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.

Have a family polar party

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.
