See You Tomorrow Night for Our Holiday Party at El Morro Lounge
Steven and I are looking forward to talking transportation with Streetsblog readers at our holiday party and fundraiser this Thursday, December 3, co-hosted by our friends from Moxie, an LGBT meet-up group for urban planning and public policy professionals. In case you’re not already in the loop about this, here’s the skinny:
Moxie and Streetsblog Chicago Holiday Party
Thursday, December 3, 6-8 p.m.
El Morro Lounge
4247 West Armitage
$10 suggested donation (benefitting Streetsblog and Moxie)
El Morro is a cozy, LGBT-friendly pub in the heart of the Hermosa community. We’ll also be holding a raffle featuring items from Armitage Avenue business, copies of Gabe Klein’s book “Start-Up City” and Sam Schwartz’s book “Street Smart,” a set of fancy Planet Bike lights donated by Boulevard Bikes and a Kali helmet from Green Machine Cycles. Raffle tickets will be available for sale for $5 each or four for $15.
Joining us to promote commerce on the Armitage corridor will be 35th Ward Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, who will be making remarks at 7:15. The party will conclude with a fun performance by two of El Morro’s talented female impersonators at 7:45, but Steven Vance and I will be hanging out at the bar until at least 9 p.m.
RSVPs are greatly appreciated. Hope to see you there!
