The three best things to do today in Chicago

The Improvised Shakespeare Co.
The Improvised Shakespeare Co.

1. Learn from high school all over again

Okay, we’re not saying you have to re-live high school. But we are saying that missing out on Albany Park Theater Project’s immersive show Learning Curve is a detention-worthy mistake. (Ellen Gates Starr High School, 3640 W Wolfram St, 7:30pm. $40, $18 for CPS students and faculty)

2. Laugh Elizabethan style

Watch the stellar improvisers of Improvised Shakespeare create a whole new Shakespeare play right in front of your eyes, complete with literary references, proper language and even some iambic pentameter. (iO Chicago, 1501 N Kingsbury St, 8pm. $16)

3. Develop your beer palette

Learn which beers pair with various cheeses and meats at Goose Island’s Beer and Cheese Pairing Event. Because charcuterie boards aren’t just for wine anymore. (City Winery, 1200 W Randolph St, 7pm. $60)
