Raise a Glass! L.A. Streetsblog Turns 3 on March 4

Next Friday, Los Angeles Streetsblog will celebrate its 3rd birthday.  Unlike previous years, we’re finally throwing ourselves a  birthday party.

So join us next Friday at the Spring Street Bar located in Downtown Los Angeles.  The bar has plenty of space, so we’ll take up a lot of it.  This isn’t a fundraiser (but what better time to make a gift than a birthday?) so bring some cash for drinks and food.  We’ll be getting there around 5:00 P.M. so stop by after work and say, “hi.”  No word yet on whether there’s going to be a themed birthday cake.

You can RSVP, and help spread the word, at the event’s Facebook page.  I hope to see you next week!

One of those would mirror the […]

Open Letter to Streetsbloggers

|
Friends, Just a couple of weeks ago, I believed that I would be writing my last post at L.A. Streetsblog next Friday.  As it turns out, having listened to all of you and talked to OpenPlans, it now seems likely that L.A. Streetsblog will continue publishing instead of migrating our efforts to a new website.  […]

Language Matters: Mind the Gap

|
As long time Streetsblog readers are well aware, our editorial team believes that language matters.  It’s why there’s a slew of stories arguing that using the word “accident” as a synonym for “crash” is both incorrect and insidious.  Last week, a reader pointed out to me that Metro, in both press materials and on The […]
