    One of our top experiences in years of coming to Chicago. The group of actors were fun and raunchy, breaking down Macbeth into a side splitting tale that allowed anyone to follow along. If you have a questionable sense of humor, like to drink (or at least don't mind being one of the sober few), you will thoroughly enjoy every minute of this "Whose Line Is It Anyways" meets Shakespeare production.
    There wasn't a bad seat in the tiny house. We bid on the King and Queen thrones and won, spending the evening being pampered, part of the production, and on the only seats with cushions. It was worth the $.
    Be prepared to spend 90 minutes laughing, being included in the actors scenes, given free drinks here and there, and blushing once or twice.
    Do not come here if swearing offends you, you mind sitting cheek to cheek with your neighbor, you frequent AA, or dirty jokes make you uncomfortable.

    I've been to the Siskel Film Center a few times over the past several years, and I've come to appreciate it as a wonderful venue for interesting and unique films. It's located right on North State Street, just a couple of blocks south of the Chicago River. The film center occupies the second floor of the building; and there is an elevator to take people there in addition to a stairway. The most recent visit was to see a new documentary about Benjamin Marshall, a Chicago architect who designed the Drake Hotel, the Blackstone Hotel, the Edgewater Beach Hotel, and the Schubert Theater, among many other buildings in Chicago in the early 20th century as well as countless buildings across the country. The film was produced by the Benjamin Marshall Society, which also sponsored the showing that was followed by a panel discussion on Benjamin Marshall as well as a nice reception. In the past, I have also viewed other documentaries as well as feature films that are unlikely to appear in local theaters, sponsored by a variety of organizations as well as movie studios. Foreign and experimental films are often on the kiosk. If you're in Chicago for any length of time, you'll want to explore the Siskel Film Center website to see what's playing. (One of the questions below asks if the place is "budget-friendly." The Marshall film, panel discussion, and reception were all free of charge; but one needed to have made a reservation. Other things I've attended have had varying prices; so one needs to check the website.)

    What a fun way to explore the city and discover history! We'd do it again in another city and highly recommend. We liked the challenges. It was walkable allowing us to see so many charming places we'd have missed otherwise.
