The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Grace Perry

1. Shake out your election eve jitters

Laugh about all 44 Presidents in POTUS: A Comedy Show About Every President Ever. Because, honestly, the world could use more Warren G. Harding jokes. (Cole’s, 2338 N Milwaukee Ave, 9pm. Free)

2. Admire centuries of body art

Tattoos were around long before big biker dudes were inking “MOM” onto their biceps (which might only happen in cartoons, anyway). The Field Museum’s exhibit, Tattoo, explores the timeless tradition.  (The Field Museum, 1400 S Lake Shore Dr, 9am-5pm. Included in museum admission)

3. Have some trivia with your burger

Brush up on otherwise useless factoids and head to Parts and Labor for the bar's weekly trivia night. And remember: the more you drink, the smarter you’ll be. (Parts & Labor, 2700 N Milwaukee Ave, 9pm. Free)
