IN THE MIX: Attend the "Patron Social Club," a happy hour margarita mixer at C-View in the Affinia Chicago hotel. The Patron Signature Margarita Bar will be serving up refreshing concoctions for $10, while DJ sets create a sexy party vibe. 4-11PM, no cover.

REEL LIFE: Catch a screening of the new movie "Hannah Free" during the "First Tuesdays with the Midwest Independent Film Festival" series. The film was written by acclaimed Chicago playwright Claudia Allen and stars Sharon Gless (of "Cagney and Lacey" fame). A discussion with the filmmakers precedes the screening at the Landmark Century Centre Cinema. 6PM, $10-$15.
