The bikegeeks will, until further notice, meet at Cafe Ciao, diagonally across the street from Westgate's former location.
Here's what was posted on the Westgate website: (this link might not work for long)
SADLY, ON JULY 2, 2007 WEST GATE COFFEEHOUSE POURED ITS LAST CUP OF COFFEE.
TO SO MANY LOYAL CUSTOMERS THAT SUPPORTED US DURING OUR NEARLY 5 YEARS IN THE WEST LOOP.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT LOCAL SMALL BUSINESSES BOTH TO KEEP THE DREAM OF THE SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS ALIVE AND TO KEEP VARIETY AND CHOICE AVAILABLE TO YOU, THE CONSUMER.
IT WAS A GOOD RIDE
MY EMPLOYEES AND REGULARS WERE THE BEST!
BEST WISHES FOR HAPPINESS AND HEALTH TO YOU ALL!
