Pimp My Ride 

RTA shows off its new transit line with a block party.

At tonight’s MidTown 25th Anniversary block party, RTA commences its new route with live music and lots of beer. “It’s time to acknowledge our accomplishments and look to our future,” says Diane Dunleavy, MidTown’s deputy director. Free rides on the new Silver Line transit, shooting straight down Euclid Avenue, will celebrate a revitalized stretch that runs from downtown to University Circle.

Mayor Frank Jackson and other local leaders will be on hand at tonight’s commemoration. And local band Last Call will play throughout the event, while folks nosh on appetizers and drink a sampling of Great Lakes Brewing Company’s tasty beverages. Dunleavy says it’s a small slice of what’s in store for the district; a mountain-bike park and redevelopment of vacant buildings are in the planning stages. “We’re spicing up the block-party concept with a fusion of the arts, culture, and development,” says spokesman Kevin Ziegler. “This is an exciting time for an area on the rise.”
