Nine Days Until the Annual Benefit for Streetsblog and Streetfilms

Just a quick heads up in case you’ve managed to resist clicking on the “Streets of the Future” banner at the top of Streetsblog NYC. The annual benefit for Streetsblog and Streetfilms is coming up on November 17, and we’d be thrilled to see you as we celebrate a successful year for our coverage of safer streets, sustainable transportation, and lawsuits.

You’re invited to join us at the new Bicycle Habitat on Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn. We’ll hear from City Council Member Brad Lander as we look back on 2011 and cast an eye toward the streets of the future.

We’ll have live music, plentiful hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, and lots of prizes. And of course, as you may recall from past benefits, this is the only day on the calendar when Streetsblog commenters shed their alter egos and reveal their true selves.

This will also be a rare opportunity to meet our hardworking far-flung correspondents. Tanya Snyder will be in town from DC, and Angie Schmitt will be flying in from Cleveland.

Thanks to our terrific sponsors for helping us put together this party: Bicycle Habitat, Brooklyn Brewery, Cycles Gladiator Wine, and Velojoy.com.

Buy tickets now — they start at $50. Hope to see you there!
