We’re hosting our monthly Streetsblog Chicago meetup and happy hour next Wednesday September 7. For a change of pace, and to take advantage of the great weather, this month we'll be meeting up at City Winery's Chicago Riverwalk location, located on the south bank of the river between State and Dearborn streets (not to be confused with their Randolph Street location). 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:

September Streetsblog Reader Meetup
Wednesday, September 7, 5:30-8 p.m. (probably somewhat later)
City Winery
11 Chicago Riverwalk (between State and Dearborn), Chicago

Obviously, it's an easy spot to get to from all the 'L' lines. The closest Divvy stations are near Clark/Lake, Randolph/State, and Wacker/Wabash.

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 glasses or pints (the menu's a little upscale but locally brewed Lagunitas beer is available at a reasonable price) and talk about hot transportation and public space issues, be it the new Union Station Transit Center, Bronzeville pedestrian access issues, or the sorry state of key Chicago bikeways.

If you like, RSVP for the event on Facebook.

Hope to see you there!
