Friday: Join Us for the Aaron Naparstek Farewell Bash

Streetsblog_Party_Banner.jpg

Just a quick reminder, Streetsblog readers. Friday is your chance to submit comments to Streetsblog founder Aaron Naparstek one last time… in person. I know Aaron is looking forward to geeking out with all of you regular contributors, occasional chatterers, and masked avengers at our big sendoff. Even if you don’t reveal your online identity at the party, the sight of your warped, knobby fingers will be immensely gratifying.

Lurkers are, of course, also very welcome to attend. We’ll have some savory snacks, an open bar, and a virtually unlimited selection of Karaoke songs. And, just maybe, the mother of all BRT vs. light rail debates. RSVP here.
