Stroll through downtown on the Dead and Undead Walking Tour, where you’ll learn all about Chicago’s gangster past, and the ghosts that are still lingering. (LaSalle St and Wacker Dr, 150 W Wacker Dr, 8pm. $24)
New York rockers Cymbals Eat Guitars return to Chicago to tour their latest album, Pretty Years. Head to the Empty Bottle to drink a few beers, play pool and listen to great new music. (Empty Bottle, 1035 N Western Ave, 9pm. $12)
