Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

The Windy City Wine Festival in Grant Park features vineyards from around the world—and moms from around the region sipping on perfectly chilled Chardonnay. Go have a glass and feel sophisticated, have seven and toy with the idea of jumping in the Buckingham Fountain.

"Eclectic and impatient drummer Dave King, best known as the high-powered engine of the Bad Plus, has a reputation for irascibility, aggression, and irreverence, but those qualities also impart depth to his music," writes Peter Margasak in Soundboard. Catch the Dave King Trio tonight at Green Mill.

Not in the mood for jazz? Margasak also recommends checking out the Hideout Block Party & A.V. Fest, particularly to see Superchunk, who "sound as alive, engaged, and relevant as they have at any point in their career" on I Hate Music, the band's new album.

For more on these events and others, check out the Reader's daily Agenda page.

Correction: An earlier version of this post stated that artist/printmaker Ryan Duggan's opening reception at Johalla Projects is tonight. It was last night.
