Tour Old Uptown This Saturday—Reservation Not Required

Chicago Architecture Foundation has a tour of Uptown this Saturday:

"Uptown was once a playground for fashionable young Chicagoans with plenty of spending money. The crowds are gone, but many terra cotta treasures remain. Come explore the heart of this district and the buildings that stand in testament to the popular lifestyles and architectural styles of 1920s Chicago."

I took this tour in 2004, I think it was. So many people showed up that they split us into three groups. It was good to see clusters of people wandering around the historic district. Well worth $10.
