Tonight: Unlimited Brew and BBQ

OMG! Start getting over hump day by stopping through the Ommegang Beer Tasting at Jake Melnick's Corner Tap. The variety of Belgian-style beer is enough justification to checking out, but add an unlimited supply of Chef Bob’s May BBQ Combo Menu items for only $25, and you've got yourself a party. 6-9 p.m., 41 E. Superior St., $25

POKER BEARS: Put on your best poker face and join former Chicago Bear Jerry Azumah at his annual Texas Hold'Em fundraising event for his non-profit organization (ASAP). Current Bears like Lance Briggs and Israel Idonije will also be in the house, and if you don't want to play, there's usually a pretty good party going on away from the tables. 5:30-11 p.m., Sax Hotel, 329 N. Dearborn, $350 to play and $75 to watch

POETRY AND PIZZA: Got something to say? Then speak your mind and revolve through the doors of poetry, music and pizza at Red Kiva. Two featured performers take the stage tonight including a guy who describes himself as "Bob Dylan meets George Carlin." 7-10 p.m., 1108 W. Randolph St., FREE
