TOP 10: Tonight we find out who will be Miss Wicker Park as 10 finalists compete at the Double Door in the four following categories: Introduction, Talent, Evening Gown, and Question & Answer. Rapper Rhymefest is among the judges along with audience members online voting via a live stream. Needless to say, this isn't your typical beauty pageant. In other words, there's no swimsuit round! 7 p.m., 1572 N. Milwaukee Ave, $10

EAT THIS: The annual Halsted Tastes Better event goes down tonight on Aldine Street on the east side of Halsted Street. Enjoy food from more than a dozen area restaurants and be sure cheer on your favorite server in The Waitperson's Race. 6-9 p.m., $20 in advance or $30 at the door.

GROOVE IN THE PARK Tonight's "Downtown Sound: New Music Mondays" at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion features Daniel Snaith, aka Caribou, and his psychedelic, electronic sound.

The Budos Band also performs, showcasing their funky, afro-beat sound. 6:30-9 p.m., 201 E. Randolph St., FREE
