As always, SC seating is very intimate (read tight!) so you will get to know your neighbors.
The Second City's Game Night

While you could not tell that the, "seasoned fries" were seasoned with anything other than a little salt, the sweet potato fries were the best I'd ever had - crispy and lightly seasoned. The guacamole was fresh and delicious. The commemorative cup with unlimited refills of soft drinks were a great value.

Skits can get quite "blue" so really wouldn't bring anyone under 20. Keep your kids at home.

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.

Elly's Pancake House is 24-hrs and two blocks away from UP Comedy Club. Delicious food! (get the chicken and waffles)

You will have a hard time finding parking in the area unless you want to pay $16 for parking for the time you will be there. I always take an uber or a lyft there as I like to enjoy my night and have a few drinks. DONT DRINK AND DRIVE!!

The weather was Cool. I wore A dress shirt, chinos and oxfords. You want to dress nice for the event as a lot of people go there on dates and also you don't want to look like a bum. .

It gets dark in there so its best for you to eat elsewhere before you go to see the comedy show. Plus you will be laughing from the time they start and you don't want to choke while eating. There are many pubs and restaurants in the area. All of them are very nice :)

We ate at Kamehachi before the show, just down Wells. The area is fun to walk before or after the show.

Plenty of great dinner choices in the area- our favorite is Topo Gigio down the street
