Avoid Milwaukee Avenue This Weekend
Motorists driving around the city this weekend should do their best not to use Milwaukee Ave. from Wood to North Ave. this weekend.
Milwaukee Ave., a major diagonal thoroughfare which runs from just north and west of downtown all the way into the suburbs, will be closed for Wicker Park Fest, a street music festival, on Saturday and Sunday.
Drivers who are planning on patronizing the many restaurants, bars and night clubs Friday night/early Saturday morning, be careful.
Towing begins at 1 AM Saturday morning, which is one hour before 2 AM bars close and three hours before closing time for bars with a 4 AM license.
Don’t get caught parked on Milwaukee Ave. while your car is being towed as you and your buddies party into the wee hours.
As far as driving, we advise avoiding the entire area this weekend.
