BLACK SOX, BILLY GOATS, & THE MONSTERS OF THE MIDWAY
Tuesday, July 19th, 6:30pm
 
Chicago sports are loaded with weird history and somewhat sordid tales. Whatever your team and whatever your game, there's something here for the Chicago Sports enthusiast!
 
Musician, historian, and radio personality, presenter Clarence Goodman has been all over the place. Whether it's entertaining senior citizens at retirement communities or performing at wine bars or giving both "virtual" and physical history tours around the Windy City or hosting inciteful, provocative radio programs, he has quickly earned a reputation as a 'history savant,' specializing in peeling back the layers of Chicago's unique past.
