"The first rule of Write Club is to tell 5 people about Write Club." What's Write Club, you ask? It's a competition at The Hideout inviting writers to battle it out for fun, glory, and the charity of their choice. Two at a time expound on opposing ideas and the audience votes. This week's theme is "Stuck At The Kids' Table", so all topics are Thanksgiving-related. Tickets are $8 and the event is 21 and up.
 
What do you get when you combine Glinda the Good Witch, CEO clowns, highway robbers, and aliens? Detours, from Gorilla Tango Theater. The show is one night only and only $15, so get your tickets before a house falls on it or something.
 
After filling up on turkey and stuffing and sweet potatoes and green bean casserole, "Skittles For Dinner" doesn't sound like such a bad idea. Carisa and Kevin think it's such a great idea that they've created a whole sketch around it. Tickets are $10 and the show closes tonight, so hurry up before the skittles are all gone.
 
See up-and-coming comedians from one of the best schools in the country. Every Tuesday night Second City Shorts screens under-two-minute shorts based on an audience suggestion from a week before. That's followed by faculty showing that those who teach, also do.

Have a great day! 

Music: The awesome intro and outro music is from Chicago singer/songwriter David Kav
