The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by

1. Give yourself a scare

Whether it’s heights or monsters that give you the willies, Fright Fest at Six Flags Great America will definitely freak you out. Go tonight to avoid the inevitable weekend madness. (Six Flags Great America, 542 N Rte 21, Gurnee, 5pm-11pm. See site for pricing details)

2. Let contemporary art stretch your mind

As you might expect by the name, “Abstract/Object” isn’t exactly a series of straightforward paintings. The exhibit explores Moholy-Nagy’s influential, open-minded work from the 1960s to the present. (Art Institute of Chicago, 111 S Michigan Ave, 10:30am-5pm. Price included in museum admission)

3. Put all that random knowledge to use

Treat yourself to a few beers at Parts & Labor’s weekly trivia night. Make sure you bone up on current events beforehand! (Parts & Labor, 2700 N Milwaukee Ave, 9pm. Free)
