Looking for something to do today? Agenda‘s got you covered.
Most organized crawls are of the pub or bar variety, but not the Fall Dinner Crawl. The Wicker Park and Bucktown Chamber of Commerce guides three separate treks—the “Fork,” the “Knife,” and the “Spoon”—to standout restaurants including Antique Taco, Trencherman, and the recently opened Umami Burger. No risk of passing out here, unless it’s from a food coma. Registration required.
“Il Sogno del Marinaio—guitarist Stefano Pilia, drummer Andrea Belfi, and bassist Mike Watt—is Watt’s first sustained collective since Firehose in the mid-90s, as well as one of his edgiest, most artful bands since the Minutemen,” writes Peter Margasak in Soundboard. “Watt’s nimble, muscular bass dominates, and his cohorts clearly appreciate the Minutemen.” See the band tonight at Schubas.
Lyric Opera returns to the well tonight with a new staging of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, the same opera they performed for their inaugural production back in 1954. Our Deanna Isaacs recommends checking it out, writing “Goodman Theatre artistic director Robert Falls, moonlighting in the Lyric director’s chair, has moved the story forward in time, setting it in 1920s Spain to better explore what he sees as the darkly modern psychology of its antihero.”
