On the third Thursday of every month, Adler Planetarium has an After Dark event. Tickets are $12 in advance, $17 at the door (less for members) and include access to all exhibits and shows (including the Historic Atwood Sphere which is normally a $6 ticket and is so totally cool you guys). If you can get there before 7:45 you can also check out the Doane observatory for free, OR you can reserve a ticket for it ahead of time.

I was lucky enough to check out the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy themed event, but upcoming ones center around the Moon, Future Tech, and Alien Invasions. Remember that it's 21+, there's an open bar, and you can take the 146 bus or park in a nearby lot for $13.
