Streetsblog Meetup
Wednesday, February 28, from 6-8 p.m. (probably somewhat later)
Simone's Bar
960 West 18th Street
RSVP on Facebook if you like

Simone’s is one of the city’s most bicycle-friendly taverns. They installed their own custom-made bike racks on the sidewalk several ago, and in 2013 summer the bar got an on-street parking corral and a Divvy station. The futuristic décor is made from repurposed laboratory equipment, and they have tasty food and a great craft beer selection.

By 'L', ride the Pink Line to the 18th Street stop, and then catch a #18 bus, Divvy, or walk a mile east to the bar. Simon's is also located near stops for the #8 Halsted and #60 Blue Island/26th bus lines. Hope to see you there!

RSVP on Facebook if you like.
