  • Gino's East - The Comedy Bar
    In 1966, taxi drivers Sam Levine and Fred Bartoli finally became fed up with their stop-and-go lives full of honking horns and rush-hour traffic. So they shut off their engines, handed in their keys, and took root. Along with pal George Loverde, they invested in property just off the bustling Magnificent Mile, but then didn?t know what to do with it. According to a 2004 profile in the Chicago Tribune, they got their direction when someone finally said, ?Put pizza in it.? Today, Gino?s still stands at its original spot on Michigan and Superior but has also stretched to 10 other city and suburban locations. Whether dining downtown or in St. Charles, customers find Alice Mae?s signature crust piled with mounds of cheese, sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes, and plenty of fresh toppings?from sausage and pepperoni to jalape?os and ground beef. Hot from the oven, pizzas arrive at tables snuggled inside seasoned deep-dish pans, ready to welcome a fork and knife. Thin-crust varieties are also available for those who don?t know how to work silverware, as is a bounty of sandwiches.

  • Auditorium Theatre
    Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical, Spamalot is based on Monty Python's Holy Grail and incorporates its most memorable moments, such as the killer rabbit and the Knights who say "Ni."? Those jokes were funny enough in the movie, but delivered live, well, you're probably gonna laugh so hard you start bleeding from the palms.? And the New York Times praised the show as "resplendently silly," which only begins to capture how most audience members appear to be heaving in seizures of laughter when the voiceover of God gives King Arthur that wacky advice.

    Girls Night: The Musical will bring to the stage of the 14th Street Theatre a heartfelt, comedic story of five friends celebrating their history and future together while embarking on an epic night of karaoke. Actresses belt out renditions of such female classics as "It's Raining Men," "I Will Survive," and ?Lady Marmalade? amid vibrant set pieces. Theater seating harkens back to intimate cabarets of yore, with up to four seats and a Dean Martin wax figure adorning each table. Groupon holders receive the best non-VIP seats possible (any table other than tables A-G) upon the redemption of their vouchers at the theater's will-call station.

  • Merle Reskin Theatre
    Hosting their 88th annual Christmas production, The Chicago Bar Association casts aside its collective briefcase in favor of costumes and comedy for a laughter-packed revue. Throughout the show, a talented lineup of performers legally splits sides with well-tuned ditties, choreographed dances, and irreverent parodies that poke fun at local and national legal figures, politicians, sports stars and more. Leaving no stone or gavel unturned, acts will also address many of the year's top headlines, allowing audience members to discard silly-putty replicas of newscasters and relive 2011 in style.

  • Underground Wonder Bar
    Amid Chicago's capricious and ever-changing bar scene, Lonie Walker's Underground Wonder Bar has remained a downtown fixture for more than 20 years, and it's no wonder why. Whether it's the live blues, jazz, world, and funk music that echoes through the bar each night, the 4 a.m. closing hour, or the fact that the owner herself regularly takes the stage to sing with her band, the bar seems to embody the Chicago nightlife. An eclectic set of live acts plays to an equally eclectic crowd every night of the week at the spot's two-level, three-stage River North location.
