The CISC Spring Event

The Chicago Interactive Social Club (CISC) is hosting another night of networking for the interactive industry at NV Penthouse Lounge on Thursday, May 24th. These events usually entail free drinks and appetizers for an hour and a huge crowd that will severely limit your ability to take advantage of the open bar. NV Penthouse Lounge is a nice spot, but it doesn't do well with large crowds, especially on the patio that is roughly the size of a CTA bus shelter.

Sebastian Grey Clothiers Summer Fashion Show

The Underground and HALO [For Men] are hosting another Sebastian Grey Clothiers' Fashion Show on Friday, May 18th. This one will feature the new line of summer menswear and include a special performance by The Electric Funketeers--whose music is hopefully as awesome as their name...

This might be fun, but make sure you arrive early. They usually have a hosted bar during these events, but I can't confirm anything for this one. Good luck!

Sleeping with the Artist Salon Series

The Sleeping with the Artist Salon Series at the Hotel Palomar is taking place on Thursday, May 17th. No, this is not a collection of short stories written by Thomas Kinkade's groupies in the style of 50 Shades of Grey. Guests will be able to view a collection of art from local artists while enjoying wine and hors d'oeuvres from Sable Kitchen & Bar.

The $10 mandatory cover charge suggested donation for this event will score you a raffle ticket, and the satisfaction of knowing that your money will benefit the Chicago Arts Partnership in Education

Juicy Couture Beach Weekend Packing Party

Juicy Couture and Jena Gambaccini of ChiCityFashion.com teamed up to host the Beach Weekend Packing Party at the Juicy Couture store on Wednesday, May 16th. Attendees can indulge with light appetizers and cocktails while receiving a 20% discount on purchases. Unfortunately this event is not taking place at the beach, despite the fact that the store is located less than a mile from an actual beach. They better put some sand on the floor and seagull poop on the shelves to make it feel somewhat authentic!

Dollybird Fashion Show

Dollybird Jewelry is hosting a fashion show to debut its new Stormy Spring/Summer line at Underground on Friday, May 11th.  RSVP quickly to attend the private VIP reception (free booze). You'll definitely want to arrive early because this place will become crowded quickly on a Friday night, AND special gifts will be given to the first 50 guests. I hope they're giving out bedazzled slap bracelets!

Man Up

Van Buren Gentlemen's Salon is hosting a styling event for bros on Thursday, June 7th at the 235 West Van Buren building. Guests will receive complimentary grooming services, cocktails, and appetizers while enjoying one of the best views in the city. Judging by the list of sponsors on the flyer, this event is going to be the bee's knees!

Don't forget to hang around for the VIP After Party on the 46th floor. I'm not sure what qualifies you for VIP status but it's worth a shot. For the entertainment, a stuntman wearing a fashionable, custom-made suit from Trunk Club Men's Outfitters will recreate the opening of Mad Men by jumping out of a window in slow motion while holding a glass of Spicebox Canadian Whisky.
