MAMA SHAQ: Catch the Diesel in person when Shaquille O'Neal is scheduled to appear at the Michigan Avenue Borders to support his mother, who's reading from her new tome "Walk Like You Have Somewhere to Go." The book covers her struggles as a single mom raising a son by herself, and probably a son who ate as much as four boys. 6:30 p.m., 830 N Michigan Ave

LADIES NIGHT: Grab your girlfriends and hit the latest Shecky's Girls Night Out event at Union Station. Tonight's shopping extravaganza focuses on warm weather fashion trends, spring beauty treatments and plenty of cocktails and beer. Don't forget the gift bag -- Shecky's are legendary. 5 p.m. - 10 p.m., 210 S. Canal St. $10-$25

SSC TURNS 1: The Stimulus Social Club started out as a simple idea from a small group of female professionals and has blossomed into one of the hottest networking events in the city. Every first Wednesday of the month they take over a different nightspot and the take goes to charity. Tonight, it's the 1-year anniversary party at LaSalle Power Co. benefiting Common Threads. 5:30 p.m. - 9 p.m., 500 N. La Salle St., $20
