Hundreds of people are planning to march in support of an iconic Chicago reggae club.

The Wild Hare restaurant and bar moved from Wrigleyville to a new location at 2610 N. Halsted a few years ago.

Since then, it’s owners have been twice denied a music license.

The owners claim they’re being racially discriminated against.

Neighbors say they’re concerned about traffic and insist race has nothing to do with it.

Friday night, Bishop Larry Trotter and his parishioners will march outside the club.

Bishop Trotter says he reached out for Mayor Emanuel for support but had no luck.

He’s hoping the march will open up communication.
