Our Improved Calendar and Upcoming Events

Hardworking technologist Nick Grossman took a break from the big Streetsblog redesign project to upgrade our calendar. Click the red "EVENTS CALENDAR" link at right to see what they’ve done. If you were having trouble with the calendar before, I think you’ll find the layout is much easier to read. We’ve also created an RSS feed for events if you prefer to have events delivered directly to your news reader.
