1. See an artist like no other perform

Detroit’s Danny Brown brings his rapid-fire wordplay to the House of Blues tonight. Tickets are still available, so grabs yours to catch a live show from a rapper who is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. (House of Blues, 329 N Dearborn Ave, 7:30pm. $25)

2. Watching amazing LGBTQ+ films

Tonight kicks off the Reeling Film Festival, a weeklong celebration of queer filmmaking in various venues on the North Side. Take a peek at the full schedule here.

3. Take a grown-up field trip to the zoo

Have a glass of wine and learn from animal experts at the Lincoln Park Zoo’s Café Brauer. Tonight’s topic: the zoo’s red wolf recovery program. (Café Brauer, 2021 N Stockton Dr, 6pm. $17, $14 for zoo members)
