The Moth Storyslam: Neighborhood
8 p.m. at Martyrs'; $7
The New York-based storytelling behemoth returns for an evening of true (mostly) tales about life in your 'hood. Yes, there's some irony in the idea of an out-of-town arts corporation coming into North Center for a celebration of everything local, but the storytellers will be 100-percent Chicago. If you want to represent (Kenwood! Pilsen! Rogers Park!), show up at Martyrs' (early!) and put your name in the hat. For a description of what it's like, check out Centerstage's recap of the first Chicago event.

I WISH: Mixology
7 p.m. at Spring; $35
North Shore Distillery co-owner and blogger Sonja Kassenbaum hosts this class covering the basics of making great drinks at home. You'll explore supplies, techniques, ingredients and flavor profiles on your way to making and tasting several cocktails, including a gimlet, mojito, passionfruit bellini, Tea Rose, Blackberry Julep and Corpse Reviver No. 2.

Alex Kotlowitz
5:30 p.m. at Northwestern University (University Hall Room 201, 1897 Sheridan, Evanston); free
The acclaimed journalist and author (There Are No Children Here, Never A City So Real, The Other Side of the River) reads from his work at Northwestern, where he's a professor at the Medill School of Journalism and also the school's Writer-In-Residence for the winter quarter.
