South Loop Drinks - A Monthly Community Development Happy Hour by GSLA - Feb 10, 2016

Interested in the future of the South Loop? Want to share your thoughts on neighborhood development, learn from others, and provide input to elected officials, city staff and real estate developers? Just want to meet some fellow South Loopers and have a little fun? Then join us!

Starting in 2016 the Greater South Loop Association (GSLA) will host monthly happy hours - South Loop Drinks - for anyone wanting to meet up and be part of the neighborhood’s future. Each month will have a general topic, and we’ll invite relevant speakers to share some thoughts and be part of the dialogue. These sessions will also help the Greater South Loop Association fulfill its role as a conduit for neighborhood input on important community development issues.

There’s no charge to attend (of course, the bar is open!) but we ask that you register so we can have a sense of how many people will be in attendance. South Loop Drinks will be from 5:30pm to 7:00pm, the second Wednesday of the month. Here's the 2016 schedule (locations and topics subject to change):

W, Feb 10, Weather Mark Tavern (traffic) Register here
