- Protesters gathered at Mayor Rahm Emanuel's home in Ravenswood this afternoon. Chicagoist's Aaron Cynic was on the scene, so come back tomorrow morning for his full update from the field.
- Tonight is NATO Night at Wrigley Field, so if you're going to be around Wrigleyville security will be tight. NATO dignitaries will be in attendance, and NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen will throw out the first pitch. The city will close all streets within a one-block radius of Wrigley Field.
- And just up Clark Street, Tom Morello is headlining a concert at the Metro celebrating Woody Guthrie's birthday, with Jon Langford, Bucky Halker and Holly Near.
- Police are investigating a shattered window at the NBC5 offices downtown. A security guard saw a hole caused by a projectile before the whole window crumbled.
- The Metra Electric Line was shut down for a couple hours this morning after police found a suspicious package at the 55th-57th Street train station in Hyde Park. This is the Metra line that runs underneath McCormick Place, where authorities are on high alert. It turned out to be an empty suitcase.
