    A 45-year-old Newport woman seems to have loved the ’80s and it’s a hard habit state police tried to break when she climbed onstage during a Chicago concert at MGM Grand Theater.

    THE BAND FROM THE WINDY CITY: Cranking out hits since 1967, Chicago is a band that keeps on ticking through the years and refuses to break-up (a rarity in the music realm). Tonight, they partner up with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra to play some of their long list of Top 10 hits for loyal fans. Hear favorites like, “If You Leave Me Now,” “Make Me Smile,” “If You Still Love Me?” and who knows – the band may even play some holiday tunes. They take the Meyerson Symphony Center stage at 8 p.m. Tickets are $45 to $175.

    CREEPY CRAWLY CREATURES: If you haven’t had the chance to check out what all the bug buzz is about at the Museum of Nature and Science, then today’s the day. Their “Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure” exhibit and IMAX film features over 40 insects up close and personal. Take a trip to the tropics and watch a praying mantis gobble up dinner, or two beetles battle for survival. The afternoon of educational, family fun begins with the first IMAX showing at 11 a.m. and the last at 4:30 p.m. Tickets are between $7 and $10. Click here for a complete list of showtimes.

    SMOOTH JAZZ NIGHT: Join saxophonist Dave Monsch at Park Restaurant, Bar and Garden off Henderson in Dallas as he hosts an evening of smooth jazz sounds. Every Wednesday the Park/Bar Celine features some of the area’s most acclaimed jazz musicians. If you’re looking to dine-in, while listening to saxophone high notes, be advised that the restaurant doors open tonight at 5:30 p.m. and close at 10 p.m. The music begins at 9 p.m.
