The rally is at Daley Plaza in downtown Chicago from noon to 2 p.m. on April 15.  After that, the Chicago Young Republicans have put together a protest cruise on Lake Michigan.

LOCATION:  700 E. Grand Ave, Billy Goat Tavern at Navy Pier  MAPQUEST

WHEN: April 15th, 2009  from 430pm – 9pm

WHAT:  Chicago Young Republicans’ Navy Pier Chicago Tea Party

WHO: Everyone sick of reckless government spending and a Congress that doesn’t bother to read legislation it passes

The Chicago Young Republicans (CYRs) are really taking the April 15th Tea Party in Chicago to a new level — after the protest on Daley Plaza during the afternoon, the CYRs have organized a protest cruise on Lake Michigan to channel the original Boston Tea party more than two hundred years ago.

And they’ve really outdone themselves with this one — booking the largest tall mast ship in the country for a two hour Tea Party adventure on the lake, following a large rally on Navy Pier sure to get major media attention.

The festivities kick off at 430pm April 15th, with the ship sailing at 515pm. Big John and Cisco Cotto from WIND 560AM emcee the event, with some very (VERY) special guests promised.

Tea-partying on a tall mast ship sounds like a lot of fun.  Chicago people know how to do things in style!
