Join Mayor Tom Barrett and Alderman Robert Bauman at Urban Milwaukee’s party to commemorate the launch of The Hop on Friday, November 2nd from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. RSVP Today

We’re offering one free drink to each of the first 100 attendees. Thanks to the generosity of Transfer Pizzeria Cafe, we will now have free pizza as well.

The Walker’s Point restaurant has mass transit at its core, drawing its name from its location at the busy intersection of S. 1st St. and W. Mitchell St. where thousands of bus riders transfer buses every year.

After you take your first ride on The Hop Friday afternoon, stop by Taylor’s (795 N. Jefferson St.) to lament the end of Milwaukee or celebrate a new beginning. Either way — whether you want to shout huzzah or drown your sorrows — the free party starts at 4 p.m.

Good City Brewing will also be offering both its Risk and Reward beers for free while supplies last. Company co-founder Dan Katt notes that you have to take a risk to get a reward, similar to the streetcar project. Thankfully at the It’s Hop-ening party all you have to risk are the crowds.

Taylor’s, located at the corner of N. Jefferson St. and E. Wells St., opened 23 years ago, just a few years after the federal government gave Milwaukee the funding that was ultimately used to build the streetcar.

The party is sponsored by Good City, Transfer Pizzeria Cafe, HNTB, Weiss & Company, Taylor’s and Gary Goyke and Associates.

Coming via streetcar? The nearest northbound stop is located at N. Milwaukee St. and E. Wells St. The nearest westbound stop is located at N. Jefferson St. and E. Kilbourn Ave. on the north end of Cathedral Square Park.

Please RSVP to help us plan.
