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!

In a segment aired Monday night, he and reporter Drew Griffin hammered away yet again at their argument that high-speed rail has been a waste of money. Under the tagline […]
