The three best things to do in Chicago today

Written by
Will Mendelson

1. Rev up for Girls on the Run
Enjoy unlimited beer from Revolution Brewing, plus appetizers and a raffle. Even better, proceeds benefit Girls on the Run, a national nonprofit that encourages girls to get out there, feel good about themselves and go for a run. (Revolution Brewing, 2323 N Milwaukee Ave, 6:30pm. $50-$60.)

2. Take in a free concert at Downtown Sound: Active Child
What's better than a free concert after a long Monday? Unwind with Active Child and his dreamy electronic sounds. Chicago bassist Matt Ulery opens the show with chamber ensemble Eighth Blackbird. (Millennium Park, Pritzker Pavilion, 6:30pm. Free.)

3. Watch a movie in the park at Fulton River
Tonight, catch Gravity under the stars. Seeing Sandra Bullock and George Clooney try to survive in space never gets old. (Fulton River Park, 601 W Kinzie St, 8:30pm. Free.)
