The Frugal Grad is always looking for cheap or free nights out for graduate students, especially when they involve Paul Durica (PhD’13, English), Pocket Guide to Hell, and Chicago legend Studs Terkel.
On March 16, join us for a (mostly) free night at the Hideout for a reenactment of Studs’ Place—Terkel’s 1950’s TV show. Transportation will be provided from Hyde Park to the Hideout, "A regular bar for regular folks--where the hardworking man and the hardworking hustler meet for beer and eggs." (Opened 1934).
A discussion about taverns and community building in Chicago led by professors, bartenders, and local brewers will follow a live performance!
Check out the last reenactment of Studs' Place below!
Part of Let's Get Working, a year of Studs Terkel programming that will culminate in a three-day festival in May 2014 at the University of Chicago’s Logan Center for the Arts.
There is a $10 suggested donation and a cash bar (drinks are cheap!)
Meredith Milliron (Barrel of Monkeys) directs a cast that includes John Gieger, Roger Payton, Chris Rathjen, Nick Wagner, and Rachel Wilson.
Founded by Paul Durica (PhD'13, English), Pocket Guide to Hell is a series of interactive walks, talks, and reenactments dealing with Chicago’s past. Recent events include The Pit at the Chicago Board of Trade Building; Behind the Scenes with the Mediums at the Chicago Cultural Center; and The Compass Players Revisited at Jimmy’s Woodlawn Tap.
