We're hosting our fifth monthly Streetsblog Chicago meetup and happy hour next tonight at Jaks Tap in the West Loop/UIC. Our meetups are a great opportunity to hang out and network with folks who are passionate about sustainable transportation and livable streets. Here's the skinny:

Streetsblog Reader Meetup
Wednesday, May 4, 5:30-9 p.m.
Jaks Tap
901 W Jackson Blvd, Chicago

It's a block or so north of the Blue Line's UIC-Halsted Station and there's a Divvy station right in front of the bar. We'll be in the "Brewery Room".

Meet Streetsblog Chicago editor John Greenfield (deputy editor Steven Vance is researching transportation in the Netherlands for a few months) and fellow readers -- you know each other from the comments and social media.

We'll have a few pints and talk about hot transportation and public space issues, be it Loop Link lane scofflaws, transit-oriented development equity issues, and the future of the Lucas Museum proposal no fist fights over that last topic, please).

We'll be hanging out all evening, so come and go as you please. Hope to see you there!

RSVP on Facebook if you like.
