DJ DENNIS: In this case the late bird gets "The Worm" as Dennis Rodman hits The Mid to host the kickoff of the club's Thursday night DJ event. We're pretty sure Rodman won't actually be spinning, but DJs Sye Young, Torio and Gus Karas are more than capable of picking up the slack. 10pm–4am, 306 N Halsted, RSVP here. $10 after 11 p.m.
GRAND OPENING: Bridge House Tavern celebrates its grand opening with a party that includes complimentary beer and passed appetizers from 5-7 p.m. Enjoy live music on the riverside patio and a floating performance from local band South of 80, who will pull up and play on a boat. Bar specials after 7 p.m. 321 North Clark, NO COVER

Forty pieces of music memorabilia will be featured, including clothes, lyrics and historic instruments. 63 W Ontario, NO COVER
