Join Mick Dumke and Ben Joravsky at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia Ave., for First Tuesdays with Mick and Ben tonight at 6:30pm. Their guests this month are veteran political reporters Mary Ann Ahern and Carol Marin. Admission is $5. 21+
Tuesday Funk is back in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St., tonight with guests Christopher Sweet, Robert O'Connor, Mare Swallow, Lori Rader-Day and Chuck Sudo. Eden Robins and Andrew Huff co-host. Doors open at 7pm -- no earlier, we're serious. Don't ruin it for everyone else. But do get there as close to 7 as you can, because the room fills up quickly (hence no admittance before 7). The show starts at 7:30pm. Admission is free, but you must be 21 or older. RSVP on Facebook.
