Two fun things to do

First of all, Streetsblog Chicago – which, on a shoestring budget, regularly produces some of Chicago’s best reporting on urban transportation – is holding a fundraiser to buy new shoestrings and resume publication after a brief budget-related hiatus. It’s next Thursday the 29th, in the form of a pedway bar crawl with Moxie, the LGBTQ urban planning organization. It meets at 5:30 at Infields, in the basement of Macy’s on State Street.

Without Streetsblog, many of these stories simply won’t be covered anywhere. If you’re at all free, I’d love to see you there. If you can’t make it, consider pitching in electronically! Streetsblog Chicago is a fucking valuable thing, and we shouldn’t just give it away for fuckin’ nothin’.

Also, less importantly, I’m going to be speaking on a panel with the lovely Yonah Freemark and Pete Saunders about neighborhood change at UIC’s Urban Innovation Symposium. We’ll be speaking on Friday the 30th from 12:00 to 12:45 in the Lecture Room at Gallery 400, 400 S. Peoria. Come if you want!

  1. The correct quote is: “I got this thing and it’s fuckin’ golden, and I’m just not giving it up for fuckin’ nothing.” Good luck with the presentation and I hope the fundraiser is a success.
