Our last Streetsblog Chicago reader event at the Exchequer Pub was a great time, with dozens of transportation fans showing up for an evening of good conversation and deep-dish pizza. We’re continuing our monthly meet-up series tomorrow evening at Monk’s Pub, which is also located under the Loop ‘L’ tracks. Here’s the skinny on this Wednesday’s event:

Streetsblog Reader Meet-Up
Wednesday, February 3, 5:30-8 p.m.
Monk’s Pub
205 West Lake Street

Monk’s is a classic Chicago tavern with medieval decor, tasty grub, and a great beer selection. Did I mention that they have free peanuts, and you’re encouraged to throw the shells on the floor?

Streetsblog meet-ups are a great opportunity to talk about transportation with other folks who are passionate about making Chicago a better place to walk, bike, and ride transit. We’re looking forward to hearing your opinions about the Belmont flyover, rapid transit service on the Metra Electric Line, and the proposal for state legislation to ban red light cameras.

As usual, there’s no charge to attend, but we’ll have a donation jar out, in case you’d like to contribute to our 2016 funding efforts. Streetsblog Chicago is currently funded through April. We’re in the process of raising $80,000 by this spring to cover the following year of operations. Along with grant money and advertising revenue, reader donations will be a key piece of the puzzle for reaching that goal.

But, again, no need to donate in order to attend the meet-up on Wednesday. We hope to see you at Monk’s!

RSVP on Facebook if you like.

    Wish I could make it. Have fun all! Note: Wednesday is the 3rd.
