World Naked Bike Ride
Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

Tomorrow is Father's Day, so why not see a retrospective of work by the father of modern children's stories at Water Tower Place? "The Art of Dr. Seuss" includes original sketches from his famous books, but also features his rarely seen political cartoons, taxidermy work, and personal illustrations, all of which prove the doctor was a subversive surrealist at heart.

There's no better way to bring attention to the positives of cycling than a crowd of bikers letting it all hang out. For the 11th year the World Naked Bike Ride invites cyclists to go as "bare as they dare" to promote nonreliance on oil and positive body image. Starting location and time will be announced closer to the event to avoid creepers; keep an eye on chicagonakedride.org for details.

Former Chicagoan and comedian Nick Vatterott returns to town this week with a show at the Beat Kitchen. Don't expect a typical stand-up routine. The Reader's Kevin Warwick says Vatterott's sets celebrate the "what-the-hell-?! glitches in his brain," with a focus on performance over punch line.
