3 Things To Do Today

EPMD

9 p.m. at The Shrine; $7-$14

If there were ever to be an unofficial CEO (or CEOs) of hip-hop, it would have to be EPMD. Sure the duo’s album names (Strictly Business, Unfinished Business, Business as Usual, etc.) factor into the decision, but their resume is the bottom line; it spans 24 years, 7 albums and numerous classics. There’s no questioning Erik Sermon and Parrish Smith’s impact on the culture, so whenever they make it to town it should be a top priority to pay homage.

Haroun and the Sea of Stories

10 a.m. at Merle Reskin Theatre; $8

Few novelists are more theatrical than Salman Rushdie, and this tale, adapted from his award-winning children’s story, brings his words to life on stage. Kids will love following Haroun to the mythical moon of Kahani, where he meets shadow warriors, mechanical flying bulls, talking fish, and water genies in his quest to recover his father’s magical storytelling powers. Recommended for ages 7 and up.

Chefs’ Fest

5-8 p.m. at Arlington Park Racecourse; $35

This 17th-annual foodie festival includes features 50 restaurant vendors, including L’Eiffel Bistrot & Creperie, Sweet Baby Ray’s, Wildfire, Weber Grill and more, plus a performance from a barbershop quartet. Food, music and wine — what more do you need on a Tuesday night?
