Whether rain or shine, you can get out of the house and enjoy local activities this weekend.


Grab your bae and head to Wooden Box Theatre’s Couple’s Nite at the Grassroots Cafe, 2180 Oakland Drive, Unit B, in Sycamore. For $5, couples can enjoy musical selections from artists Melissa Olson, David Rae and Katelyn Elizabeth, to name a few. The night will also include a theatrical storyline. The magic begins 6 p.m. Semi-formal attire is desired.

Punk, indie and rock combine for a five-set show featuring local bands such as All The Wine, This Inspired and Tortilla Flat. The show costs $6 and starts at 8 p.m. at the House Cafe, 263 E. Lincoln Highway. Doors open at 7 p.m.


Burgers, brews and comedy? Count us in. Check out comedians Uncle Larry Reeb and Jim Flannigan 7 p.m. at O’Leary’s Restaurant and Pub, 260 E. Lincoln Highway. Tickets, which cost $20, include admittance to the performance, a burger and your choice of drink from a list of options. Tickets are available at DekalbCountyTickets.org.

Get ready to be dazzled as LGBT student group Prism holds its annual Gay Jam — a night full of dance performances, acting, music, poetry and more. Come witness the fabulosity at 8 p.m. in the Holmes Student Center, Carl Sandburg Auditorium, for free.

Students, adults and children are invited to the block party at the start of the Huskie Bowl before the football team takes to the field for the scrimmage.
