1. Have a disgusting Christmas

Sarah Sherman’s all-women storytelling show, Ladylike, invites female and non-binary individuals to share their most vile stories. Proceeds from tonight’s show, A Very Ladylike Christmas, benefit Planned Parenthood. (Café Mustache, 2313 N Milwaukee Ave, 8pm. $5)

2. Flex your useless factoids

Hunker down with a beer, a burger and your brain at Parts and Labor’s weekly trivia night. Otherwise your encyclopedic knowledge of Nicolas Cage movies will be totally squandered! (Parts and Labor, 2700 N Milwaukee Ave, 9pm. Free)

3. Scarf down a potato pancake and spiced wine

Christkindlmarket is only in town for a few more days! Take advantage of this Chicago holiday tradition by drinking glüwein, eating potato pancakes and shopping for ornaments while you can. (Daley Plaza, 50 W Washington St, 11am-8pm. Free)
