Wednesday: Join Us for a Winter Warmer at Building on Bond

The winter of #sneckdown isn’t done with us yet. After the weekend thaw, freezing temps and snow are coming later this week. So after you wrap up at the office on Wednesday, head over to Building on Bond in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, to warm up with Streetsblog and Streetfilms.

We’re looking forward to catching up with our readers and talking about everything that’s in store for livable streets in 2014. We’ll eat, drink, and rub our hands together in anticipation of the spring. Thanks to our hosts at Building on Bond, 10 percent of the proceeds from the bar will be donated to Streetsblog and Streetfilms. If you’re planning to come, please RSVP here.
