This South Side historical bus tour on Oct 17 sounds interesting. See
details below. AREA Chicago is an interesting alternative publication
that exists as a website and a newspaper. It's run by volunteers.
Sorry for not getting the Olympics. Guess we'll have to find another
reason to improve public transport than simply for the sake of Olympic
tourists in 2016. This is just a quick note to let everyone know about
an amazing bus tour that AREA has co-organized of the far south side of
the city to happen in conjunction with our upcoming issue about the
periphery. Many awesome things will be experienced on this bus tour!
Also, please check out an event with one of our issue # 8 authors, Kari
Lydersen, about the amazing folks at UE/Republic Windows in the larger
context of the economic crisis down at the Cultural Center on the 27th.
And finally, mark your calendars for our next release party on november
9th. Hope to see you soon! As usual, please help us out by forwarding
these announcements to your networks.
