The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Grace Perry

1. Go to your favorite museums in Chicago

It’s the most wonderful week of the year to go to Chicago’s cultural institutions! Take advantage of extended hours, special programming and discounted admissions all over the city this week. (Various locations—see listing for details)

2. Treat gender like a complete joke

The monthly variety show, Gender Is A Drag, returns to iO Chicago tonight. See why the gender binary is so laughable through improv, sketch, stand-up and everything in-between. (iO Chicago, 1501 N Kingsbury St, 8pm. $17)

3. Go to a high-profile theater world cabaret

See actors Lauren Molina and Nick Cearly strip down to their underthings in their cabaret, Skivvies. It’s a one-night only engagement, so catch it while you can! (Uptown Underground, 4707 N Broadway, 8pm. $25)
