    Kathy Griffin is your hostess with the mostess.

    Never one to take her celebrity too seriously, Kathy Griffin simultaneously savors and skewers stardom. (Must be her Midwestern roots.) Catch the Chicago-born comedienne as she hosts Bravo's "A List Awards" on Wednesday, April 15 at a cheeky viewing party at Lakeview's Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club.

    The "A List Awards," which feature such accolades as "Reality's Guiltiest Pleasure," "Sexiest TV Moment" and "A List: Abs," will air on Kit Kat's five jumbo-sized screens at 9PM, but the festivities, including performances by the famous Kit Kat Divas, will take place throughout the evening (Kit Kat is open from 5:30PM until 2AM on Wednesday). Bravo-inspired cocktails will add some tongue-in-chic humor to the proceedings, such as the "Auf Wiedersehen," with Absolut Pear vodka, pineapple juice and a splash of champagne; the "Top Chef Tini," with Vox vodka, St. Germain Elderflower liqueur and a splash of champagne; and the "Skinny Girl Margarita," featuring Bethenny's prescribed mix of Sauza Hornitos Plata Tequila, triple sec and lime juice. All cocktails are half-priced ($5.50) in honor of the occasion.

    Kit Kat chef Matt Stovey will also have some fun with the evening's menu, offering buy-one, get-one entrees, such as the "Make Me a Supermodel," with rock shrimp, spinach, mushrooms and a white wine-cream sauce over spinach linguine ($18). We won't tell Tyson.

    The first 50 guests will score goodie bags, so make it an early evening, rock star.
