Road to Wrigley
7 p.m. at Wrigley Field; $5-$30
This is your chance to see a ballgame at beautiful Wrigley Field without paying Cubs prices. The Cubs’ Single-A affiliate, the Peoria Chiefs square off against the Kane County Cougars in an exhibition game that is a throwback to yesteryear, when beer didn’t cost 8 bucks. Sit in the bleachers for a mere five-spot, and grab a beer for $3.50. Plus there will be plenty of fan-friendly events, like dizzy bat races and running the bases for the kids.

The Unthanks, Noah Harris

8 p.m. at SPACE; $8-$10
The British folk group formerly known as Rachel Unthank & the Winterset makes the trip to Evanston, joined by low-key pianist/songwriter Noah Harris.

Closing night at the Aberdeen
5 p.m.-2 a.m.; cheap drinks and food all night
Send off a Wicker Park favorite as Aberdeen closes its doors and awaits its new incarnation (which should be open later this summer). Food is 25 percent off, and the new owners will offer up some of their new menu items for free.
