    The About Last Night crew's hitting tonight's hottest parties, starting off at Neiman Marcus's "Fashion's Night Out", where we plan to ogle the ladies' really big ... fashions.

    We'll publish the evidence first thing Friday. Catch up with us tonight to be included in the video and photo spread. From fashion to celebs, here's our plan:

    Fashion's Night Out
    Neiman Marcus, 737 N. Michigan Ave., 6 to 9 p.m. RSVP at (312) 694-4072
    Consider this Neiman Marcus' response to the down economy. The upscale retailer is attempting to put the fun back in shopping with a huge fashion event. Enjoy makeovers, hair and skin consultations, a beauty photo booth and a fashion show. The ladies will definitely want to check out the Manolo Blahnik fall trunk show, and special appearances by chic handbag designer Lauren Merkin and "Top Chef New York" contestant Radhika Desai.

    Old Town's New Joint
    Old Town Social, 455 W. North Ave. 312-266-2277
    The folks behind Old Town Social purposely kept things on the down-low before officially opening its doors a couple of weeks ago, but tonight we'll check what the buzz is all about at this contemporary spot with an old-fashioned scene. We'll try not to fill up at the charcuterie bar, but we wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't at least sample something from the 60 selection-strong beer list.

    D. Wade Brings the Heat
    Crimson Lounge, 333 N. Dearborn. RSVP at WadeBenefit@gmail.com. $20
    The groupies will be out in full force tonight as NBA star Dwayne Wade hosts a bash, one of many appearances he's making this week to benefit his Wade's World Foundation. Plenty of his ball-playing buddies will be in the house as well, and we're pretty sure plenty of Bulls, Bears and even Blackhawks will be represented. And hey, D. Wade, please show up before midnight -- we've got work to do tonight.
