Next month Go Bronzeville, a campaign to help Bronzeville residents take advantage of the many transportation choices in our city, is co-hosting our monthly reader meetup. This will likely be the start of a series of hangout sessions for Streetsblog Chicago readers and members of transportation advocacy groups and organizations in various parts of town.
The upcoming event takes place on Wednesday, October 5, 6-8 p.m. at Baderbrau, one of Chicago’s newest breweries, located at 25th and Wabash. Streetsblog’s meetups are always a great opportunity to hang out and network with folks who are passionate about sustainable transportation and livable streets. Here are the details:

Wednesday, October 5, 6-8 p.m. (probably somewhat later)
2515 S. Wabash, Chicago
Baderbrau is an 11-minute walk south from the Cermak-McCormick Place Green Line station. For a shorter walk, you can also access the brewery via several CTA bus routes. The nearest Divvy Station is at 26th and Indiana, by Mercy Hospital — from there it’s a 5-minute walk northwest to the taproom.
The brewery doesn’t serve food, but you’re welcome to bring your own.

Hang out with Go Bronzeville’s Ronnie Mathew Harris and Streetsblog’s John Greenfield and Steven Vance, as well as Go Bronzeville members and Streetsblog readers. Come learn more about how Go Bronzeville is working to improve transportation options and equity in the neighborhood known as Chicago’s “Black Metropolis.” John and Steven look forward to getting updates on transportation issues in the area for possible coverage on the website.
