Description

REGISTRATION AVAILABLE BEGINNING 10/4/19

Halloween might just be our favorite holiday. This year, we're celebrating the Spooky Season with a redux of our Edgewater walking tours, featuring special guest collaborator Sam Prestigiacomo! Sam is a lifelong Chicagoan, artist, and puppeteer whose work often involves the surreal and mysterious. Her love of local history and strange, spectral happenings ensure a special dose of eerie folklore on this 2-hour neighborhood walk!

Beginning at the Berwyn Red Line stop, the tour will cover Edgewater's rich history, architecture, and landmarks-- from its early days as a "summer home for Chicago's elite," to its brief role as a hotspot for automobile showrooms, to its contemporary importance to the queer community. The afternoon will end with a meal at Moody's Pub, renowned for its burgers, beergarden, Medieval aesthetic. Come learn something new about your place in space!

Chicago for Chicagoans is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit offering tours on a "pay-what-you-can" basis. A suggested tip of $10-20 per person is suggested & appreciated, but not required. Reviewing us on Yelp, liking us on Facebook, spreading the word, and attending future tours tells us how much you love us too! Donate online fee-free here.
