We Need More Livable Streets Events…Help Make That Happen

9_8_09_train_bag.jpgEverything fits the theme at the shower.

Last Sunday's Streetsblog baby shower was a great event.  Thanks to Jessica Meaney and Deborah Murphy for all the work they did preparing the food as well as all my family and friends that were able to attend.  It was a great event, and we decided that we're going to do more of them.  Well, after I get used to not sleeping we'll do more of them.

In addition to being a fun time to plan mixers, the Tour De Ballona Bike rides or the Park(ing) Day ride; it also provides a chance to spread the Livable Streets message beyond the normal Streetsblog friendly outlets.  When we did the Tour De Ballona events in October 2008 and January 2009, the events were featured in the Daily Breeze and the evening news.  A Baby Shower is going to get less press, but still garnered press at Green LA Girl, Handmade Ransom Notes, a Facebook video by Stephen Box and lastly a Flickr set posted by me.  Not bad for what was a somewhat private event.

But to really help LA Streetsblog events get off the ground on our shoestring budget, I'm going to need your help.  I've set up a discussion group through the Livable Streets Network called LA Events which is to simply plan and execute Streetsblog events.  First on the calendar is next week's Park(ing) Day Ride and a December mixer.  If you've got other ideas, or want to help plan these next two events, feel free to join and throw them out to the group.

If you don't know how to set up a Livable Streets Network Account, you can read how to do that here.
