Description

Time for the March Face-to-Face Chicago!


Back of the Yards is "packed" full of history, most noteably the meatpacking of the Union Stock Yards. Today, two miles from those old stockyards is the Back of the Yards Coffeehouse. Drinking coffee and learning about the history of Chicago are two of my favorite hobbies and that we shall do for this month's Face-to-Face.


Join me in visiting the Back of the Yards Coffee House and another place in the community (stay tuned!). As always, we will set aside time for each member of the group to introduce themselves and share why they love Chicago. We will also hear from the cafe owners. Besides pushing ourselves out of our normal routines, and even comfort zones, we'll also be supporting local businesses. Cheers to that.


Finding ways to meet others from different neighborhoods and backgrounds can be difficult. You may not have time or not know where to go. Face-to-Face Chicago provides you the opportunity to learn about Chicago and meet other residents in a low-pressure, laid back situation in order to break down stereotypes and build up trust.

Interested? RSVP! Only eight spots available. Further details sent after registration. The experience of these outings are created by you. If you register and learn you are no longer able to attend, please do let me know as soon as possible so that I can open up the spot to another.

What is Face-to-Face Chicago?

These outings are not tours, rather informal gatherings of residents to experience the city in new ways, learn something new about Chicago, and discover the stories of others outside of your normal day-to-day.

Each outing will include a limited number of people in order to provide greater opportunity for us to connect with each other and the places we visit. All are welcome.

  • Participation is free, but you need to RSVP to reserve your spot. Once you RSVP, further details will be sent to you.

  • Two locations (locations will be nearby, but you will need to provide your own travel.)

  • Hear stories about the community areas from area residents.

  • Gain unique insight into the daily lives of Chicagoans from all of the city.

  • Any food costs are the responsibility of the participant. However, purchases are not required.

  • Participants need to be 18+ (or accompanied by an adult).
