Wabash Tap is hosting a crawfish boil! If you’re a crawfish fan and happen to find yourself living in Chicago, you’re usually stuck with disappointment and longing (or importing frozen mudbugs yourself). Luckily, Wabash Tap is looking out for you. On Saturday, May 21, they will be cooking up over 400 pounds of Crawfish, and guests will be able to eat all they can. Fixins’ on the side will include corn, potatoes and $4 pints of Sam Adams Summer Ale. The event costs $25 per person, and will run from 2p.m. until the food runs out. (1233 S. Wabash)

Rasslin' and Burlesque

Lucha VaVOOM, the LA-based touring showcase combining luchadore wrestling and burlesque, brings its blend of sexo y violenca to the Park West for a special Cinco de Mayo show at 7:30 p.m. Purchase tickets here.
