Ticket price includes bike, helmet and guide. Reservations are recommended. Bobby's Bike Hike, River East Docks at Ogden Slip. 7pm. $35, students/seniors (65+) $30, kids under 4 $10.
ART & DESIGN
"Jeremiah Hulsebos-Spofford: Hall of Khan" Hulsebos-Spofford updates and undermines the traditional equestrian monument in this site-specific installation, which periodically brings live horses into the gallery. Hyde Park Art Center. 10am–8pm.
The Comedy Evening This Lincoln Park stand-up night might just be our new favorite room. The lineup is varied and often full of surprises, and the musical intros by DJ Nate Burrows are a nice touch. Wise Fools Pub. 9pm.

American Rhythm Center. 10am–7:30pm. $260 for one class per day and up, advance $235 and up, plus $25 registration fee.
Matthew Sweet The serendipitous pairing of talent and timing has led to many an unlikely breakthrough, with the ‘90s success of Matthew Sweet's string of awesome power-pop discs one such example. Sweet's touring in the wake deserved rediscovery thanks to the 20th anniversary of his creative and commercial apex, Girlfriend. Now Altered Beast is two decades old. Dig that up, too. His most recent platter is Modern Art. City Winery. 8pm. $35–$45.
