Join Us for Happy Hour in DC Monday, December 9!

DC_winter_warmerPlease join us for a winter warmer happy hour at DC’s transportation-themed bar, The Passenger.

Streetsblog Capitol Hill has long been jealous of the swanky soirees our compatriots up in New York City throw every year, and we got inspired to throw our very first shindig right here in DC!

We look forward to seeing our partners in the livable streets movement — local, national, and armchair — and meeting readers that we might only know by their Disqus handles. We’ll have a raffle for some fabulous Streetsblog prizes — they make great holiday gifts! (Note: by “fabulous” I mean “t-shirts and stickers.”) Streetsblog will get 10 percent of the bar proceeds.

The Passenger is right next door to BicycleSPACE and has a special “train car” room that we’ll be hanging out in. Can’t get much more Streetsbloggy than that!

Let us know if you can make it. We can’t wait to see you!

Your Eyes on Your Streets: Space Hogs

|
Our first user-generated slide show, on bike traffic, was a lot of fun. (See it here.) This time out, we’re looking for pictures that show cars — the most inefficient form of transportation — hogging public space. Reader Evan Goldin has already sent along a few, including the image at right, which he snapped with […]

Boston to NYC: Bike-Share Will Be Worth It

|
As New York readers know, bike-share stations are hitting the streets after the program encountered a few snags last year. When members start taking the first rides on Citi Bike later this month, it will be the nation’s largest bike-share system, launching with 6,000 bikes. Right now the sight of those new bike stations is […]
