Raise a glass to adaptive reuse!
We are kicking off our 2017 Historic Tavern Tours with a fun tour of four North Side taverns featuring India Oak Bar and Grill, O’Reilly’s Pub, Blue Danube, and the new Rooks Tavern.
Thursday, April 6 6:30-9:30pm
Members $30/Non-Members $35
These four taverns share a common heritage … one of hard to imagine adaptive reuse and history galore. Their former lives include an auto show room, a Piggly Wiggly, a car wash, a hardware store, a gas station, a hangout for poets and musicians, and a horse stable … near the site of a nasty train wreck, no less. We have lots of stories to share about all of these incarnations and the significance of place in the history and development of the neighborhood. Join us and learn why these are no mere watering holes!
