Happy weekend, lovers! If playing in the snow isn’t the only activity on your agenda for the next three days, here are some further diversions.
That hilariously quirky Claire Zulkey of WBEZ hosts her event ‘Funny Ha Ha’ at The Hideout starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door.

Nosh on all-you-can-eat chili at the Hashbrown Chili Cook-off at the Spudnik Press Coop. $10 gets you five tickets and $25 gets you a VIP package (five large chili portions, a golden spoon and a complimentary signature cocktail). Event is from 6 – 10 p.m.
Silvie’s Lounge hosts Chicago Ukulele Cabaret, an open mic-style event for ukulele players. Tonight’s theme is “Sorry I Forgot About Valentine’s Day.” Admission is free, and the show begins at 8 p.m.
Spots to watch the Oscars

Cocktail attire is required; tickets start at $100 for general admission.
