Quick Hits Boston: Haute Happenings

Trendsetting Bostonians now have the opportunity to shop in fashion-forward style with a personal stylist, thanks to Trunk Club, which hosted its official grand opening last night to celebrate their new location on Boylston Street. Nordstrom acquired the brand two years ago so you will find many of the same haute styles for men and women here. A personal stylist will help create your new signature look whether it’s an everyday style you need a little help with or a special occasion. You can choose to visit their Boston location while sipping on an afternoon cocktail and meet with a personal stylist or they will send a trunk filled with the latest designs direct to you so you can choose which items you choose to keep or return, all from the comfort of your own home.

Mark your calendars – President Barack H. Obama is coming to Boston May 7 to receive the 2017 Centennial John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum as part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of President Kennedy’s birth. The prestigious award will be presented by Ambassador Caroline Kennedy and her son, Jack Schlossberg.

Tomorrow night, you won’t want to miss The Lenny Zakim Fund’s 8th Annual Casino Night being held at the Four Seasons Hotel. This year’s swanky event is being co-chaired by Boston City Councilor Josh Zakim, film producer and co-founder of Burn Later Productions, Sam Slater and philanthropist, Amy Belkin Mofenson. One of the city’s most anticipated nights will also feature Bravo Media and SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen, who will be in town to host the event. From casino games (Craps, Texas Hold’em, Roulette and Black Jack) by Casino 7, specialty cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres to tasting stations, desserts, music by DJ Hectik, a photo booth by Pro Photo Booth and auctions including trips to Nantucket and New York City for a “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” live taping, event will benefit the fund’s mission to support social justice organizations and grassroots programs throughout Massachusetts.

On Sunday, if you are craving some creative snacks like passed pintxos along with some jazz thrown into the mix, you won’t want to miss local legend Marvin Gilmore (former owner of the well loved Western Front nightclub), who will be at PAGU’s grand opening with a tribute to jazz great Fred Taylor. The event gets started in Cambridge at 3 p.m. and will feature cocktails and festive PAGU food.
