Two Days Until the Annual Benefit for Streetsblog and Streetfilms

Thursday the 17th is just two days away, and you know what that means. If you haven’t snapped up your ticket to our annual benefit, “Streets of the Future,” time is running out!

Come to the new Bicycle Habitat in Park Slope, hear from Council Member Brad Lander, meet your fellow Streetsblog readers, and hang out with the staff who prepare your daily fix of news, commentary and video on Streetsblog NYC, Streetsblog Capitol Hill, and Streetfilms. We’ll have great noshing, beer courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery, wine provided by Cycles Gladiator Wine, and live jazz by the Ray Scro Trio. Many thanks as well to Velojoy.com for sponsoring the event.

Space is limited and we’re down to our last 25 spots, so I recommend buying tickets ahead of time. Seriously. Clarence captured the urgency nicely in this short clip from Guadalajara:
