The three best things to do in Chicago today

Written by
Will Mendelson

1. Groove to the beat with Ryan Hemsworth
Just like the song said, you gotta get down on Friday. So tonight, check out DJ Ryan Hemsworth, who always puts on a good show and start your weekend off right with some sick beats. (The MID, 306 N Halsted St, 9pm. $13.)

2. Relax with a glass of wine and Wanda Jackson
You worked hard this week, and you deserve a glass of wine. While you sip, watch the Queen of Rockabilly, Ms. Wanda Jackson herself, perform at what is sure to be a good show. (City Winery, 1200 W Randolph St, 7:30pm. $26–$32.)

3. Catch The Goonies 30th anniversary screening
Hey you guuuuuuuuuys! It's somehow been 30 years since the classic film's release, and admit it: You still know every line. Celebrate the film's 30th birthday with a special screening and some brews. (Vic Theatre, 3145 N Sheffield Ave, 9pm. $5.)
