We will meet at 5:30PM at the Picasso on Daley Civic Center Plaza (Washington between Dearborn and Clark Streets). Dress for the weather (rain or shine!) and wear the proverbial sensible walking shoes. The tour will proceed south along Dearborn Street, turn north up LaSalle Street, and proceed north on Clark Street to the Chicago Riverwalk.

Then walk, cab or Uber to C3 member, Linda Levy’s home at 600 North Dearborn, #1702 for drinks and nibbles (rumor has it this will be dinner enough for any one’s taste).
