Participants will start and end at a courtyard overlooking Meridian Street. In between they will journey to four different locations, hearing about how strikes, civil rights and economic conflicts shaped much of the city’s history.
“The bar crawl is one of our most popular events because it allows people to learn about our past and connect with each other in a really fun way,” said Keira Amstutz, president and CEO at Indiana Humanities.
Each stop (The Basement’s Courtyard, Spoke & Steele, Conrad Indianapolis and the Indiana Repertory Theatre) will feature performances by Indiana Historical Society actors, including a boycott of shops where African Americans were not permitted to work in the 1930s, an airline strike led by stewardesses in the 1950s and a chance to experience historic workplaces.
The cost is $50 and includes food and a beverage at each location. Reservations: http://2015barcrawl.eventbrite.com.
