EAT

Doors now open

Bar Umbriago, 6 W. Hubbard St. 312-494-1200

Try a summer salad with lamb bacon and pecorino sardo ($7) or a steak with bone marrow raviolini and tomato fonduta ($17) at this new Italian wine bar-style restaurant from chef Michael Ponzio. Don't miss the reclaimed wood ceiling and 100-year-old tiles from Italian churches in the bar area. 3 p.m.-midnight.

DRINK

Shine on

Moonshine, 1824 W. Division St. 773-862-8686

Drain a glass without draining your wallet as this Wicker Park spot offers $3 Budweiser bottles and Bud Light drafts, $10 Bud Light pitchers and $4 Jack Daniel's cocktails and—to keep your energy up for all that glass-lifting—a $5 burger basket. 3 p.m.-2 a.m.

DO

All of the lights (free!)

Garfield Park Conservatory, 300 N. Central Park Ave.

Mother Nature meets public art in this exhibition by Chicago artist Annette Elliot in which light projected onto the structure's dome reflects the shapes of 65,000 panes of glass damaged in a 2011 hailstorm. Sunset to sunrise. Through Saturday.

Marley, mon

Cubby Bear, 1059 W. Addison St. 773-327-1662

Nothing says summer like reggae and nothing says reggae like Grammy Award winner Ziggy Marley, who makes a stop in Chicago on his Forward to Love tour. 9 p.m. $31 (21+).

Stand-up that goes down

Town Hall Pub, 3340 N. Halsted St.

Get into the Fourth of July spirit—and, ahem, perhaps pick up some tips—at The Sarcastic Squad's "I'm Proud To BJ An American: A Tribute to Oral Sex & The American Way," where Chicago funnyman and self-proclaimed "oral sexpert" Adam Guerino hosts themed stand-up, songs and, of course, oral histories by local comedians. 8 p.m. $5.
