Pretend This is Going to Be the Cubbie’s Year

Plus, belly dancing class and drag queen talent


GO CUBS! Start celebrating the Cubs home opener at 5:30 a.m. That's not a misprint. That's when Yak-Zies on Clark opens its doors and starts broadcasting live on WXRT. Enjoy live music from John Hiatt, Waco Brothers and Backyard Tire Fire starting at 8 a.m. Sorry, the first beer doesn't get served until 7 a.m. 3720 N Clark

SHAKE THOSE HIPS: Shimmy over to the Garfield Park Conservatory and learn the ancient art of belly dancing every Monday. We're told this is all about the ladies tapping into their divine feminine essense, plus the fact that it's a heck of a workout doesn't hurt either. 300 N Central Park Ave., 6 - 7 p.m., $10

SHAKE THOSE HIPS: Miss Foozie hosts "Wiggin' Out," a drag queen talent contest at Rehab that awards $125 to the top performer. If you're not up to performing -- or not a drag queen -- it's OK to watch, judge, cheer and enjoy the $10 pineapple passion pitchers. 9:30 p.m., 3641 N Halsted
