Neighborhood Tour: Coffee and Conversation: Chicago’s Diners

A crucial part of any Chicagoan’s experience can be found in diners. They may not usually be in repurposed railroad cars (in fact, they usually are not), but they do provide a low-cost entry to folks gathering with family and friends. Most notably, they can also be a gateway to learning about a neighborhood’s history. And along the way, you might learn a bit about what’s going down the street or on the corner.

Join us for virtual neighborhood tours, featuring host and urbanologist Max Grinnell, as we explore the people, places and communities that make Chicago's neighborhoods so special!
