Joan's on Third by JohnyRokkit
As a carless Angeleno, I don't often have this feeling - that twinge of regret that I should have taken the Metro bus or rail somewhere, but I had this feeling the other week and I'm surprised the drivers of Los Angeles don't have this feeling more often.
The Metro Red Line stop at Hollywood/Highland practically drops me off there.
From 10am to 3pm on Sunday, October 9th 2011, CicLAvia will create a free fun family festival on ten miles of Los Angeles streets. By removing cars, the streets are transformed into a temporary park - a wondrous, safe, family-friendly place. CicLAvia welcomes folks of all ages, interests, and every kind of non-automotive transit imaginable - from sneakers to skate to bikes to wheelchairs. Dogs, on leash, are also welcome. CicLAvia is magical. All kinds of Angelenos come together and they're all smiling!
Support L.A.'s biggest block party with its Kickstarter Campaign! CicLAvia will be raising funds online until September 14th!
I was just talking to someone the other day about how great it is to disconnect from technology every once in awhile. That kind of mindset always takes me back to books. I wonder what I should buy on my Amazon Kindle app for my iPad - sigh - okay, how about some great events this month that feature literary stuff instead?
