For this month’s Streetsblog Chicago reader meetup, we’re heading to Pilsen for a hangout session at Harbee Liquors & Tavern, a mainstay of the neighborhood since the 1870s.

Here’s the skinny on the meetup:

August Streetsblog Chicago Reader Meet-up
Wednesday, August 16, 6-8 p.m.
Harbee Liquors & Tavern
1345 W. 18th Street
RSVP on Facebook if you like

Harbee is located about a ten-minute walk east from the Pink Line's 18th Street station, and it’s also served by the 18th Street, Ashland, and #60 Blue Island/26th CTA bus lines. There’s a Divvy station just around the corner from the bar on Blue Island south of 18th.

According to a DNAinfo article, Harbee was opened in 1878 as Harvey's, but a licensing mistake inadvertently changed the name. Today it's a cozy bar with a great beer selection that draws a cross-section of Pilsen community members.They don't serve food, but you're welcome to bring in your own from one of the many excellent restaurants along 18th. I recommend La Casa Del Pueblo Taqueria, located near the Divvy station at 1834 S. Blue Island.

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. Hope to see you there!

"There were blocks that felt very safe and very secure," he said. "But then you're immediately – voom! – disgorged into three lanes of moving traffic with no protection."
