What he lacks in expressiveness, this Stetson-wearing fan makes up for in dedication. Not many people would brave that many inches of snow while watching the bobsleigh event at the Torino 2006 Winter Olympics.

GOODBYE, SUN: Chicago saw it’s first real snowfall of the season Monday, and that’s just the beginning of the end. Prepare for the worst by knitting your own scarf, hat and gloves with the helpful crafters in Stitch ’n’ Bitch, a knitting group that meets up at Kopi. 5317 N. Clark St.; Andersonville. 7 p.m.

ROAD WARRIOR: One of the most important accessories for bicyclers (aside from a helmet) is a bag, as anyone who has ever lost their wallet on the ride home from the bar can attest to. The trendy bike-bag company Po Campo throws a trunk show at Hanger 18, where it’ll dish out biking tips and some demos. Plus, Hanger 18 will take 10 percent off all regularly priced items. 4726 N. Lincoln Ave.; Lincoln Square. 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

TAKE A CHANCE: It’s the second Tuesday of the month, which means hipster-dance-party Off Chances goes down at Danny’s tonight. One of the best things about this LGBTQ-center get-together? It’s not in Boystown! 1959 W. Dickens Ave.; Wicker Park. 9 p.m. 21 and older.
