We ate beforehand at Thai Aroma a couple blocks away (don't recommend), but the food and drinks are competitively priced inside the venue. Just make sure you get there a little bit early and ask for a table in front of you.

We were really disappointed. We typically love Second City. This was our first time seeing them in Chicago. We should have picked a different show.

It was just okay. The crowd was small, because the Blackhawks were playing game 7 of a series, so that was probably a factor. It had bright moments, but lacked the energy of most other comedy shows I've seen there.
