The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Sara Freund

1. Rock out at a concert

Blonde Redhead bring its dark French pop to an outdoor concert at Pritzker Pavilion. Get there early to see local guitarist Ryley Walker open. (Millennium Park, 205 E Randolph St, 6:30pm. Free)

2. Raise a glass to your bartender

Grab a ticket to Time Out Chicago’s inaugural Bar Awards to celebrate our city’s truly unique bar scene. Guests will get to take advantage of an open bar, delicious bites, giveaways and, of course, a kickass swag bag. (Artifact Events, 4325 N Ravenswood Ave, 7pm. $35)

3. Grab a beer and a slice

Mark the first Monday of the month with a game of bingo, a PBR and a giant slice of cheesy ‘za. You might even be lucky enough to win a few prizes. (Boiler Room, 2210 N California Ave, 9pm. Free)
