We're hosting our monthly Streetsblog Chicago meetup and happy hour this Wednesday 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, August 3, 5:30-8 p.m. (probably somewhat later)
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.

Hang out with Streetsblog's John Greenfield and Steven Vance, as well as fellow readers -- you already 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 Far South Side transit service, the Manor neighborhood greenway, or Loop Link scofflaws.

Hope to see you there!

RSVP on Facebook if you like.

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.
