Reminder: Saturday Is the Last Streetsblog Party of 2010

2010 has been a heck of a year for Streetsblog, especially Los Angeles Streetsblog.  We could go through all the details again, but let’s suffice it to say that I’ve been blessed with the best readers in the world.

On Saturday, we’ll be hosting our last party of the year, or more accurately Joel Epstein is hosting a party, this Saturday night in Brentwood.  The reception is to help us pay the rest of our 2010 bills, but it’s also a chance to celebrate the year that was for Streetsblog and for all of Los Angeles.  The year started with the news that LADOT wouldn’t be able to staff the Bicycle Advisory Committee and that Ed Magos was run down in the street in a hit and run crash.  Magos’ story was an ongoing drama that ended last month with jail time for the driver.

In short, the start of the year was kind of ugly.

But now we’re at the end of the year.  30/10 has become a national story, and a national model, for transit expansion and, as we discussed on Thursday and Friday, things are finally starting to look better for cyclists.  It’s been a heck of a year, and we’ve been there to cover it all.

So join us on Saturday night, for a last chance to party with Streetsblog in 2010.  The full invitation is after the jump.

Please join Joel Epstein, Karen Sarachik, Damien Newton, Councilman Bill Rosendahl, Darrell Clarke and the Board of Los Angeles Streetsblog (Committee in Formation) for a casual dinner reception in support of Los Angeles Streetsblog.

(You can still join us for our fundraiser. Email damien@streetsblog.org with an RSVP and get more details, here on Facebook.) When we first launched Streetsblog Los Angeles in February of 2007, we were the first attempt to really franchise Streetsblog outside of its power base in New York City. Admittedly, I struggled mightily those first […]

Join Us on Thursday to Remember the Best of 2011

Don’t forget, this Thursday is our first ever End of the Year Party, celebrating the year that was and looking forward to the year that will be. As we announced yesterday, due to a last-minute change, we’ll be holding the event at a new location, not the church where we held our re-launch party in […]

Streetsies 2010: It Was the Best of Times

If someone had told me a year ago that we would be celebrating a Bike Plan that the cycling community loved, that Metro would have already received some 30/10 money from the federal government and that the LAPD was being praised for its bike-friendly efforts at the end of the year I wouldn’t have thought […]

Consider Giving to Streetsblog with Your End of the Year Donation

Friends, Let’s be honest.  Without the support of Streetsblog’s readers, there would not be a Los Angeles Streetsblog. The generous support of Mark Gorton launched the website, and the generous support of the David Bohnett Foundation, California Endowment and our monthly advertisers Flying Pigeon Los Angeles and GEK-Law allowed us to keep up our outstanding reporting, but […]
