Really GOOD Event for CicLAvia!
Wooot! Wooooot! We had a GREAT time at the GOOD/GOOD LA fundraiser last Saturday! The event raised more than $6000 that goes to CicLAvia to host our upcoming free open streets events. Thanks to all the CicLAvia supporters who showed up and contributed to both a fun event and future CicLAvias! See event photos here and video here and here.
There are a lot of partners to thank for such a GOOD event. First off, GOOD Magazine and GOOD LA organized it all! Read GOOD! Subscribe to the Daily GOOD and to GOOD LA. The Atwater Crossing “ATX” Arts Complex site was a perfect venue! ThanX to ATX, Ava Bromberg, and VT Productions for location, location and location. The music was sweeet! Our ears thank the Dublab DJs, Very Be Careful, The Finches, Telematique, and GANGI. Thanks to Shawn of Harmony Sound for making all these folks sound great!
Thanks to New Belgium Brewing – which has a long history of supporting bike fun in L.A. and all over – we emptied 8 kegs of their quality brews. (Their Tour de Fat returns to Los Angeles on October 8th 2011!!) Thanks to
Luis Vargas of Razor’s Edge Wines for donating fine Australian wine. Lots more great vittles thank to ONE Drinks, Food Forward, Nom Nom Truck, Yalla, Ahn Joo, India Jones, Slammin’ Sliders, Surfer Taco and Coolhaus.

The The CicLAvia film festival rocked thanks to Streetfilms, Madhouse Muse Productions, Ted Soqui, Will timelapster Campbell, Elson Trinidad, David Ramos and Ricardo Maldonado, Aaron Kuehn, Carlos Marques Marcet, Joe Anthony, Marie Sullivan, and Ezra Horne. What did we used to watch before Streetfilms?
