Long weekends leave us feeling refreshed and energized for the week ahead. You’re going to need that extra energy to keep up with this week’s social calendar, Bitches.
You don’t have to be a dude to get a kick out of the Chicago Auto Show. The auto show, which is the largest of its kind on this continent, brings jaw-dropping vehicles from all around the world to Chicago. Even if you don’t have a car in the city, you’ll leave wanting one. Get all of the details right here.
Chicago attracts tons of world-class musicians. On this Wednesday night, the city is hosting two big names—one that your parents taught you, and another that was on repeat at your college frat parties. Rock legends AC/DC will be playing at the United Center, and tickets are available here. “Trap King” Fetty Wap will be headlining the House of Blues, and you can find tickets here.
Thursday is National Drink Wine Day, so you have the obey the holiday and celebrate properly. If you’ll be going out for your wine, Coconutz in the Gold Coast will have a $5 wine special on Thursday. Coconutz 12-course tasting menu dinner will also come with free wine pairings—it’s a win-win. Get all of the details here.
Pink isn’t only for Valentine’s Day. It’s also the symbol of breast cancer awareness, which along with ovarian cancer, the Tickled Pink benefit will be supporting. This fabulous event will feature live music and dancing, and open bar, and most importantly — food from Chicago’s top chefs. Proceeds from Tickled Pink support Bright Pink, a national non-profit focused on breast and ovarian cancer prevention. Get your tickets here.
Dance for another great cause at the Chicago Dance Marathon, supporting patients and their families receiving treatment at the Lurie Children’s Hospital. You’re going to want to forgo the stilettos for this one, as the dancing will be non-stop for eight hours. Learn more about the cause and sign up here.
You don’t have to be a sommelier to enjoy champagne, but knowing a little bit about it definitely enhances the experience. Impress your Bitches the next time you meet up for brunch by attending ENO’s Bubbles of the World class. Led by ENO’s sommeliers, this in-depth tasting and class will teach you the difference between champagne and sparkling wine, with some cheese plates and charcuteries you help you stay focused.
