L.A. Streetsblog Lives. Time to Party


It’s official.  L.A. Streetsblog will not be ceasing publication anytime in the near future.  In fact, we’ll be resuming our normal publication schedule on Thursday, August 26.  But first, let’s party.

To celebrate our "re-launch," we’re throwing a party and fundraiser in West L.A. on August 25th.  The party starts at 7:00 at 11555 National Boulevard and will feature drinks and munchies served in a casual atmosphere.  We’ve already received RSVP’s from some Streetsblog royalty: Sierra Club leader Darrell Clarke, Move L.A.’s Denny Zane and the Green L.A. Girl herself to name a few.

The suggested cost of admission is $20 with a $5 discount for students.  All this is on a sliding scale…Streetsblog isn’t going to turn anyone away that wants to hang out.  You can pay at the door or via the PayPal and Just Give donation buttons on the right.

If you’re riding a bike, there will be a place to store bikes inside the facility.  If you’re a transit rider, the Big Blue Bus #8 can take you from UCLA or Santa Monica right to the party if you get off at Federal and National in West L.A.  If you’re traveling some other way, we can accommodate that as well.

You can RSVP to me at damien@streetsblog.org  or at the Facebook Page for the party.  Hope to see you there, but if not we’ll see you on the Internet.

  • Whoo Hoo! Great news about the future of this here website. I’ve been a bit lax in my Streetsblog duties lately, but I’ll be back in town just in time to get down Streetsblog style. Long bike ride, but totally worth it.

  • See, now I’m debating whether or not it would be gloriously hypocritical to drive into LA to attend a Streetsblog party. Hard decisions!

  • Jerard

    Well August 25th is my birthday, so I may swing by to attend.

  • Great news!

  • JustinN – I’m hoping another JustinN, one who’s last name is Newton, is in town and if he attends he would drive. If it’s good enough for family…

    Jerard – We’ll put a footnote on the cake if you can make it!

  • Erik G.

    Party starts at 7 AM!?!

    You nutty fund-raising animals!

  • @Justin N – it’d be awesome to have representation from Riverside at the party!!

  • Great news. Hopefully, I’ll get my behind in gear to help motivate more Beverly Hills residents – including school kids — to walk or ride bikes. On the other hand: sad news: According to Beverly Hills police, Beverly Hills was ranked number one in the state for the number of vehicles hitting pedestrians per population. BH walkers unite!


Thanks to Flying Pigeon, See You in August in Santa Monica!

Last Friday, Los Angeles Streetsblog and the Flying Pigeon Bike Shop rocked North Figueroa and NELA with our second annual bike ride/after party.  There were a lot of people who helped make the event happen, but we have to start with a huge thanks to Josef Bray-Ali, proprietor of Flying Pigeon, for everything they’ve done […]
