The City that Drinks Sold Out
Tuesdays, 6 - 7:30 pm
June 25 - July 30

Bars have long been central to Chicago culture. From the city's first election-held in the Sauganash Tavern-through the opulent saloons of the Gilded Age and Prohibition-era speakeasies, to generations of ethnically-identified bars, such venues have provided the "third place" where people create community and negotiate identity. We will discuss how writers and film-makers have represented Chicago not just as "the city that works," but also as "the city that drinks." A tour of historic bars which illustrate the course's themes, via the CTA and on foot, will be arranged. Six sessions, $170.

Bill Savage, who holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern University, has taught Newberry seminars since 1992. He has also worked in various bars since 1980.
