NOBLE SQUARE — Commuters looking to grab a bite to eat after work or to stick around and enjoy live music at the CTA Blue Line Division “L” stop can do both at “Tuesdays at the Triangle.”
Set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays through Aug. 28 at the Ashland, Milwaukee and Division intersection known as the Polish Triangle, the outdoor entertainment series kicked off in May and features different performances and activities each week.
Organized by the volunteer-run Polish Triangle Coalition with support from Special Service Taxpayer Area No. 33, Ald. Brian Hopkins (2nd) and local sponsors such as Near North Montessori, “Tuesdays at the Triangle” is part of an ongoing effort to improve the transit-friendly patch that serves as a gateway to Wicker Park, Noble Square, East Village and Pulaski Park.
Weekly after-work entertainment includes blues, chamber music, drama, ethnic dance and music, as well as jazz and pop. Young performers are also featured as part of Chicago’s Year of Creative Youth, according to a news release.
The food vendors for the triangle’s 6th season are Langhe Market, a traveling offshoot of the Logan Square/Bucktown eatery that replaced Animale at 1904 N. Western; Tamales Express, part of Ravenswood’s Vegetarian Express at 4747 N. Damen Ave.; and Cevapcici, a food truck that serves traditional Croatian sausages.
