Since you haven't started on that new year's resolution to plan ahead yet, here are some last minute ideas for this weekend that you MIGHT be able to do, if they don't sell out before you get to it:
Our sister station, WGCI is hosting their annual Big Jam at United Center tonight (Saturday)... it starts at 6:30pm. It's a star-studded lineup with Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Yo Gotti and many more. (Maaaaannnn.... I remember the first Big Jam!) Get info and tickets here.
Actor/comedian and Chicago native DeRay Davis is hosting his annual Chi-Town Comedy Countdown at Arie Crown tonight (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday). He'll take the stage with Tiffany Haddish, Michael Blackson, Lil Duval and Lil Rel Howery... I only saw a few seats available on Ticketmaster for either night so get them now to laugh your way into 2018!
And if you're into jazz, there are still a few seats available to see Paul Brown tonight (Saturday) and Paul Taylor (Sunday) at the Montrose Room in Loew's O'Hare Hotel. Info and tickets here.
Here's to you bringing in the best year yet exactly the way you want to... Happy New Year!
