On Friday and Saturday nights, the DJ Firm brings some of Chicago's top DJs to Time Out Market Chicago to spin tunes for guests. Enjoy a drink from the Time Out Market Bar or some delicious dishes from one of the food hall's many vendors while you listen (or dance) to the music.
As it turns out, some of the best things in life—or at least, some of the best things to do in Chicago—are free. That's especially true at the start of a new year, when so many of us are nursing a holiday-shaped hole in our wallets (or alternatively, a New Year's resolution to spend less). For free fun this month, beat the cold inside of temperature-controlled greenhouses, check out a series of puppet shows popping up in neighborhoods across the city or honor MLK Day with free film screenings. Plus, don't miss out on gallery shows, markets and other recurring events that won't cost you a dime. Ready to save some money? Check out more of the best free things to do in Chicago this month.
