Cincinnati Salon debuts tonight

Join me and a bunch of others at Jackie Danicki‘s place in downtown Cincinnati for the first-ever Cincinnati Salon. Tonight’s guest speaker is Antoine Clarke, former communications specialist and strategist for Transport for London, London’s version of our SORTA (the Southwest Regional Transit Authority, the folks around here who operate the Metro public bus system).

The salon will focus on streetcars and the trials and tribulations of implementing such a system, their effectiveness, benefits, pitfalls, promises and whatever else comes up. A streetcar system has been proposed for downtown Cincinnati, the impetus for tonight’s conversation.

It’s free. So, come by for what proves to be a lively conversation and friendly discussion about an important aspect of Cincinnati’s future: How the hell are we going to get around when the Interstates officially and completely clog up at 4:59 every afternoon. It’s here, more is coming and it’s only going to get worse. Let’s work to better understand this important issue.
