The Hideout (1354 West Wabansia) holds its Soup and Bread weekly fundraiser tonight from 5:30-8pm (or until the soup runs out). Local chefs and foodies prepare a selection of soups for your casual slurping from the bar's crock pots, with (encouraged) donations going to a local food-related charity. This year each week has a theme, and tonight's is "Down under." Event is age 21+, but children can be admitted if accompanied by an adult.
The Logan Theatre kicks off Wednesday Rewind, a weekly late-night screening series for people who enjoy cheezy & weird films, with a screening of the Mexican punksploitation film Intrepidos Punks! The screening starts at 10:30pm, and is a steal at a mere $3 admission. Full details at the Logan Theatre's Website. Logan Theatre: 2464 North Milwaukee. (773) 342-5555.
