David Sedaris fans can catch the 10th annual performance of his hilarious account of working as a Macy’s Christmas elf through this weekend at Theater Wit, at 1229 W. Belmont. The $35 tickets are still available for the Friday through Sunday shows (the last of the run). If they sell out, the theater starts a waiting list 90 minutes before the start of each show at the door.
It’s hard enough for us to stay warm this time of year. Ever wonder how animals survive frigid climes? The Lincoln Park Zoo will explain how polar bears, seals and cold-blooded reptiles thrive in wintery weather. The program runs Sunday from 3:30-5 p.m. and costs $10 per person, $8 for members. Last week’s Polar Party sold out, so register soon here.
Not ready for the holidays to be done yet definitely over the cold weather? Then head to the Garfield Park Conservatory’s annual Holiday Flower Display. It’s free and runs through Jan. 5. And if you’re really, really behind on those holiday cards, you can stop by the special spot set up to take your holiday pictures.
