The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Grace Perry

1. Eat your way through the West Side

You’d better come hungry to the Wicker Park & Bucktown Fall Dinner Crawl. Choose one of four routes to gobble up all the culinary options that these neighborhoods have to offer. (Wicker Park/Bucktown, various restaurants, 6pm-9pm. $35)

2. Catch some first-rate stand up comedy

On-the-rise stand-up comedian Aparna Nancherla is bringing her smart, dry standup to the Hideout tonight. This Late Night With Seth Meyers writer is not to be missed. (The Hideout, 1354 W Wabansia Ave, 8:30pm. $12)

3. Learn everything to know about whiskey

Take a class on American whiskey from award-winning bartender Peter Vestinos. After a couple hours with Vestinos, you won’t have to feign a whiskey palette anymore. (The Winchester, 1001 W Wabansia, 5:30pm. $75)
