Thanks L.A. Weekly and I’ll See You Tuesday

1_15_10_la_weekly.jpg

A lot of you know I’m not one to toot my own horn; but you also know that when a blog wins an award such as L.A. Weekly’s “Top Local Activist Website” that it’s not just a reflection on me as the editor.  It’s a reflection on the work everyone does that writes a story, fills in for a day, writes a comment, or sends a story idea along.  So thanks everyone, we’re making a difference!

Also, Monday is traditionally an off-day for Streetsblog.  I’m going to spend the down time trying to get the calendar into shape for the rest of the year.  If there’s an event you want to make sure makes the calendar section, please drop me a line by filling out the form here: http://la.streetsblog.org/suggest-event/

Recycled Movie Celebrates Park(ing) Day in East Hollywood in 2008 Mark it down on your calendar, September 18 is the date for this year’s Park(ing) Day LA.  While some people find the event, ahem, a little nerdy; for Livable Streets advocates Park(ing) Day falls somewhere between their birthday and Halloween in their list of favorite […]

Thanks a Million

|
While I’m going to syndicate some stories a little later today, I’m going to be away from the computer for much of this afternoon so their probably won’t be another "L.A. Only" story.  But before I sign-off for the weekend, I wanted to take a moment to note an L.A. Streetsblog milestone and thank you […]

King of CicLAvia: Richie Trimble’s 14.5 ft. Tall Bike!

|
In addition to the 150,000 cyclists that took to Venice Blvd. on Sunday, at CicLAvia VI: CicLAvia To the Sea, the “King of CicLAvia”  was crowned. The crown was not awarded by the event-creators, but by the buzz surrounding Richie Trimble’s over a hundred pound, 14.5 foot – to the seat, 17 foot – to […]

Welcome to LA Streetsblog
