The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Grace Perry

 1. Go to Chicago’s biggest drag show of the year

Sidetrack hosts its annual Dragapalooza (formerly known as Night of 100 Drag Queens) tonight and tomorrow night. Prepare to be dazzled and hopefully a little overwhelmed. (Sidetrack, 3349 N Halsted St, 7pm. $15-$25)

2. Dig into the history of body art

The Field Museum’s latest exhibit, Tattoo, examines the cultural and historical significance of tattoos around the world. The exhibit even features a real tattoo parlor, where artists will be inking up guests. (Field Museum, 1400 S Lake Shore Dr, 9am—5pm. Included in museum Discovery and All-Access tickets)

3. Feel feelings with Frankie Cosmos

Indie rock wunderkind Frankie Cosmos takes the stage at Thalia Hall tonight. The 22-year-old has a knack for honest lyricism and compelling melodies. (Thalia Hall, 1807 S Allport St, 7:30pm. $18)
