Watch the Cubs game at your favorite spots

North Siders have been watching the Cubs-Dodgers series with bated breath, and tonight is no exception. Bars and restaurants across the city have all kinds of great Cubs specials, so there’s no reason to hole up in your apartment tonight. (Dodgers Stadium in L.A., 7:08pm on FS1)

See the original work of an incredible playwright

Aaron Posner reimagines Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya in his most recent work, Life Sucks. The show defies distinct genre or definition, but is still utterly brilliant. (Lookingglass Theatre, 821 N Michigan Ave, 7:30pm. $35-$65)

Get a good scare in

Have you screamed yet this Halloween season? If not, let’s fix that: House of Torment is an impressive production with a surprise around every corner. (House of Torment Haunted House, 8240 N Austin Ave in Morton Grove, 7pm-10pm. $27)
