Join us Oct. 17 for the first CTA Tattler Pub Crawl

Mark your calendar now for the first CTA Tattler Pub Crawl — Saturday,
Oct. 17, starting at 1 pm at Joey’s Brickhouse, 1258 W. Belmont.

built a great community, so why not have a couple of drinks together
while discussing our favorite topic — the CTA of course. We’ll make
our way between pubs using the Brown Line, the #49 Western bus, and the
Blue Line. Of course, we’ll use Bus Tracker to catch the Western bus.

Check out this Google Map for all the stops. And here’s the itinerary (all times are approximate):

  • Bummer! I have to be somewhere else all day on the 17th! Would be fun to see you guys again. :(

  • Double bummer. I'm stuck in Central New Mexico.

    Have fun! Maybe next year...

  • I'll meet up with the faithful at the Bad Dog, Mr. Tattler. Duty calls in the early midday and I must, to quote the Simpsons, please think of the children. After that it's all CTA and TOD!

  • I should be able to make this. I don't think I've opted-in to anything else that day.
    I've been to two of these four venues (Green Eye, & Pint). Amazingly, none of these were on the Beer Mapping CTA pub crawl. Although, we hit the Grafton across the street from the Bad Dog.

  • Unless anything weird happens I'm in.

  • I'm probably in... A just in case question... if the bar just so happens to be packed, will there be someway of identifying the group without awkwardly asking every table?

  • Stephen: We'll be wearing ChicagoNow and/or CTA Tattler buttons.
