Join us on Wednesday 4/12 for a Streetsblog Meetup at the New Line Tavern
For our April Streetsblog Chicago reader meet-up, we decided to gather at an extremely train-friendly location, the New Line Tavern. Not only is this watering hole located directly below the CTA’s Clinton station and just north of the Ogilvie Center’s Metra tracks, it’s housed in the ground floor of the Powerhouse Building, which formerly powered the Chicago & Northwestern Railway, and the bar is decorated with vintage train photos. There’s also a Divvy station on Clinton just south of Lake Street. Here’s the skinny:
April Streetsblog Chicago Reader Meet-up
Wednesday, April 12, 6-8 p.m.
New Line Tavern
201 North Clinton Street
RSVP on Facebook (optional)
The New Line offers a full food menu and a wide selection of libations, including plenty of craft beers on tap. Streetsblog’s meet-ups are always a great opportunity to hang out and network with folks who are passionate about sustainable transportation and livable streets. Expect some good conversations about the O’Hare express train plan, why David Kidwell’s departure from the Tribune is good news for traffic safety advocates, and the stupidity of the plan for police to patrol the Bloomingdale Trail using ATVs.
Hope to see you there!
