Written by

1. Drink beers with queers

Chances Dances’ chiller—but just as queer—little sister, Off Chances, hits Danny’s Tavern tonight. It’s a must-do for anyone looking for an alternative to Boystown bars. (Danny’s Tavern, 1951 W Dickens Ave, 10pm. Free)

2. Catch the hottest stand-up comics in Chicago

The rotating lineup at Chicago Underground Comedy never fails to showcase smart, fresh and up-and-coming comedians. See these local stand-ups now before they blow up. (Beat Kitchen, 2100 W Belmont Ave, 9:30pm. $5)

3. Get bougie at the MCA

Enjoy the gorgeous weather this week with a cocktail or two on the MCA patio. This week’s free jazz performance features Juli Wood’s Chicago Calling. (Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 E Chicago Ave, 5:30pm. Free)
