Café Brauer, Lincoln Park Zoo
Café Brauer, Lincoln Park Zoo

1. Kick back at the zoo

Head to Café Brauer at the Lincoln Park Zoo for a laid-back evening of drinking and jamming. The Old Town School of Folk Music has talented local musicians lined up and Half Acre beer specials will be on tap. (Café Brauer, 2021 N Stockton Dr, 5:30pm. Free)

2. Win a trove of fresh veggies

Try your luck at the Hideout’s Veggie Bingo night for the chance to win a jackpot of vegetables. Because who needs cash when you have kale? (Hideout, 1354 W Wabansia Ave, 5:30pm. $4 per bingo card)

3. Sip cocktails with the fish

How freaking beautiful have the past few evenings been? Make the most of another gorgeous summer night at the Shedd Aquarium’s weekly cocktail hour. (Shedd Aquarium, 1200 S Lake Shore Drive, 5pm. $20, $18 in advance)
