DIA DE LOS MUERTOS: Halloween may be over, which means it's officially time to celebrate Mexico’s Day of the Dead. Traditionally, it marks a time when the souls of the deceased return to their families to eat, drink and be merry, as if they were still living. River North's Zocalo Restaurant and Tequila Bar offers a special menu Monday night. On Tuesday, the celebration continues with an Ilegal Mezcal Tasting. 358 W. Ontario, www.zocalochicago.com
SWEET TREATS: As we head full steam into the holiday season, there'll be a bigger emphasis on gooey goodness. Tonight, learn how to make toffee from Margy Kaye, the "Confection Diva" who created Sweet Margy candy products. It's all part of the Eno-Versity classes at ENO, located inside the Intercontinental Hotel. 7 p.m., 505 North Michigan Ave, $25, RSVP recommended.
