Generally held on the first Thursday of every month, Ald. Joe Moreno (1st) is hosting a "1st Ward Second Thursday" at West Town's Output Lounge, 1758 W. Grand Ave.

"These events highlight interesting bars in our neighborhood and are an enjoyable way for me to socialize with ANY 1st Warder who wants to come and have a couple (or more) beers/wines/mixed drinks/pops," Moreno wrote in his April 3 e-newsletter.
