Join Us This Wednesday 10/25 for a Meetup at Cole’s Bar

This month Streetsblog Chicago will hold a reader meetup at Cole's Bar in Logan Square, one of my favorite all-purpose taverns in the city. Our meetups are always a great opportunity to hang out and network with folks who are passionate about sustainable transportation and livable streets. Streetsblog's Steven Vance will be departing the next day for a fact-finding tour of Europe, so this is your chance to bend his ear about new infrastructure and initiatives he should check out.

Here’s the skinny:

Streetsblog Meetup
Wednesday, October 25, 6-8 p.m. (probably somewhat later)
Cole's Bar
2338 North Milwaukee, Chicago
RSVP on Facebook if you like

Cole's is a block northwest of Logan Square's California Blue Line station, and it's also served by the Milwaukee, Fullerton, and Kedzie/California buses. There's a Divvy station just north of the station at California/Milwaukee.

Cole's is a cozy space with a good selection of affordable libations, and there's often some kind of interesting entertainment happening in the back room. At 9:30 p.m. on that evening there will be a comedy open mic, in case any of our readers feel like performing a side-splitting routine about the pros and cons of dockless bike-share. The bar doesn't serve food, but you're welcome to bring your own. Hope to see you there.
