CHICAGO — Mayor Rahm Emanuel is to appear on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, making good on his promise after the host came to Chicago in March and jumped into icy Lake Michigan.

The mayor’s office and NBC officials said today that Emanuel will appear on the show June 3.

The pair made a deal earlier this year. If Fallon did the “Polar Plunge” on March 2 then Emanuel would appear on Fallon’s show in New York.

Emanuel took the quick, but frigid dip first wearing a T-shirt and shorts. Fallon went next dressed in a full suit and tie. It was 10 degrees outside and the water temperature was 32.

The annual event drew several thousand plungers, raising more than $1 million for Special Olympics Chicago.
