Thanks so much to all of you who supported the Streetsblog Chicago reboot effort by purchasing bags earlier this week from our friends at Po Campo, who generously gave us 50 percent of the sales. We sold a dozen bag -- interestingly, half of them were Bike Share Bags. SBC's take is $460, which means we only need to raise $3,480 more to return to publication by our April 8 deadline, although we've only got six days left to do it.

Here's another fun way you can help us meet our fundraising goal. Join Steven and me this evening from 6-9 p.m. at the free “Forward Mobility” party at Transit Tees, 1371 North Milwaukee. We’ll be doing a short Q & A about recent hot transportation topics, and staffers from the Transit Future campaign and Norsman Architects will also be talking about their projects.

If you’ve given $100 or more to our reboot effort, be sure to stop by the Streetsblog table to pick up your complimentary copy of my book “Bars Across America.” And if all the money you’re saving thanks to free Revolution Brewing beer and Antique Tacos is weighing you down, we'd be delighted if you dropped some cash in our elegant, glass donation vase.

Sustainable transportation fans will definitely want to browse Transit Tees cool selection of bike-, bus-, and train-themed clothing and housewares. I plan on wearing my cherished CTA map necktie, which I purchased this very boutique.

If you can't make it to the shindig and haven't already done so, please donate to the Streetsblog Chicago Resurrection Fund today. It's only fitting, since Easter is right around the corner. So is Passover, and if you value SBC's hard-hitting transportation coverage, I'm sure you won't want to pass over this opportunity to help out.

Thanks again for your support!

A semi driver fatally struck a person walking on Lower Wacker Drive. Did a locked gate contribute to the crash?

The victim may have been walking in the street because a gate limiting pedestrian access on the south side of Wacker was locked at the time.
