Show: The Chicago Aldermen Project: 50 Aldermen/50 Artists closes tonight; pick up a copy of the Reader, take our aldermanic quiz, and turn it in at the party for the chance to win a Chicago-centric KHS commuter bike. Or take it online.
7-11pm, Johalla Projects, 1561 N. Milwaukee, free.
Dinner: The Bluebird This late-night lounge/wine bar/gastropub from the owners of Webster’s Wine Bar is a pleasantly understated space, outfitted in a sort of rustic-minimalist vein. The seasonal menu features dishes like ale-braised rabbit with mushrooms, bacon, and Manchego served on fettucine.
