CHICAGO — An eclectic mix of things to do Tuesday includes a tree-lighting ceremony, a comedy show at Zanies, a screening of a Sundance film and a costume karaoke night.
Annual Old Town Tree Lighting at Burton Place Park, 1500 N. Wells St, about 5 p.m.
The annual tree lighting will take place shortly after sunset between about 5 and 5:30 p.m. Local shops will be on hand to serve hot chocolate, candies and other treats, according to the Old Town Merchants & Residents Association.
Queer Comedy at Zanies, 1548 N. Wells St., 8:30 p.m.
The venue kicks off the second season of its Queer Comedy series with headliner Cameron Esposito, a former Chicagoan who since moved to Los Angeles and has appeared on shows such as "The Late Late Show" with Craig Ferguson and "Chelsea Lately." The show is hosted by Adam Guerino, creator of OutLoud Chicago. Tickets are $15, plus two minimum orders of food or drinks.
"Newlyweeds" at Facets Cinematheque, 1517 W. Fullerton Ave., 9 p.m.
"Newlyweeds," which premiered at Sundance earlier this year, is something of a stoner comedy centered on a couple living in New York who share a love for weed. Tickets for the film, which has its last Facets screening on Tuesday, are $9.
Costume Karaoke at Drop, 1909 N. Lincoln Ave., 10 p.m.
Each Tuesday, the lounge hosts a karaoke night that welcomes (hopeful) singers to dress up and belt out tunes.
