Carmen Electra will be in town to host a Lingerie Fashion Show Saturday at Enclave nightclub, accompanied by a live DJ set from KORN’s Rob Paterson. Featured unmentionables will be by local lingerie shop Isabella Fine. [Ed.note: Tankboy here. Um, I may be a dude, but every girl I know LOVES Isabella's, so at least Electra has SOME class.] We are thinking this will likely be sort of a douchey event, but actually, seeing models strut their stuff in person is pretty gosh durn amazing.
Enclave, 220 W. Chicago Ave., 11/22, 9:00 p.m. – 3 a.m., Tickets $20, 21+

Meeting again this month is Sewing Rebellion, an informal sewing circle of sorts meant to help emancipate ourselves from mass-produced goods by learning how to sew. (A tad ironic eh, 60's feminist movement?) Spend an afternoon learning sewing skills, working on individual projects and just having a chat and a snack with others in the group.
Mess Hall, 6932 N Glenwood, 11/23, noon to 4 p.m., Free
