To kick start this year’s effort effort to win a $25K grant from The Chicago Community Trust Streetsblog Chicago is holding our monthly reader meet-up this Wednesday, March 8, partnering with our friends at Moxie Chicagoland, an organization for LGBT urban policy and planning professionals and their allies.

We’ll be meeting up at Alphawood Gallery, 2401 North Halsted, at 6 p.m. for a tour of the exhibit Art AIDS America, including a discussion of how the shows relates to themes of public policy and planning. Join us for the tour, or meet us afterwards, around 7 p.m., up the street at Millie’s Supper Club, a Wisconsin-style dining and drinking establishment at 2438 North Lincoln.

Alphawood Gallery is located two blocks east of the Fullerton ‘L’ stop, and it’s also served by buses on Lincoln, Fullerton, and Halsted. There’s a Divvy station just west of the gallery on the east side of Lincoln.

Millie’s Supper Club will graciously donate $1 for every beer we buy!

Thanks a bunch to everyone who has already chipped in to help us win this year’s grant. We’re looking forward to hanging out with some of you on Wednesday!
