LINCOLN PARK — Comedy, music and an early start to Thanksgiving are all ways to spend time in the neighborhood Monday.
Music at The Tonic Room
Monday night features two events at this intimate space at 2447 N. Halsted St. At 8 p.m., Kalamazoo, Mich.-based Graham Parsons & The Go Rounds are set to play songs from their new full-length album from earlier this year called "Feathername." Also on that bill is the "old-time" band from Chicago called The Lantern Kickers. Tickets are $7. At 10 p.m., the bar will feature Monday's Round Table Jam, a free event featuring funky sounds played their every week.
Seven Days of Thanksgiving Dinner (and Breakfast and Lunch)
You've heard of restaurants selling breakfast all day. Now there's a restaurant that will serve Thanksgiving dinner 24/7, at least for the next seven days. Beginning Monday and going through Sunday, The Edge Bar and Grill, a 24-hour diner at 2720 N. Clark St., will have a special Thanksgiving menu available. Yes, you can even come here on Thanksgiving.
