Show: Lizz Winstead “Co-creator of The Daily Show and its former head writer, Lizz Winstead is the political satirist I want to spend my evening with when the results start rolling in on Election Day—and fortunately she’ll be here for it, performing her solo show, Dumb-ocracy at Work!: Election Night,” writes Marissa Oberlander.

7:30 pm, Mayne Stage, 1328 W. Morse Ave., 773-381-4554, maynestage.com

Dinner: Pupuseria y Restaurante Cascatleco Second branch of an Albany Park pupuseria with an identical menu to that at the mother ship, meaning stuffed corn cakes hand formed and slapped with a delicacy that renders the masa a crisp, delicate shell, encasing copious amounts of filling, such as bean and cheese, pork rinds and cheese, aromatic loroco, an edible flower, or just cheese.
