See the Aurora Borealis without leaving Chicago

See the Aurora Borealis without leaving Chicago

Oh look! We’re all still here! Since I’m sure you were very scared and thus did not make plans for the weekend, your favorite Chicago Quirk has a line-up of fantastic activities taking place in post-apocalyptic Chicago.

Need to get the Christmas spirit to pistol whip you across the face? The Music Box Theatre is playing “White Christmas” and “It’s a Wonderful Life” on a loop until Monday for the 29th Annual Music Box Christmas Show. Santa Claus will welcome you to the festivities, and the theater’s real live organist will lead you in Christmas carols.

The Portage Theater is doing the opposite of the Music Box, presenting Santa’s Scary Saturday. Enjoy a variety of strange “scary” films all day tomorrow. The only reason I would go is to see “Spaceballs,” although that’s definitely not scary…

The famous Cafe Cabaret is giving its monthly show a holiday theme. Visit Cafe Ballou tomorrow night for the fun variety show, “Christmukkah.”

Wanna be fancy? Lockwood Restaurant will host holiday tea and cupcake decorating tomorrow. For $10 you can spend an hour making cupcakes with the hotel pastry team. If you mention “Winter Wonderloop” when making your reservation, you’ll get half off.

If you’ve ever wanted to see the Aurora Borealis but didn’t want to brave the cold, check out Holiday Sky Live at the Adler Planetarium for a glimpse of what it would look like if you were there. Afterwards, you can see what’s it’s like to be inside a snow globe as the dome is turned into the World’s Largest Snow Globe.
