Streetsblog Birthday Party

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!

How About a Half Dozen CicLAvias in 2011?

|
The CicLAvia team met last night to review the lessons learned from last Sunday’s amazing open street festival in Los Angeles. Apparently, the committee was as happy with the results as everyone else that attended the event because they’re hoping to program between four and six CicLAvias for 2011. One of those would mirror the […]
