This Week: Metro Meets, WeHo Parties, Greuel Speaks, Streetsblog Rides

Wednesday, Thursday – The Metro Board of Directors committees meet this week, and there’s already a lot of buzz about new rail cars, locking gates and an alternatives list for the Downtown Streetcar.  And aren’t they supposed to talk about the Regional Connector too?  Get all the committee agendas, right here.

Thursday – Are you ready to party West Hollywood?  The WeHo Bike Coalition hosts a mega fundraiser, with music from five bands, a raffle with prizes worth thousands of dollars and more.  I kind of want to win the Bikes and Hikes Tour for Six…For all the details, click here.

Friday– Building Healthy Communities, South L.A. hosts a free workshop by the legal aid foundation on what to do when developers come to your community with plans to create havoc.  Oh, and there will be music, art, raffles and more.  Get the where and when, here.

Friday – The American Institute of Architects wraps up its interview series with the five leading candidates to replace Antonio Villaraigosa in 2013.  The last candidate may be the one Livable Streets advocates no best, former City Council President Eric Garcetti.  Find out the when and where, by clicking here.

Saturday – Our South L.A. launch party.  The Eastside Riders birthday party.  Call it what you want, but a pretty awesome bike ride with a family-themed after event is planned for the South L.A./Watts area this Saturday.  I’ll be there.  Will you?  Get the details, here.
