The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Grace Perry

1. Dance the night away to slow jams

Logan Square’s monthly queer dance party Slo ‘Mo is on again tonight at the Whistler. Come ready to grind to Drake, Janet Jackson, Prince and more. (The Whistler, 2421 N Milwaukee Ave, 9pm. Free)

2. Go full Neil Degrasse Tyson…kind of

Take a grown-up field trip to the Adler Planetarium for its 21+ event series, Adler After Dark. Learn about galaxies far, far away with a drink in hand. (1300 S Lake Shore Dr, 6pm. $25 at the door, $20 in advance)

3. See yet another Chicago artists at his best

South Side rapper Mick Jenkins brings his brilliant lyricism to Pilsen tonight. A peer of Chance the Rapper’s, Jenkins is another striking voice to come out of Chicago’s hip-hop scene.  (Thalia Hall, 1807 S Allport St, 9pm. $10, with RSVP $3)
