You know what helps during an election?  The opportunity to laugh about the election!  And for that matter, all of life!  Take advantage of one of the best things Chicago has to offer . . . Second City!  With alumni including Steve Carell, Tina Fey, the Belushi brothers and Gilda Radner, you're sure to get your laugh on!  They have reasonably priced shows throughout the week.  You can find a schedule and buy tickets at http://www.secondcity.com/performances/chicago/calendarandtickets/.  (Here's a tip . . . stay for the improv after the show!)  Before the show, grab dinner at Adobo Grill.  The table side guacamole may or may not be life changing.  http://adobogrill.com/  (We suggest you make a reservation as a lot of the theater-goers have the same idea!)
