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

Devouring barbecue is the best way to prep for hibernating all winter, we hear. For $40, you can dine at a dozen grilling stations at Taste Talk's All-Star Cookout in Palmer Square. And while you're snacking, hobnob with local foodie faves such as Rick Bayless, Stephanie Izard, Jason Hammel, and Paul Kahan.

Celebrate and support independent record stores at the fourth annual CHIRP Record Crawl today. The trek commences at Groove Distribution, and moves to Permanent Records, Dusty Groove, Reckless Records, and Laurie's Planet of Sound. There will be special discounts on vinyl, as well as food trucks and free coffee along the way to keep your energy up.

Classic punk rockers Slaughter & the Dogs rode the English rock wave in the 70s, opening for a pair of historic Sex Pistols shows in 1976. They released Do It Dog Style, their first record, in 1978, and broke up the next year. They've gotten back together a handful of times since then, something Luca Cimarusti laments. "And by the time 1991's Shocking was out, saying that the Dogs were past their prime would be a polite understatement. . . . If we're lucky, they'll stick to the tried-and-true classics on this trip to the States." Here's hoping they've still got it at Reggie's Rock Club tonight.
