125 years ago this May, the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition opened in Chicago.  To honor this significant anniversary, we’re off to see Oz Park! And drink a little.

As we spend the afternoon strolling from statue to statue, we’ll discuss how L. Frank Baum’s classic tale was inspired by both Chicago and the World’s Fair.  You’ll also get insight on how the story tells us about the author’s life and the people in his world.  Judy Johanson, President of the Oz Park Advisory Council, joins us to tell us how this unique city park, created by community, came to be.

This magical march begins and ends at a pair of historic taverns because this is History On Tap, after all, and there’s no place like a bar, er, home.

$20 ticket fee includes a lovely afternoon with a couple of knowledgeable ladies and a whole lot of history. Drinks on you.  Purchase tickets via Venmo (no transaction fee) or via Nightout (for a fee).  We can also meet in in person and grab a beer because that’s the right way to do it.

In collaboration with the Oz Park Advisory Council.
