The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by

1. Try your luck at hipster bingo
Tonight, the Boiler Room transforms into the hippest nursing home around for its monthly PBR Bingo night. Bingo involves zero skill, so you really have no excuses. (Boiler Room, 2210 N California Ave, 9pm. Free.)

2. Peer into kids’ brains
That’s Weird, Grandma takes stories written by CPS students and transforms them into hilarious (and surprisingly heartfelt) skits and songs. (Neo-Futurarium, 5153 N Ashland Ave, 8pm. $12, kids under 12 $6.)

3. Go full Christmas
Christkindlmarket is going full-steam ahead towards Christmas, so head down to Daley Plaza for a mug of spiced wine and some strudel. It’s one of the best parts of the holidays in the city and we've already picked out all of the best things to eat, drink and buy at Christkindlmarket. (Daley Plaza, 50 W Washington St, 11am-8pm. Free.)
