Film festivals usually mean open bars and swag bags—and true to form, this inaugural fest had both. Tuesday was the opening night of the first-ever Gen Art Chicago Film Festival. "Five premieres. Five parties," the invite read. New York has been hosting the fest for 12 years now, but Chicago scored a stop this year as well. "We are the first Gen Art office to carry on the festival," says Amanda Nosal, director of Gen Art Chicago.

It makes sense, though; Chicago is really making its mark in the film world, and, well, we also love a great party." Read more

’Tis the season for weddings. On Friday night, I attended yet another bachelorette party, this time for S. R., a founding member of Team Lush, who's getting married at the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego this coming weekend. About 10 girls got together to shower the bride-to-be with lingerie and advice before sending her off into matrimonial bliss.
