Not yet maxxed out by benefits? Have $500 in your pocket? Can make your reservations by the 15th? The Architecture and Design Society of the Art Institute will hold its Modern Ball on Saturday, October 23rd, in the new Renzo Piano designed Modern Wing, with dinner, cocktails, a video, and a live auction offering such morsels as a Chicago River tour with WTTW's Geoffrey Baer, dinner with architect Dirk Denison at L20, and first-class sojourns to Hamburg and Berlin, New York and New Canaan, and Cap Martin, France.
