SEX AND POLITICS: It's a story that could be, as they say, ripped from the headlines. "Sex Marks the Spot" is a comedy by famed playwright Charles Grippo that features a senator fighting for the survival of both his marriage and his career. Of course there's an alluring trollop involved. It all goes down at the Theatre Building Chicago. 7:30 p.m., 1225 W Belmont Tickets ($26)
GOODNESS SAKE: Cityscape Bar, located on the 15th floor of the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza, hosts their monthly "Vino with a View" wine tasting series tonight featuring a special sake tasting. Munch on small bites like Buffalo Chicken Straws, Peperonata Pizzas and Antipasto Trays and also receive a 20 percent discount off dinner in Italiasia Restaurant after the event. 6-8 p.m., 350 W. Mart Center Dr, FREE with RSVP
BEAR DOWN: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and likely many of his teammates will be on the Mystic Blue for a Vegas Night Charity Cruise to benefit Cutler's diabetes foundation. If you're not enough of a baller to handle the $200-$400 price tag, we suggest you hit the official Bull & Bear after-party. Email RSVP@OUTFITEVENTS.COM.
