Last Chance! Get Your Tickets for Streetfilms: A Reel Celebration

We’re now less than a week away from our Streetfilms fundraiser and we want YOU to come enjoy a night of celebration and fun. But you’ll need to act quickly – we only have about 25 tickets still available starting at $50 apiece.

All the deets you need to know: Tuesday, November 16th from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the penthouse on 148 Lafayette Street in Manhattan. To purchase tickets and RSVP please click here.

Above we’ve embedded our Streetfilm from earlier this year featuring Randy Cohen, writer of “The Ethicist” column for The New York Times Magazine. He’s working on his monologue, which is sure to be funny and enlightening. In addition, many movers and shakers in the transportation world will be on hand – including NYC DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan who will deliver some special words.

Besides great food, drink and conversation we’ll also have lots to do: There will be a Streetfilms/Streetsblog testimonial booth, a peek at two brand new Streetfilms, and a short survey to let us know what you’d like to see next year. We’ll also be giving a presentation on our future plans and impart some fun bits of insider information.

Folks, we’re counting on you to help us keep producing the best films about livable streets on the planet. With over 3 million Streetfilms plays to date, our continued influence on local and national policy — and our ability to help advocates and policy makers communicate ideas to their communities — lies in the balance. Please help us advance our mission in 2011, and if you cannot come, consider a donation in any amount.

    That Paul Steely White is a purple fiend.

  • oh yeah? how do you know? despite your livable streets cred, you are apparently a cranky cross between a smurf hating ogre and a jetson family dog. what up with that?

  • fafacious

    I know this is Streetsblog, not Facebook, but I would like to say that I megalike Paul Steely White’s last comment.

    That and I look forward to the event. Hopefully I’ll see both of you there.

  • So that’s where Tralfaz comes from.

  • Yeah, I always wondered, but never enough to google it until now. Hope I never get invited to any Jetsons trivia nights!

  • Yuck

    Who can forget Astro saying: “Tralfaz? Yuck!” Best – and only – line from The Jetsons.
