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 […]
