The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Sara Freund

1. Laugh it off

This alt-comedy show has a reputation for being a comic’s playground. So, take it easy at Chicago Underground Comedy and prepare yourself for five hilarious, eclectic performers. (Beat Kitchen, 2100 W Belmont Ave, 9:30pm. $5)

2. Enjoy the terrace

Enjoy a free concert on the terrace of the Museum of Contemporary art at this weekly Tuesdays on the Terrace event. Bring a date, grab a drink and listen to jazz from Tammy McCann and Mike Allemana. (Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 E Chicago Ave, 5:30pm. Free)

3. Listen to stories

Every month the storytelling series OUTspoken features stories from LGBTQ performers. Hear tales of adventure, love and everything in between. (SideDoor, 100 E Ontario St, 6pm. Free)
