Greater City Providence

Urbanist Drinks! – May 7, 2013


Longtime readers may remember way back when we had a monthly event we called the GC: Exchange. It was a monthly event, held in a different neighborhood each month, with a short presentation, and many drinks and discussion. That all became too much work for us to pull off every month, so we stopped.

Now we’re bringing it back, kind of, with a simple monthly time to meet and mingle and drink and discuss urban issues throughout the region. Our first Urbanist Drinks will be next week, Tuesday the 7th starting at 5:30pm at The Eddy, 95 Eddy Street Downcity.

I know a lot of people want to talk about the Streetcar proposal which the Mayor has expressed renewed support for. I imagine there’ll be talk about Kennedy Plaza, the Superman Building, biking, and more. Come on down, grab a drink, and join the conversation.

  • Odd, I was speaking with somebody a few days ago about the exchange we had at Ada’s Creations. I’ll be looking forward to this.
