POCKET GUIDE TO HELL Haymarket Reenactment Afterparty @ Haymarket Brewery

On April 30th (this Saturday), AREA Chicago celebrates the release of Haymarket 1886:2011, a special publication detailing the bombing at Haymarket Square as its 125th anniversary approaches. The labor rally gone violent is deeply controversial, and its causes and effects resonate to this day. Copies of the booklet will be available for $5.

Haymarket Brewery is located at 737 W. Randolph (corner of Halsted
& Randolph). The party starts at 4pm.
