The Chainlink

Anyone have suggestions for classy cocktail lounges
with sidewalk cafes, patios or drinking gardens for this upcoming ride?
See details below. The ideal venue would have plentiful outdoor seating,
tasty libations, and be open to hosting a couple dozen stylishly dressed
bicyclists. Bonus points for bars south of Madison, e.g. in the South Loop.

Cheers,

John Greenfield

Patio seating and jazz are a tough combination to find. A saxophonist and one of our fine parks might make a swell addition to your itinerary. I'd chip in to pay them.
The Matchbox is definitely under consideration. Actually, we'll be providing our own jazz soundtrack,
pulling a sound system playing Bird, Coltrane and Davis on a bike trailer.

Thanks,

So I hate to be that idiot that leaves a comment saying "cant do it this weekend!"

but this is a seriously awesome ride idea, and I hope there will be another one--I would TOTALLY be down, but I'm in Minnesota that weekend.

Seriously, this is stylish, classy, has a great soundtrack (it sounds like) and I wish you all EVERY success so that I can join in next time for sure 100%
a recent ride down taylor in what i believe is little italy proved very nice, saw some great outdoor seating
Good thinking - Taylor St. is very nice this time of year, and it would be good to
get some South Side in our ride. Thanks!
