The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Sara Freund

1. Go on a hunt for eggs

Celebrate the Easter holiday early with an egg hunt in Maggie Daley Park for the whole family. Bring the little ones to search for hidden treasures all around the playground—they probably won't hide any on top of the climbing wall. (Maggie Daley Park, 337 E Randolph St, 10am, $5)

2. Try out some new harmonies

Brooklyn's Lucius bring taut vocal harmonies and happy, drum-beating tunes to Metro, in celebration of the release of the group's latest album, Good Grief. Arrive early to catch Pure Bathing Culture, a Portland-based electro-folk duo that will open the show. (Metro Chicago, 3730 N Clark St, 8:30pm, $25)

3. Witness a heroic battle

Comic book fans and movie buffs can see the premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the New 400 Theater. Those who show up early can become reigning champion in superhero trivia, get prime seating with VIP passes and browse the latest issues at the Third Coast Comics booth. (New 400 Theater, 6746 N Sheridan Rd, 8pm, $15)
