3 Things To Do Today

Soup and Bread (and beer)

Well, this seals it: Wednesday is officially soup day in Chicago. As if the free weekly Soup and Bread event at the Hideout weren’t enough (the folks from Lula Cafe will be among the guest chefs from 5:30-8 p.m. tonight), Sheffield’s is introducing its own slurp-worthy promotion. Starting at 7 p.m. tonight, $15 gets you one of four soups with beer pairings. Not only that, but the bar also hosts the “opening hair-emonies” of 826 Chicago‘s Moustache-a-thon tonight at 7 p.m. Update: The bar will also host weekly check-ins for the Moustache-a-thon, but tonight’s ceremony takes place at 826CHI headquarters, 1331 N. Milwaukee.

Good Goddess Gift Showcase

9 p.m. at darkroom, free

If you’ve ever wondered where the female representatives of hip-hop are, mark your calendars for the this showcase at darkroom. Sponsored by E Events, this free show will be bringing together some of the most talented female artists around, all of whom are doing their part to redefine the preconceived notions of what an MC can be. Move aside fellas, ’cause it looks like 2010 could be a breakout year for the ladies.

“Hughie” & “Krapp’s Last Tape”

7:30 p.m. at Goodman Theatre; $25-$83

What this town needs is a headliner. Brian Dennehy stars in a double bill of classic one-acts designed to show off his Brian Dennehy-ness: “Hughie,” an O’Neill about the tragedy of a charming old gambler, and “Krapp,” about the memories of a sad old man. The show, directed by superstar Brian Falls, is parking at the Goodman before motoring off to Broadway.
