    Feel a little closer to these statuettes at the Oscar Night party at the Gene Siskel Film Center.

    You canceled your spring vacation due to the crummy economy. You've traded in your weekly Thai food takeout for 35 cent Ramen noodles in an effort to save money, and you've even started coloring your OWN hair. But when it comes to Oscar Night, you want to live it up a little – experience a dash of glitz and glamour right here in Chicago. Celebrate Oscar Night at the only officially sanctioned party in the city at the Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St. This Sunday, Feb. 22 from 6 p.m. to midnight, enjoy a full dinner buffet compliments of Food for Thought, along with champagne, wine and beer. The HDTV telecast begins at 7 p.m., so you won't miss a second of the 82nd annual Academy Awards. Bid on silent auction and raffle items throughout the evening, and even take a turn on the red carpet on your way in, so you'll want to dress accordingly.  As a souvenir, bring home the same official Academy Awards program the starts get.  And you thought you and Angelina had nothing in common.
    Tickets are $150; $250 for VIP. Call 312-846-2072 for more information.
