On Friday Widmer Brothers are throwing a big shebang at Grand Central. Called The Big Chill, the third annual event kicks off the wintry months with music, art, fashion, and—of course—beer. In addition to the DJs and a PDX Pop Now!-benefiting silent local art show, there will be a runway show on the lanes featuring a diverse group of apparel: Atmosphere, Auviq, Looptworks, the US Outdoor Store, and (personal favorite) Phlox (going by PCB for Phlox Clothing Boutique). Between them all are plenty of cold-weather/sports options for men and women, plus something sexy to wear by the lodge fire will a big cup of mulled wine afterward.

The Big Chill goes down starting at 9 pm, for free.
