RSVP on Facebook if you like.

Bar Louie has a wide selection of food and libations, and selected appetizers and flatbreads, and bottles of wine will be half-off until 7 p.m. After 7 the bar will be hosting a trivia night.

The bar is located around the corner from the Harrison Red Line station. It’s also served by the #22 Clark and #62 Archer buses, and several routes on State Street. There’s a Divvy station at the northwest corner of Dearborn Station, just south of Polk and Federal St. Hope to see you there!

  • Great. Have been missing it. Last one I had to leave early. So this time I need to make it up.

    “Sustainable Transportation” to me is electric cars and trucks. Sure bicycles are the epitome but for an extremely important reason beyond energy use which reason I’ll get to.

    I haven’t figured out the right word I think we want but Sustainable is actually a serendipitous by product of it.

    “Mass transit” gets it but doesn’t convey the current importantance of displacing the automobile’s anti-urban dysfunctional presence.

    The lowly fossil fueled bus would by itself have been sustainable. What sustainable lacks is the notion that quality urban spaces, liveable as you say, cannot exist within infrastructures that can sustain cars. They are mutually exclusive, livable streets and cars. Certainly cars in enough numbers to call them transportation. An automobile friendly city is an oxymoron at least downtown.

    Am I making sense here? Get a couple of beers in me and I’ll be able to make less sense.

    Looking to see us all there at Bar Louie.

  • I look forward to trying to remember why we must also solve a concurrent sustainability problem.

  • Not sure I follow your meaning but it definitely sounds interesting.
