The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by

1. Catch our hometown hero perform

Tickets are still available to see Chicago-born comedian and Broad City star Hannibal Buress perform at the gorgeous Chicago Theatre tonight. If you need extra convincing, check out our recent interview with him. (Chicago Theatre, 175 N State St, 8pm. $35–$55)

2. Say goodbye to summer in style

Tonight’s the last Jazzin’ at the Shedd of the summer. If you’ve been itching to down a couple cocktails while hanging with a stingray, hurry—you won’t have another chance until next year. (Shedd Aquarium, 1200 S Lake Shore Dr, 5pm. $20, advance $18)

3. Celebrate Honey Butter Fried Chicken’s Birthday

…By scarfing some delicious Honey Butter Fried Chicken, obviously. The Avondale eatery turns 3 years old today, so celebrate with $3 cocktails all day, and discount chicken meals, too. (Honey Butter Fried Chicken, 3361 N Elston Ave, 11am)
