Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique owner Teresa Ging, and former Telemundo broadcaster and creator of TKK Collection Cosmetics Tsi-Ki Felix. Guests will be treated to complimentary makeovers, wine, cupcakes from Sugar Bliss, and a 10% discount on all non-sale items.

A portion of sales from the evening will benefit the YWCA and its efforts to combat racism and empower women, which is coincidentally the complete opposite of the Republican party's political agenda.

Grant Festival Hump Day Kick-Off Grand Opening Party

CS Magazine and Related Midwest (no relation) are celebrating the grand opening of the The Grant--the newest luxury condominium to pop up in the South Loop--on Wednesday, July 31st. I guarantee this will be a hell of a party with catered food, cocktails, live music performances and entertaining people-watching.

Pants Party for Men

The enormous Room & Board store in River North is hosting a styling party for bros on Thursday, July 18. "Pants experts" from Bonobos and product experts from Kiehl's will be on hand to offer gentlemen advice on coordinating their chinos with appropriate facial moisturizers and such. Surprisingly this event has nothing to do with furniture, but drinks and food will be provided by Goose Island so it's worth a shot!

Stella Artois Cidre

Stella Artois is being quite generous to the boozehounds in Chicago this month. The new Stella Artois Cidre (pronounced "sy-dehr-eh" with a French/Dutch/German accent) will debut at EPIC Sky (ROOFTOP!!!) on Wednesday, July 24. In addition to delicious Cidre there will be music, various food offerings and super competitive games of "boules". I think that's some sort of French skee-ball mixed with Duck, Duck, Goose.
