75th Anniversary Celebration at the Columbia Yacht Club

CALL will celebrate its 75th anniversary on Thursday, June 23 at the Columbia Yacht Club (111 N. DuSable Lake Shore Dr.) from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Get ready to enjoy the company of your favorite CALL friends you haven’t seen in forever and a view of the lake and the skyline from a gorgeous covered outdoor space!

If you opt to be dropped off, be on the lookout for someone holding a bunch of balloons right where your ride can let you out.

Parking and transit information follows:

By Car-Parking Information

Public parking is available in the DuSable harbor parking lot located just north of Columbia, under Lake Shore Drive. The cost is $18 for 2-6 hours. Directions are here. If you have the SpotHero app and you want to save a few dollars you can try Field Harbor parking which is located off lower lower Randolph and can be tricky to find. It is across from the auto pound. The website with directions is here. There is also metered parking on lower lower Randolph.


There are three levels of Randolph St in Chicago. Columbia Yacht club is on the intermediate level. There is a turnaround just East of (and below) Lake Shore Drive. That is where you want to be dropped off and picked up. If you are approaching Columbia on Randolph St. do not go to the upper level of Randolph; that does not go to the lakefront.


The No. 60 Blue Island/26th bus goes through the loop on Washington and ends at Harbor Drive and Upper Randolph. There are stairs just north of the bus stop that go down to Du Sable Harbor parking lot. There is a walkway through the parking lot that ends at the lakefront. Columbia Yacht Club will be on your right (south). It’s about a 15 minute walk from the bus stop to Columbia.


If you decide to ride, there is a DIVVY bike station at the north end of DuSable harbor, just north of Columbia.
