We love our flag, Chicago.  This beloved city symbol is a powerful display of civic pride and it connects us all.  As part of a five piece written and illustrated series created in collaboration with Phil Thompson of Capehorn Illustration and Choose Chicago, we’ll be hosting events at local drinking establishments – with an array of amazing partners – so that we can gather, grab a pint and dig deeper into each story. A City That Works and a City That Works TOGETHER!

We are gathering in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St. to discuss the history and drinking connections to Stars 3 and 4 on the Chicago flag.  The 1893 Columbian Exposition and the 1933 World’s Fair will be highlighted in a conversation with author and Northwestern University professor, Bill Savage; historian, Paul Durica; Ray Daniels, Founder and Director of Cicerone Certification Program; Doug Hurst, Founder of Metropolitan Brewing; and Michael Roper, owner of Hopleaf.

Metropolitan Beer will be flowing!
