Top Ten Bridges - Afterparty

After Saturday's walk, some of us are heading up to the CityScape restaurant and bar for a birdseye view of three branches of the Chicago River. Those who have done this before will attest to the amazing views down the branches of the river watching the boats go by!  This is one of downtown's secret gems.  We've done this several times after this walk in past years and we always lament that more people did not finish the walk up here with us.  Please come as you will not be disappointed!!   We'll enjoy a fixed price meal of pizza, antipasto and a beer for $22.09.

This may be your last chance to enjoy this view as a new skyscraper is under construction on Wolf Point just in front of Cityscape. Please visit this EVENTBRITE LINK to register and pay for this event. This will only take place if at least twenty people sign up.  So if you RSVP yes here, then please head right over to that link to ensure we reach our 20-person minimum.  Full refunds will be offered to those who sign up if we do not reach the required number of attendees.

    Alisa's suggestion of mini burgers would probably not have satisfied us vegetarians. I really loved the pizzas - most of them.

    Poor beginning when pizza was put out where anybody who hadn't paid could help themselves . But it was clarified when there wasn't enough for everybody who had paid to get some. All worked out favorably in the end.

    I ordered from the menu but, I would not recommend. However, I really enjoyed the view and the company was great.

    This was a great gathering. The the view was great! The food was not worth the $20,. However, meeting new people was worth the money spent! Nice gathering of the city explorers!!

    Great people, terrific celebration .... poor service/value by the restaurant! Sometimes they just don't get it right. Thanks to all who paid; sorry for the bad value and for those who freeloaded by taking food they did not pay for!!

    Please print a name tag for Batya Willis because I paid for her party ticket and did not provide her name.

      Amy, if we don't get 20 prepaid tickets sold for the event, we'll have to cancel and you might be the only one up there. Your comment may discourage others from buying a ticket. Was that your intent?

      I try to avoid wheat. I am happy to buy food there

    Good news, we have 21 tickets purchased, so the after party is on! There is still time for others to join the group ticket since paying Cityscape at end of day. Anyone who prepaid will have a nametag and raffle ticket for the drink, so the staff can know who is part of the group deal.

    I enrolled to come, but pizza and beer for lunch are not my thing. Am I still welcome on the walk?

    1 · May 13, 2014

    • Tom B.

      Of course you're welcome to attend!

      May 13, 2014

    • aly

      Of course! And it's also wine and antipasto too. I tried to add or cocktail but contact said beer or wine.

    So excited for the views of the river and to celebrate the anniversary! I plan to attend the walk and just bought a party ticket (and in full disclosure worked out the deal with Cityscape). We just published a story on DNAinfo about the Explorers and bridges walk: http://dnain.fo/WindyCityExplorersWalk

    Our contact Patty said she will have ample food for everyone and scale the pizza (five varieties), antipasto platter (cured meats, cheeses, artichokes, crostini, crackers) to however many there are of us, but would just need to know a number of confirmed attendees.
