Get Out & Explore Chicago

9 Nov

Chicago College Life understands that as college students, time and money are two things we value.  Sometimes we don’t have enough time to plan out new events, so we stick to routines with our friends: partying at the same house, weekly Jersey Shore nights, and even going to the same bars and restaurants for their specials.  Living in the city can also mean that getting the true nightlife experience can cost you your whole paycheck.

Don’t worry.  Chicago College Life is here to help you change up your routine with a new way to experience Chicago events & nightlife this week!


Tuesday:  Looking for a good laugh?  Check out local comedians at Comedy Tuesdays at Old Town Pub located at 1339 North Wells Street.  Best part of this?  It’s free to get in! 

Wednesday:  Want a new spin on an old game?  Head over to Joe’s on Weed Street (940 West Weed Street) for Raunchy Bingo at 8pm.  The game is only $10 and while there, enjoy some of the drink specials! 

Thursday:  Are you a movie goer?  Check out the Chicago Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival.  Theaters are participating across the city and the shows range from $8-10.

Friday: Looking for a dose of drama?  Check out the Steppenwolf Theater’s production of To Kill A Mockingbird. Student tickets are $15 at the box office at 1650 North Halsted. 

Saturday: Like free beer?  Check out the Half Acre Beer Company tour!  RSVP for the 1pm tour!  (4257 North Lincoln Avenue)

Sunday: Are you a football fanatic? Join Bears, Bus & Beer at O’Donovans (2100 West Irving Park Avenue).  Its $10 first come, first serve!  So get there early!

Monday: Want to visit the fishes?  The Shedd Aquarium is having a community discount day on the 15th!  Admission is free to all the basics and there are discounts on the special exhibits.
