Monday Madness

For many Monday is the start of the work week and might be a day we all dread, but what you might NOT know is that Monday is also one of the strongest nights of the week for both showcases and Open Mics. So instead posting a "What's Popping" segment today that focuses on an entire week of Chicago stand up comedy (and can get a bit overwhelming), just wanted to plug all of the great shows and mics happening tonight (and every Monday).
