You will find several places to eat along Division street west of Ashland. Smoke Daddy is about 1800 West Division. On the cheap side, if you want a hot dog joint that has what I regard as the best Italian sausage in Chicago, drive north on Ashland a short distance for Choppers. Get the sausage with hot giardiniera. Shakes are good, too.

Interesting adaptation of a classic. It can be scary for small children (age 8 and up- cursed once). The venue needs to turn on the HEAT!!!!

Description

The House presents The Nutcracker, a bold re-imagining of the classic E.T.A. Hoffman tale. 

The first time the House created Christmas magic was back in 2007 at the Steppenwolf Theatre with the original run of The Nutcracker. It received amazing reviews like the ones below and it also received Goldstar’s Nutty Award. It was the most beloved production of The Nutcracker in the country for that year. And now it’s back!
