    Wicker Park Bar Fires Bouncer After Racist Episode + More Intel
    As America recalibrates after a reminder of racial tensions in Charlottesville, Virginia, Chicago received its own hint after a racist episode at a Wicker Park bar. The owners of Swig, 1469 N. Milwaukee Ave., reportedly fired a bouncer on Wednesday after a black man told DNAinfo that the bouncer wouldn't let him in the bar on Saturday.

  • Sad. This bouncer enforced dress code. Did his job. Because the bouncer working before him did not with white patrons he's labeled a racist and loses his job. I hope people decide not to support swig for caving into all this racial stuff.

  • So was there a dress code or not?

    DianeW,
    Yes, it's safe to be outside, just not to look directly at the sun. you can view the eclipse indirectly in many ways. 1 is by making a pinhole and looking at it's ray thru the pinhole into a box or something. I'd look up do it your self ways. Also, take a moment to watch some shadows.

  • DianeW just nosey

    Thanks so much, mj!
