Join Us to Support CicLAvia at the Veggie Grill

CicLAvia is clearly working Joe a little too hard...

Tonight, a series of Veggie Grill restaurants is hosting a series of fundraisers for CicLAvia at seven locations around L.A. County and Orange County. A 50% of all meals bought after 5:00 P.M. goes to the CicLAvia coffers which is a pretty sweet deal. Joe Linton, Joel Epstein and myself are all going to be co-hosting the one in Santa Monica tomorrow night. In addition our Smackdown Conversations on different issues, we’ll also have some grab bag prizes including some CicLAvia schwag, a Streetsblog t-shirt and some Streetfilms DVD’s.

Fun and merriment are guaranteed. For a full list of locations, click here.

If you can’t make the event tonight, you could always help out CicLAvia by helping Streetsblog cover CicLAvia. Our KickStarter campaign for a Spanish Language Streetfilm on CicLAvia III needs more support and needs it fast. We’re $185 away from our goal and only a couple of hours remain. If we go over our KickStarter goal, we’ll invest in some hardware to make distributing the Streetfilms locally. However, if we don’t reach our $1,000 goal, we won’t get any of the funds pledged to the campaign.

CicLAvia XIII: Pasadena Open Streets Open Thread

|
CicLAvia touched down in the City of Pasadena for the first time yesterday. The route, centered on Colorado Boulevard, showcased the city’s great walkable historic core, preserved because the City of Pasadena stopped the destructive and costly practice of street widening and reformed parking, but that’s a whole ‘nother story. Yesterday, Pasadena saw plenty of smiles, […]

CicLAvia IX, Iconic Wilshire Corridor Open Thread

|
CicLAvia IX: Iconic Wilshire Corridor has come and gone. While my Facebook feed is full of happy adults and smiling children, I know that my social media streams aren’t the best way to gauge how well an event was received. I also know we didn’t make it to LaBrea…so that leaves about 80% of the […]

CicLAvia No. 10: Huge, Wonderful, Happy, But No Longer Newsworthy?

|
If a CicLAvia opens the city, and almost no media coverage ensues, does anybody hear? My answer is a resounding yes. Even if CicLAvia is now becoming almost taken for granted by the mainstream, it still changes lives, activates places, and brings Angelenos together. L.A.’s 10th CicLAvia came and went yesterday. Tens of thousands of people […]
