Steppenwolf brings a little of its current play, Detroit, to Urban Burger, 1578 N. Clybourn Ave., in an event called "Explore: The World of Detroit" tomorrow night. Watch a "pop-up performance" and art inspired by Arcade Fire's The Suburbs, eat, and write a haiku about "the plight, or renaissance, of the mid-American city in a post-globalization economy" for a chance to win a trip to Detroit (the city). Free, but you must RSVP.
