EAT

DIY Pies
Frasca Pizzeria & Wine Bar 3358 N. Paulina St. 773-248-5222

DRINK

Think Pink
Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club 3700 N. Halsted St. 773-525-1111

Now that Pink has literally landed in L.A.—via helicopter—for the MTV Video Music Awards, the Boystown lounge makes its own entrance with a VMA viewing party (7 p.m.) hosted by Pink impersonator Diva Aurora Sexton featuring more than 200 half-price martinis including the One Last Kiss (Hpnotiq Harmonie liqueur, citrus rum and red grapefruit juice with a sugar rim and a pink glow stick; $6) and eight varieties of $5 mojitos. 5:30 p.m.-2 a.m.

DO

Bring a Ring

That's a Rap
Ultra Lounge 2169 N. Milwaukee Ave. 773-269-2900

Size Matters (FREE!)
Inland Steel Building 77 S. Dearborn St.

View sky-high creations—including Susan Giles' "Crumpled Spire," inspired by Santiago Calatrava's proposed-then-scrapped Chicago Spire skyscraper; and Daniel G. Baird's "Endymion (2)," a scale replica of NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building—on loan from the forthcoming inaugural Expo Chicago art and design event during Chicago Loop Alliance's First Thursdays gallery walk through downtown Pop-Up Art Loop spaces. 5-8 p.m. Full gallery list: popupartloop.com.
