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.
