Harvest HopDown We could talk about the fact that there will be 10 Midwestern breweries competing for your approval as well as live jazz and light bites, but who are we kidding? It’s your last chance to do some serious early evening drinking in Millennium Park. Check out short films about mermen (male mermaids, of course), Call of Duty, and killer trees (plus one man’s six-minute quest to figure out the heat in a smart home) at what has been called one of North America’s best short film festivals.

Evil Dead The Musical Bust out your boomsticks for the closing weekend of Evil Dead The Musical, based on the cult classic films starring Bruce Campbell. For maximum gore, "splatter zone" tickets are available where decapitated demons will spew blood on the front rows. Fun times. Grab a "cageside" table and check out scantily-dressed ring girls at this championship matchup between Brian Houston and Louis Taylor, plus plenty of other bloody fights and badass moves such as the "guillotine choke".
