Saturday night’s Streetsblog Los Angeles Birthday party saw over fifty people pack into the house of Amy, Jack and Jonathan Weiss to celebrate the 7th anniversary of our first article in Los Angeles.

There are too many people to thank for our ongoing success, at one point in the night we did a hand count of everyone who had contributed a story to Streetsblog, been featured in a Streetsblog story, had attended a Streetsblog event, had volunteered on one of our local boards, or had donated once before the party. By the time we were done, most people had raised their hand more than one time. It was truly as much a reunion as it was a party.

Of course, the evening wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing hosts. The Weiss family went above and beyond in their party preparation with birthday themed decorations and cake, catered food, home made sangria and just basically helped everyone have a great time.

Up next in our event calendar is an an urbanism + placemaking happy hour with Gehl Architects from 6 to 8 p.m. in Santa Monica on March 11. Snacks and drinks will be provided. Get more details and RSVP, here.

Open Letter to Streetsbloggers

Friends, Just a couple of weeks ago, I believed that I would be writing my last post at L.A. Streetsblog next Friday.  As it turns out, having listened to all of you and talked to OpenPlans, it now seems likely that L.A. Streetsblog will continue publishing instead of migrating our efforts to a new website.  […]
