The three best things to do today in Chicago

David Bowie
David Bowie

1. Glam it up for the late great Bowie

Celebrate what would be David Bowie’s 70th birthday as he would’ve wanted: with a weird, queer, glittery, blow-out dance party. (Berlin Nightclub, 954 W Belmont Ave, 10pm. $7 before 11pm, $10 after)

2. Explore the DIY art of Sadie Benning

Catch even more ‘90s punk feminist art at Sadie Benning: Shared Eye down in Hyde Park. The Le Tigre co-founder and multimedia artist explores gender and sexuality with stunning, brutal honesty. (Renaissance Society, 5811 S Ellis Ave, 10am-5pm. Free)

3. Hang out with Sue

It’s another free day at the Field Museum! Bring your Illinois ID and pay zero dollars for basic admission to the city’s natural history museum. Your wallet and your brain will both be happy. (Field Museum, 1400 S Lake Shore Dr, 9am-5pm. Free basic admission; $17 for Discovery Pass)
