This weekend marks the opening of new exhibit The City Lost & Found at the Art Institute, a collection of photographs and other works capturing the urban jungles of New York, Chicago and Los Angeles from 1960 to 1980. An opening reception kicks off the collection tonight from 6 to 8 p.m., and it will be on display until January 11 of next year. An RSVP is requested. Make it a date: Have dinner at The Gage across the street or Tesori two blocks away after browsing the gallery.
Watch an audio and visual art show at the beautiful Mana Contemporary art space in Pilsen. Show starts at 8 p.m. and continues until 10 p.m. Make it a date: Get drinks and appetizers beforehand at Dusek’s.
Laugh, possibly cry, and feel lots of emotions at 20×2, an event at Schuba’s featuring twenty guests from different walks of life answering a “question of the day” for two minutes each. $10 tickets available at the door. Make it a date: Schuba’s does serve dinner, in addition the its next-door restaurant Harmony Grill, and has an ample drink selection. I smelled a plate of butternut squash ravioli pass by me when I visited the other night, and I wished I’d chosen to eat there.
