The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Sara Freund

1. Sail away on a yacht

Picture this—you’re standing on the top deck of a yacht during sunset with a cold drink in your hand. Is there anything more FOMO-worthy? Get your tickets for Time Out Chicago’s Yacht Party now because the summer is meant to be spent on a boat. (Anita Dee Yacht Charters, 200 N Breakwater Access, 7–9pm. $30)

2. Enjoy an alt-folk show

Bonnie “Prince” Billy and the Bitchin Bajas team up to perform rockin’ tracks from their collaborative record. Rock out, have a drink and get ready for a good time. (Constellation, 3111 N Western Ave, 8:30pm. $25, advance $20)

3. Party in the back lot

Kick off the weekend with the first day of Back Lot Bash at the Laugh Factory, featuring top comics and musicians. Tonight's acts focus on making you laugh, and it's all part of celebrating Pride. (Laugh Factory, 3175 N Broadway St, 6pm. $18–$28)
