Comedic musical duo Good For The Jews is stopping in at Schuba’s this weekend as part of their “Putting the Ha! in Hanukkah” national tour, serving up hipster rock mockery about the best and worst of Jewish life: JDate and Jewish chicks, bar mitzvahs and being Jewish during Christmastime.
Schuba's, 3159 N. Southport, 12/27, Doors at 7:30 pm, show at 8 p.m., $20

Music Box’s 25th annual Christmas Show kicked off last Friday, with a rowdy (and somewhat tedious) audience group sing-a-long of Christmas carols prior to screenings of It’s A Wonderful Life or Bing Crosy’s White Christmas … or for those especially Christmassy souls – the films back-to-back. Tonight the Music Box will be presenting a one-night-only “Good Santa/Bad Santa” double feature: Miracle on 34th Street followed by Bad Santa, starring Billy Bob Thorton.
Music Box Theater, 3733 N. Southport Ave., through 12/24, tickets and showtimes vary. “Good Santa/Bad Santa” double feature screens tonight only starting at 7:00

The 3rd annual B News Bridgeport Quiz Show is taking place tonight at Bernice's tavern, your chance to school the locals on your knowledge of Chicago history; particularly the historical minutiae related to Bridgeport, Chicago politics and the South side. It is also not widely known that last year Chicagoistas Kevin Robinson and Chuck Sudo placed fifth in the tournament, a mighty feat.
Bernice's, 3238 South Halsted, 12/22, 7:00 p.m., Free. Food provided by a special guest star!
