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

Head to N. North Branch and Halstead to catch the second day of the Chicago Food Social. Food trucks, vendors, and chef demonstrations gather at the Kendall College parking lot, accompanied by live music from local bands like Brontosaurus, Al Scorch, and Wizard Castle.

Logan Square's The Boulevard Music Festival coincides with its morning farmers market today. Craft beers and local vendors line both sides of Logan Boulevard, while bands like Johnny Blas, the Heard, and Orgone light up the festival's two stages. A portion of the proceeds benefit St. Luke's Lutheran Church of Logan Square.

Classical music aficionados and video gamers alike can find enjoyment in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's concert, "Distant Worlds: Music From Final Fantasy." Besides revisiting classics from Final Fantasy VI, tonight is also the world premiere performance of "Final Fantasy X: Hymn of the Fayth."
