We’re looking forward to hanging out with Streetsblog readers at tomorrow’s meetup:

December Streetsblog Chicago Reader Meetup
Wednesday, December 7, 6-8 PM
EZ Inn, 921 N. Western Ave.

At the event we’ll sign a get-well card for bike-friendly 21st Ward alderman Howard Brookins, who was the victim of a vicious kamikaze squirrel attack while cycling on the Cal-Sag Trail last month.

The EZ Inn has a great beer selection, and there’s always interesting music playing (maybe they’ll put on some Squirrel Bait for us). They don’t serve food but feel free to bring your own.

Our meet-ups are always a great place to network and talk transportation with other walking, biking and transit fans. We look forward to discussing the South Red Line extension, the recently passed TIF to fund the Red and Purple Modernization project, and whether or not those bike riders who crossed at North/Damen/Milwaukee with a walk signal deserved to be ticketed.

We hope to see you there. Until Wednesday, don’t let the nut jobs get you down.
