It's a Draw-in at the MCA

 Artists and artist wannabes are invited to a free and quirky FIRST TUESDAY Drawing Extravaganza, DOODEGANZA, at the Museum of Contemporary Art.  Bring your sketch pad and be inspired by Chicago artists Scott and Tyson Reeder as they lead an informal art class.  The "class" is not exactly an art class, not quite a party; more of a gathering for those who want to have a hands-on encounter with art. The event starts at 6p.m. but participants are welcome to come early and enjoy the galleries then stick around for art lessons, entertainment and grab a snack or a glass of wine or cup of Joe from Puck’s Café.  If you get a chance, check out the Alexander Calder in Focus exhibit that will be closing  March 21.  6p.m. Free admission and class. 220 E. Chicago Ave.  (312) 280 2660.

If you are still hungry two nearby choices are:

RL. You can’t go wrong with RL, the popular Ralph Lauren restaurant that delivers the ambiance of a private club, with a menu featuring American classics including all the usual suspects—seafood, steaks, chops, salads and sandwiches. Pricy but not ridiculously so. 115 E. Chicago Ave. (312)475-1100.

NoMI.   NoMI, a high-end offering, which regularly appears on the top 10 lists of Chicago restaurants, creates a French dining experience for those with discriminating tastes and a wallet to match.  Seventh Floor of Park Hyatt Chicago. 800 N. Michigan Ave. (312) 239-4030.
