The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Grace Perry

1. Tuck in with some great storytellers
Listen to talented Chicago writers share their latest work at the monthly reading series Tuesday Funk. As if you needed an excuse to go to Hopleaf. (Hopleaf, 5148 N Clark St, 7pm. Free.)

2. Make it a night at the theater
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time recounts the story of a gifted teenager on the autism spectrum solving the murder of his neighbor’s dog. Catch this tour while it’s in Chicago. (Oriental Theatre, 24 W Randolph St, 7:30pm. $25-$98.)

3. Soak up a Chicago holiday tradition
Christkindlmarket isn’t really Christkindlmarket without a little snow on the ground. Grab a mug of hot chocolate and knock out some gift shopping in this holiday wonderland. (Daley Plaza, 50 W Washington St, 11am-8pm. Free.)
