There are just too many people to thank for the great night we had on Wednesday.  Siel who put together the raffle deserves more than a nod I can give her on a blog.  Carter, Dawn and Marybeth, especially Dawn, for their work in the kitchen.  Everyone who attended.  The army of sponsors who donated something to the raffle or kitchen (but just for good measure they are: New Belgium Brewing, Trader Joe’s, Ralph’s, LAXCarShare, Santa Monica Museum of Art, Big Blue Bus, Expo Construction Authority, Kigo Shoes, SHADES, FluffyCo, ReBinder,Dan Koeppel C.I.C.L.E., Midnight Ridazz, and Cafecito Organico.

After the jump is a photo essay from the event, but if you’re really curious as to what some of our plans for the future is, check out this punchy video Stephen Box shot of me and Joe Linton at 11:30 at night (way past my bedtime.)

If you missed last night’s event, Streetsblog has a couple other events planned in the coming months, beginning with a ride and hosting a park on Park(ing) Day and culminating with another fundraiser Downtown in December.
