Historic Pub Crawls offer lessons with libations

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In the grand Chicago tradition of combining drinking with other disciplines (see Drinking & Writing Festival, Bye Bye Liver) comes a new event for the summer: the Historic Pub Crawl. Sean Parnell, of the Chicago Bar Project and the author of Historic Bars of Chicago, will lead these tours of old local taverns, which run from 6-10 p.m. on June 24, July 15 and August 19. Tickets ($40) can be purchased at www.historicbarsofchicago.com.

The more observant (or drunk) among you might note that this is not a totally original idea, as the Chicago History Museum has been running similar tours for some time. Upcoming events include a tour of Chicagoland breweries (June 15 and 17, 6:45 p.m.; $45), an exploration of River North taverns (July 22, 6:45 p.m.; $25) and "Bars on the Banks," a trolley tour along the Chicago River and Lake Michigan (August 19, 6:45 p.m.; $30).
