Bummed because you weren’t one of the dozens of Streetsblog Chicago readers who showed up to Revolution Brewing for great conversation and delicious craft beer at our Donor Appreciation Party last Wednesday? Here’s another chance to hang out with sustainable transportation enthusiasts and support the SBC revival effort, while browsing very cool transit- and bike-themed clothing, home decor, and more. Here’s the skinny:

“Foward Mobility” party, Thursday, April 2, 6-9 p.m. at Transit Tees, 1371 North Milwaukee, free admission.

If you’ve never been to Transit Tees, it’s a unique store with everything from t-shirts with the CTA map embroidered on them to jewelry made out of vintage transit tokens to stuffed pigeons. It’s where I got my beloved ‘L’ system necktie. Best of all, much of this interesting schwag is made in-house. Read my interview with owner Tim Gillengerten here.

Steven Vance and I will be staffing a table and sharing info about our work promoting safe, efficient, and vibrant streets. If you’ve donated $100 or more to the Streetsblog Chicago Resurrection Fund and weren’t able to make to RevBrew the other night, be sure to stop by for your free copy of my book “Bars Across America.”

Representatives from the Transit Future campaign will also be on hand discussing the effort to create a dedicated funding stream for public transportation. And staff from Norsman Architects will talk about their proposal to to address Milwaukee Avenue’s dooring epidemic with a street remix.

If that’s not enough to get you in the door, there will also be free appetizers provided by Antique Taco and Transit Tees, and more beer donated by RevBrew!

Seattle’s Struggle to Keep the Transit in Its “Tunnel Plus Transit” Plan

|
Back when Seattle and the state of Washington made the (regrettable) decision to replace the aging Alaskan Way Viaduct with an underground highway, the consolation was that the elevated highway running between downtown and the waterfront would come down and make way for a nice surface street with dedicated transit lanes. Proponents of the deep bore tunnel even gave their plan […]
