Chicagoist Podcast 6/1 - Sean Parnell, "Historic Bars of Chicago"
By Karl Klockars in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 1, 2010 8:20PM
This week's entry to the Chicagoist Podcast Series finds us once again, and for the last time in a while, talking about the places that we go to intake alcoholic beverages. Specifically, the oldest ones in the city. Sean Parnell is the creator of the Chicago Bar Project, which you've no doubt stumbled upon if you've ever hunted for bar info, especially in those wild, anarchic days of pre-Yelp internet wilderness.
Parnell, who is also a former Chicagoist Interview subject, has a new book out from Lake Claremont Press about the most historic bars Chicago has to offer, appropriately titled "Historic Bars of Chicago." Included is deep history of our timeless watering holes, some that might not seem so historic but still are, some that just have stood the test of time, and some that no longer are with us, Requiescat in pace.
