We saw two groups perform: Ruptured Childhood and The Pitch. Ruptured Childhood performed long-form improv--the audience throws out a suggestion and they create scenes for their allotted time.
The Upstairs Gallery has weekly recurring shows and groups rotate in and out. Check out their Tumblr for more information and schedule bidness: http://upstairsgallery.tumblr.com/
After the show, we went to Simon's Tavern across the street at 5210 N. Clark Street. Simon's has been around since 1934 (ahh! that's old!) and is well known for its glogg. Yummmm. I worked next door to Simon's for two years and never went in. I have no explanation for this statement.
And then I'm including this photograph because this is what we did after Simon's. That's right, my lovelies, moon shoes.
