Tomorrow’s Streetsblog Happy Hour will be special in a couple of ways. First, it’ll be our quarterly fundraising event, where 10 percent of bar proceeds help support Streetsblog, and we dole out free t-shirts and hoodies (first-come, first-served).

We’ll also be joined by Transit Oriented Beer, an informal monthly gathering of transportation planners, advocates, and folks who just want better transportation options in SF.

That’s right — “Transit Oriented Beer.” With an awesome name like that, you won’t find a more fun way to enjoy delicious drinks that support high-impact journalism for sustainable transportation.

Stop by at Virgil’s Sea Room at 3152 Mission Street (between Cesar Chavez and Valencia Streets). We’ll be on the back patio starting at 6 p.m.
