CULTURE CLUB
Goin Underground

It's happened: you've turned 25. This begs the question, as a semi responsible adult, where do you go to get all the house party charm without having to go to an actual house party? The answer is the PH Comedy Theater.

Located in the heard of Andersonville, just off the Berwyn stop, PH is a comedy hot spot unlike any other in the city. Founded by improv actors and comedians, it is exclusively for the use of improv actors and comedians. It's the alternative to the more institutional options, Zanies and Second City. PH is the new kid on the block, and a place where the little guys decided to carve a place for themselves.

Beyond Lake View

How many times have you planed an “epic bar hoping night” with your friends only to end up wondering the streets drunk, alone, lost, and extremely angry? I'm sure you've seen them before--they're the guys in the button down shirts, stumbling alone down the streets and yelling into their phones; they're the over dressed girls in tiaras crying at the L station; they're anyone and everyone including yourself.The problem often comes down to too much planning and unrealistic expectations. Sometimes its best to think a bit smaller, and to just have fun where you are without making it a point to fit in as many places as possible.

THE HOT SPOT
Alternative Chicago

If it weren't for the bold red arrow with the name NEO painted on the alley wall next to the bisected manikin you probably wouldn’t even know it was there. The literal writing on the wall peaks your curiosity and sends your intimation running wild. You walk down the alley to the back of the building where there’s a large metal door. You almost expect someone to ask you for “the password.” Once inside your senses are instantly overwhelmed by flashing lights and industrial music. As you being to adjust and regain control of your cognitive faculties you realize you have arrived at one of Chicago’s hottest spot for the underground, the alternative, and the strange.

Boozy Brunch at the Wit
