Sidetrack is open from 3pm-2am Tuesdays. No cover. 21+

Rave Reviews for OUTspoken!

“The room was abuzz after.
People introduced themselves to the storytellers,
hugged them, and thanked the emcees…
It was truly great to be a part of it,
even just as an audience member.”

                              -Parker Stockman Chicago Literati


“Consistently great stories…and it’s ground-breaking.”

                              –WBEZ Afternoon Shift
