9 p.m. at Martini Park
Can't afford that trip to Vegas this year? Let Martini Park bring Sin City to you. One of the Strip's favorite shows makes an appearance in Chicago tonight before heading down to The Venue at Horseshoe Casino this weekend. It's an extravaganza featuring variety acts, dancers, sideshow freaks, midgets (Mini Lady Gaga, anyone), acrobats, DJs and, of course, scantily clad babes.
