MIXING IT UP: Sometimes it's amazing how some people became bartenders when they can't serve up a decent cocktail. Nacional 27's Adam Seger offers a solution: mix those fancy drinks yourself. Seger demonstrates how to properly mix two exotic drinks--"hot buttered hum" and "hot agava moch." 325 W. Huron St.; River North. 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. $27. 21 and older.
TROTTING AROUND: Indie-rock quartet Voxtrot plays at Lincoln Hall for the Tomorrow Never Knows festival. Solid Gold, Maps & Atlases, and Gemini Club also play. 2424 N. Lincoln Ave.; Lincoln Park. 9 p.m. $15. 18 and older.
ADD SOME SPECIAL SAUCE: If you're stressed out about Illinois' growing financial debt, student loans, Haiti, or your significant other's desire to see Valentine's Day, then chill out at the House Of Blues. Psychedelic hip-hop group G. Love And Special Sauce stop by to offer a present diversion to the soul-crushing reality of life. 329 N. Dearborn St.; River North. 8 p.m. $25.50 to $48.
