Streetsblog is Having a Party After Sunday Streets: Come Join Us!

SF_Party_Banner_2_.jpg

Streetsblog San Francisco is nearly seven months old, and with our nose to the transportation grindstone, we haven’t even thrown a party yet to say thank you to you, our readers, and the communities you represent.

So in the spirit of PARK(ing) day, we plan to put down some sod, fire up the barbecue, hand out swag, and dance to the tunes of my favorite DJ, Deep, on his trike, in front of Valencia Cyclery on Valencia between 21st and 22nd right after Mission Sunday Streets winds down on Sunday, July 19th.

We’ve coordinated the party on this day to simultaneously thank all the hard-working Sunday Streets volunteers who’ve made those precious few car-free hours such a wondrous example of how our streets can function when we take a bit of space from cars and return it to people.

Please mark your calendars and put on your dancing (walking, biking) shoes.  We’d love it if you can be there.
