March 5: Come Party With Streetsblog and the Guy Who Started It All

Streetsblog_Party_Banner.jpg

My former boss Aaron got lots of people excited in his farewell post when he said we’d be throwing a going-away party on February 5. It took us a little bit longer than we anticipated to steel ourselves for this moment, but now we’re ready. The party is on for Friday, March 5. If you’re in New York City in two weeks, we’d love to see you.

We’ll be putting on a rousing sendoff for Aaron, raising money for the Streetsblog cause, and talking livable streets over some tasty food and drink. And yes, there will be Karaoke. Rumor has it Aaron sings a mean "D’yer Mak’er" that you absolutely will not want to miss.

Here’s where to RSVP — hope to see you there!
