5 things to do today: Sunday, May 26
MB Financial Bike the Drive 2013 Hear that? That's the blissful silence of a car-free Lake Shore Drive. Savor it, if just for few hours, when Bike the Drive shuts down LSD to motorized vehicles from Bryn Mawr to 57th Street. Starting from Columbus and Jackson Drives, you can ride your bike 15 miles to Bryn Mawr, and, if you're up for it, hoof it another 15 miles back south to the post-ride festival at the Columbus and Jackson start point. Be sure to take advantage of the three rest stops along with way! Helmets required; sign up at bikethedrive.org. Columbus and Jackson Aves. 5:30am–noon. $48, day-of $58.
We're All in This Room Together The e.t.c.'s 36th revue is a breezy and carefree charmer and features outstanding energy and performances from a mostly new cast. We loved it. The Second City e.t.c. 7pm. $23–$28.
John Talabot + Lemonade Barcelona's John Talabot might make music too hazy for Ibiza, but it still conjures the beach. An equatorial mugginess hangs over last year's hypnotic Fin, an album for all-night partiers to spin as they squint at the sunrise. Tropical and nostalgic are vibes far too familiar in the wake of chillwave, but Talabot manages to come off as exotic. Wrapping his face in tin foil doesn't hurt. It goes without saying that electro-act Lemonade has it's mind stuck on summer, too. Lincoln Hall. 8pm. $20.
GAY & LESBIAN
Brunch Gone Wild We have to hand it to mini, it has got one of the better brunch buffets on Halsted. Nothing wrong with bottomless glasses of Champagne to celebrate the Sabbath! minibar. 11am–3pm. $20.
Chance the Rapper + Sir Michael Rocks It's inevitable and stupid that Chance the Rapper will be compared to Chief Keef. Yes, both are from the South Side, but their differences run far deeper than one being from Englewood, the other from Chatham. The headier and occassionally silly hip-hop of Chancelor "Chance" Bennett has nothing to do with trap rap. Because of geography, Kanye comparisons are common, too, but that's not exactly right, either. Well, Chance perhaps calls to mind College Dropout, when Kayne was nerdier and hungry. Chance has every chance to be this year's Kendrick Lamar. Metro. 7pm. Sold out, but tickets can be found online.
