The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Nick Kotecki

1. Delve into psychology

Good for Otto takes an immersive, engaging look inside a profession of passion, following Connecticut mental health professional Robert Michaels as he assists his patients through depression and various other mental illnesses. (The Gift Theatre, 4802 N Milwaukee Ave, 7:30pm. $20–$35)

2. Start the party early

Begin your Mardi Gras celebration before the holiday even arrives with the third annual Pardi Gras: Masqueerade Extravaganza put on by Lesbifriends. This year's theme is "Feathers vs. Leathers" and attendees are encouraged to dress accordingly. (Progress Bar, 3359 N Halsted St, 9pm. No cover)

3. See free art

Local artists Dianna Frid and Richard Rezac collaborate on "Split Complementary," a mixed-media art exhibition featuring a combination of bright sculptures and rare books from the Special Collections Department of DePaul’s John T. Richard Library and as well as other objects from DePaul's permanent collection. (DePaul Art Museum, 935 W Fullerton Ave, 11am. Free)
