Dear History On Tap,

The other day my buddies and me were talking about da Cubs and where we want to drink during the games this season. Hey, how ’bout those 2016 Cubs! Anyway, now we have a bet that’s keeping us up at night (and all that Old Style and Malort got nuthin’ to do with it either).  What really are the oldest bars in Chicago? Please help.

Dear Big Chicago Dog,

This is a question we get asked all the time by you curious Chicago boozers.  To try to finally kill this keg of a question, it’s time we do something about it.  Please join us at the GMan Tavern for a free conversation with historians Max Grinnell and Bill Savage.  The discussion will be moderated by the Twitter wonder known as Chicago Bars (if you’re into that stuff).  Hope to see you there – just be sure to register.

Sending you a virtual Chicago Handshake,
History On Tap

P.S. Go Cubs!
