EAT

Vegan Pizza and Beer Dinner

Dimo's Pizza 1615 N. Damen Ave. 773-525-4580

The classic pairing—pizza and beer—gets an update with vegan slices served with Ale Asylum brews. One of the four courses includes a glass of Hopalicious paired with pizza featuring roasted root vegetables, Thai basil and spicy curry sauce. 7-9 p.m. $40-$45.

Earth Day Promotion

Modern Asian Kitchen 1942 W. Division St. 773-772-6251

Satisfy both your appetite and your desire to improve the planet: Order the organic and locally sourced signature Chicken Wangs—yes, "Wangs"—or falafel with wing sauce ($5-$9) and the restaurant donates partial proceeds to the Rebuilding Exchange, a market for reclaimed building materials diverted from landfills. 11 a.m.-10 p.m.

DRINK

Danny Masterson DJ Set

Ay Chiwowa 311 W. Chicago Ave. 312-643-3200

Shake it with the actor best known for "That '70s Show" and "Men at Work," who spins '80s and '90s hits as DJ Mom Jeans. Refresh yourself with $5 Ay Margaritas, Coronas and Maestro Dobel tequila shots and—if you're hungry—tortas. 10 p.m.-midnight. No cover.

Earth Day Wine Flights

D.O.C. Wine Bar 2602 N. Clark St. 773-883-5101

Celebrate both Earth Day and the time of year when golden mustard blooms in the Napa vineyards with hosted Pinnacle Wines tastings (6-7:30 p.m.) and two $12 certified organic wine flights: Green with Envy (three whites) and Sustainable (three reds). 5 p.m.-2 a.m. No cover.

DO

Pompeya

Empty Bottle 1035 N. Western Ave. 773-276-3600

The indie pop band from Moscow fuses '70s disco-funk, '80s New Wave and '90s indie rock to create an upbeat modern sound. Brooklyn groups Leverage Models (a danceable, futuristic soul band featuring Shannon Fields of Stars Like Fleas) and Curtin (a mellow rock duo) open the show. 8:30 p.m. $8-$10. Tickets: emptybottle.com
