Have a Safe Labor Day Weekend, or See You Sunday

Streetsblog will not be publishing on Monday, however that doesn’t mean you have to wait until Tuesday for your Livable Streets fix. 

Jessica Meaney is throwing a baby shower for my wife and me on Sunday.  In addition to celebrating the first L.A. Streetsbaby, it’s also a chance to meet and hang out with many of the people that you’ve gotten to know electronically or just other readers of the blog.  As we said on the e-mail invite many of you received, we’re not expecting any baby presents; we just want to hang out on a Sunday on Echo Park Ave.

If you can make it, drop Jessica a line at jessica.meaney@gmail.com.
