In just 90 minutes, you'll get the best overview of Chicago’s architecture and its history.  Join friends and colleagues on Wednesday, April 26 for this 2:00 PM tour.

Second City and Dinner at 1959 Kitchen and Bar

“The Second City is sorry not sorry for making you laugh with the 111th Mainstage revue, Do the Right Thing, No Worries If Not. Leave your worries at the door and come laugh yourself into euphoria at the things we have in common, navigating relationships, code-switching, and even high school on TV. Life is good and the multiverse is real in this interactive experience that has everything you want in a comedy show: Stage combat! Truth bombs! Very intrusive vibe checks! Do the right thing and don’t miss this show.”  We’ll grab dinner at 1959 Kitchen + Bar before the 8:00 PM show on Thursday, April 27.
